With Wanda Reinholdt
Saturday, September 22, 10:00 – 5:00pm
This workshop will focus on developing the skills required to give consistent and honest auditions. Both for people interested (and intimidated!) by the audition process, and those looking to improve their auditioning skills! Participants will be asked to bring a 2-3 minute monologue, as well as a 2 person scene they would like to work on in class. You are welcome to bring a scene and monologue that you are working on/have worked on. Maximum of 12 participants.
For the past 15 years, Wanda has directed, acted and been involved in numerous Theatre and Film Productions, some of which have been recognized within the Alberta Theatre and Film community. These include "Little Women", "Corporate Ladder", and her award winning production of "Graceland" by Ellen Byron. Her colleagues and the artists she works with hold her to be someone of giftedness and integrity - someone who inspires them to be better and to reach for excellence. Most notably, her production of “Graceland" won Best Director and Best Actress at the 2009 Alberta One Act Festival. And in 2011, one of the actors she mentored and helped to prepare for college auditions was accepted into a prestigious acting program.
Through her studies - Film Acting Apprenticeship with Neil Schell, IRP in Design, Directing Mentorship, BA’s in Theatre/ Music - and with her gifts of administration and encouragement, Wanda is the Artistic Director of Reinholdt Productions, a production company specializing in inspiring greatness through story. Uniquely, they focus on mentoring for personal growth - assisting actors, directors and managers to get in touch with the greatness within and to learn to live it boldly and outwardly. During mentoring, clients are encouraged to tell stories and create visual art out of their mentoring experiences. As this art is shared, it, in turn, inspires greatness in others. www.reinholdtproductions.ca

Each student will be provided Information on exposure times and how to take successful pinhole photographs. During the course we will be spending time outdoors taking exposures and then time in the darkroom developing negatives and making positive contact prints.
No experience necessary! Participants should bring 2 objects/containers to be made into pinhole cameras.
In order to make the cost of materials and course fees as affordable as possible, UAS will provide all materials (except for your objects - that's for your imagination!) Participants are required to pay a 20.00 material fee towards the purchasing of group supplies.

Michelle Rainey is an ACAD grad and did some pinhole work while a student, but then re discovered pinhole photography about 4 years ago when she and her husband set up their home darkroom, and became obsessed.
Since then she has really immersed herself in the process and has created more than a thousand pinhole negatives and more than 20 home made cameras. Last July Michelle showed a series of her pinhole self portraits and cameras at the Untitled Satellite Gallery. Michelle also participated in the Exposure 2010 photography festival with her photographs and workshop at Arts on Atlantic Gallery. Michelle and her husband Tekoa Predika have done workshops from their home darkroom but this will be Michelle's ﬁrst workshop at the Untitled Art Society. Michelle and Tekoa's photography business, Rainika, have started doing mobile pinhole projects and workshops with their new "darkroomTent". There will always be more pinholes to do, the possibilities with pinhole photography are uniquely endless.
