James Bartholet to Conduct Acting Workshop on Sunday

LOS ANGELES — James Bartholet, an experienced mainstream and adult actor, will be conducting an acting workshop this Sunday in West Hollywood.

Geared toward adult performers who want to sharpen their acting chops, this new one-day workshop will cover the basics of acting and improvisation. There will also be videotaping of practice scenes.

The workshop will start promptly at 1 p.m. and continue until 5:30 p.m. The price is $30 per student. Interested performers should contact Bartholet at james@galaxypublicity.com and put “workshop sign up” in the header, or call the production office at 310.652.0770.

“We’ve had good responses from our previous workshops, and a lot of performers have been asking when I’m going to do another, so I decided to do another class this month," Bartholet said. "With so many parodies and features being shot, we can’t rely on just being able to perform on screen, we’ve got to be able to act as well."

Bartholet continued, “The workshop will go over scene study, character development, improvisation skills, and we will tape a scene that the students pick from a mainstream film, television, or stage production so they can have tape of themselves doing a mainstream scene."

Bartholet has many years experience in acting and directing in the mainstream industry, and acts in many adult features. His adult credits include Hustler’s “This Ain’t Happy Days XXX," “Not Really The Dukes Of Hazzard A Hardcore Parody," “The Vow," “Not Charlie’s Angels XXX," "This Ain’t Cops XXX,“ The A Team XXX," “Not Married With Children 2 XXX," and “Drill A Saw Porn Parody."

Bartholet has a degree from Los Angeles Valley College, and has received several acting awards and nominations from his many years on stage. He trained with ACT in San Francisco and with many different acting coaches in Los Angeles. Bartholet has performed in various stage productions from coast to coast, as well as television and films, and performed sketch comedy at The Comedy Store and The Ice House.
