Advanced Acting for the Camera
“The instructor got to know the actors well and would challenge actors to grow."
This class is different each time it’s offered, because it is designed each time for the specific students in the class. The class begins with a review of basic on-camera technique, followed by attention to advanced audition techniques. The rest of the course will focus on areas of special interest to the students. Past topics have included: Advanced Audition Techniques, Auditioning for Stonehenge, Memorization Techniques, Acting with One or No Eyes, Two- and Three-Character Scenes, and many others. All class work will be filmed and scrutinized. Seven weeks. For actors who are serious about working in film, television, industrials and commercials. Prerequisite: One on-camera class or permission of instructor.
7 sessions; No class Nov 30 (Thanksgiving weekend)
