On-Camera Acting I
“I thought the prompts and thoughts processes given to help us transform from being an actor to being a character were very valuable”
An intensive course devoted to acting for film and television, specially adapted for distance learning. The class will include audition techniques, the role of commercial spokesperson, specifics of industrial film work, and techniques for approaching film and television scripts. Material will include monologues and scenes in which scene partners are off camera. All class work will be filmed as it might be on a real set and then critiqued. (This class was previously known as Intro to Acting for the Camera.)
