If you are an actor, who is looking to fine-tune their performance to impress and reach a wide international audience – especially in the English speaking film industry – then this is the class to truly open new doors for you and elevate your acting to a whole new level.
In this intensive weekend class, you will discover new facets of your craft, learn new tools and find out what casting directors and audience alike are looking for in your performance.
You will find out what makes you unique in your acting and how to present the best of your talent in a way that will capture audiences around the globe!
You will work with a scene partner on a scene that you are assigned before the class begins, to give you time to prepare in your own way to get the most out of the course.
On Saturday we will dive into your scenes and polish them to the highest possible standard you can reach. We will go through different approaches to preparation, so you know how to get yourself “in the zone” when you walk onto your film set. You will also receive a technical introduction to on-camera acting, continuity and blocking so you’re ready for the big day:
On Sunday we will film your scenes.
In the final segment of the class, we will review the material and you will receive feedback on your performance, based on what we see on camera.
You will be free to keep and use the footage from this workshop in whichever way you like – however, the focus when filming will be on the exercise and your growth as an actor.
Space is limited to 10 actors, so early sign-up is recommended.
