Overview

Participants will learn the differences between what is effective on stage versus the demands of the screen. As well as developing strategies for meeting the demands of screen acting, students will become more familiar with the filming process, acting for camera, the equipment and roles of the crew members including the terminology used.

The course will allow each participant to experience the fundamentals of screen acting technique, such as hitting marks, staying in your light, finding the light in a tracking shot, working with sound crew and continuity as well as dispelling some of the myths surrounding the process of screen acting.

The course will begin with camera-based classes that are designed to show students how the camera can aid a performance rather than hinder it.

Suitable for aspiring actors who are interested in screen acting, film acting and acting for beginners classes.
