Taught by Gail Cronauer -
This class is for students who are seriously interested in pursuing screen acting, actors who are seeking to make the transition from stage to screen, and actors who have worked on screen but seek to be more effective in auditions or on the set. Students perform a series of exercises, which explore the nature of screen acting and techniques which will help one to become an effective screen actor. Film acting is the technique of you. Your job is to bring your YOUniqueness to the screen. What does that mean and how do you accomplish it? Emphasis is placed on developing audition techniques and skills, using improv, interview and cold readings. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. We will discuss the audition and callback experiences as well as what happens AFTER you are cast. We will study how films are shot and how different shots require different "acting styles", as well as basic screen acting vocabulary, personnel, and techniques. Students take their personal videotapes home to study. Resources and further avenues of study will be suggested.
This class normally meets on Saturdays for 3 hours for 4 weeks. Check calendar on website to see if there is a class currently running.
