This workshop provides students with the practical knowledge they need when performing in front of the camera and each week we will practice putting this knowledge to action with self-tape home play challenges. Together we will go through different exercises in class for honing our on-camera skills with focus on character development, framing, visual focus, movement, monologues, subtext, playing comedy vs drama, single vs multi cam, acting for TV vs Film vs Commercial, and on-set etiquette. This workshop series is great for any actor wanting to smoothly make the transition from stage to screen. Guest appearances from professional working tv/film/commercial actors are anticipated.
