Hey Actors! Stop "acting" and start "being" if you want to do great work on camera!
Learning to trust that just being yourself is the surest way to experience great moments in front of the camera. Best part is, you'll stop worrying about your character's backstory or making choices before the camera rolls because all that stuff gets in the way of you listening to your scene partner.
The workshop teaches some simple on-camera techniques and tips to help you connect with your scene partner, surrender to your environment, and to find the meaning in the words on the page. This class reinforces the idea that "less" really is "more" on film and that the best "choice" an actor can make is usually to be themself. You'll also learn a fantastic, simple, and fast way to learn your lines.
This class will change the way you think about acting. Really.
Class is usually held on the fourth Sunday of the month. Upcoming schedule:
Sunday, June 24th. 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sunday, July 29th. 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
