Acting for the camera more closely reflects the way we perceive things in reality than acting on the stage, and requires its own unique set of skills. Explore how the camera lens can become your best friend. In this eight-week workshop, you’ll build the basic skills needed to act and audition for television, film and commercials as well as set up your own camera and recording system at home for creating submissions and promoting yourself as an actor. Classroom footage will be made available to students to observe their progress and see how they read on-camera. (For reasons based around COVID-19, we will focus on monologues and shooting any scenes as individual shots so as to maintain safe protocols and social distancing.) You’ll also receive tips for how to find the right agent or manager and book professional work. Class materials and recordings of student work will be posted through a Google Classroom.
