On Camera Acting Levels I & II

What skills will I build in this class?

  • You will explore your technique with an emphasis on how tone/style of a project changes your process and outcomes.   
  • You will prepare various genres of television and film, making adjustments based on your script analysis and research.
  • You will continue to deepen your skills through examined experience, and a greater variety of practical application.  

What will we do in this class?

  • Most classes are structured like this:
    • Review learned skills
    • Learn and apply new tools through exercises
    • Apply all skills through scene work
      • You will be coached, given notes and put on tape
    • Watch and learn from playback of your work

Who is this class for?

  • All actors wishing to enroll in a class must schedule a FREE 20-minute consultation here.

What do I need to bring to class?

You will need a notebook, pen, pencil, recording device (iphone) and a water bottle.

How much work is done outside of class? Are there rehearsals?

  • You will need to review your notes and prepare your scenes for each class.  If your scene is not memorized or prepared, then it’s best to not work in class – it’s a waste of everyone’s time, including yours. 
  • Self-taped work will be required for certain assignments.
  • Rehearsals outside of class are done with or without your classmates; I recommend rehearsing at least 20-60 minutes per day, minimum, on your own.  
  • I will recommend some books, articles, podcasts, tv shows and films.  Try your best to read/listen/watch them.  

How is my work filmed in class?

  • All scene work in class is done with a reader who is an actor.  You are put on tape in a single, there are no two-shots.  
  • We will put you on tape using your camera or phone.  Make sure it is charged and you have space.  We will provide tripod, lights, etc.
