Course Description

Acting for the Camera (Experienced level)

Flying Turtle Productions (Formerly the Abbey School of Drama)

This is a 7 class course on acting for the camera for those of you with some previous acting experience either in the classroom, on stage, or on sets. We will be videotaping class work and learning acting techniques for on-camera auditions, commercial copy, improvisation, comedy and serious scripted scene work.

Participants will become familiar with the filmmaking process, but emphasis will be on the acting process as tailored for the camera. We will practice techniques to develop the inner life of the character, clarify the dramatic action, and increase moment to moment awareness.

Students will be required to memorise scripts and MUST be responsible to scene partners in the later part of the course. Prior acting experience is strongly recommended.

This class has a smaller class size and is limited to 10 students maximum in order to provide the highest quality of instruction.
