Learn the difference between acting on a stage and acting for a camera. Onstage, an actor has to project their emotions, voice, and physicality to a room of people. On camera, an actor only has the camera for an audience. A camera can pick up anything an actor gives it: the slightest breath, or eye movement, even a thought.
Week 1 students will watch a few examples of great film and TV performances, to learn from, as well as be assigned a monologue to perform for camera, by the end of the week.
Week 2 students will get to pick a monologue of their choosing to workshop and perform by the end of the class.
Each student should be comfortable practicing in front of the rest of the class, as everyone will learn more from watching each other. Masterclass style.
Students will learn the nuances, and subtleties of acting for a camera. They will leave the class with two monologues camera-ready.
