Why does acting on camera look so easy? Because it is!
In these ongoing acting classes for film and TV, actors will discover the secrets to connecting with thier scene partner(s), being in the moment, and why your best “choice” is probably to just be his- or herself. This class will change the way you think about acting for the camera and the way you watch movies. Really.
The Emerging Filmmakers Project's Acting for the Camera class introduces actors to the difference between acting in front of an audience and acting in front of a camera and how 'less is more' on film. This class is ideal for anybody who wants to take the first few steps to film acting (and those who want to do it better) or those with exeperience acting on stage who want to discover how to deliver great moments on screen. Classes will cover screen techniques, connecting with your scene partner, surrendering to your environemnt, auditioning for film, cold reading, and more. Students will spend a considerable amount of time being filmed for playback in class.
Class is held on Tuesday nights from 6:30 until 9:30. Sessions usually begin on the first Tuesday of each month. Cost is $135 per month (4 classes).
