Week 1: Is treated exactly like an audition. You show up and sign in and he calls you in one by one with a reader and you audition for the part. You are emailed sides for the audition a day in advance and can pick from different genres. The rest of the session is acting exercises with David.
Week 2: You are given a scene a few days ahead of time with the character you auditioned for and will be performing scenes in the 2nd session on camera directed by David with master shots. You will be given adjustments and perform a 2nd take. A professional casting director, agent, manager or other industry professional will be on hand as well to watch all actors perform. You can bring a Headshot and resume and exchange information.
Week 3: You will perform the same scene and or additional scenes in the same film and same character using the choices you have made and worked on from the week before with close ups for each actor in the scene. Everything is filmed and available after class. David will be working with you one on one and helping you to make the strongest possible choices. He will focus on technical aspects as well as acting in front of the camera. He will also emphasize physical movements that fill up the screen. Multiple cameras will be used.
Week 4: You will perform your scene exactly as if you arrived on a feature film set. It will be professionally directed and filmed. You will have close ups and a master shot with multiple moving cameras, light and sound and a film crew.
Week 3 and 4 are run with multiple moving cameras and both cameras are fed into two large overhead television screens. Actors can watch the other actors perform from both angles on screen while they are performing live. This gives incredible insight. The scenes are professionally lit and directed by David. You will have opportunities for multiple takes during the full scenes as well.
You will learn more technical aspects of acting and how to create and make the strongest possible choices in front of the camera using strong physical choices that take in the environment. This is truly a very special acting class that will help you grow tremendously as an actor and continue to practice and perfect your craft.
