This is our advanced acting for the camera course for actors (16 years and up). You must have previously taken an intermediate-advanced course to be admitted to this session. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
During this course, we will take scene study and audition technique to the next level, challenging students to go deeper in their work. Cameras are used in class, and students receive access to all footage filmed.*
*Scenes and other footage are recorded onto SD cards, which we provide. These SD cards are given to students so the work can be reviewed at home.
Course runs for five consecutive Tuesday evenings. Classes are from 6:30pm – 9:30pm.
What the course covers:
- Advanced Scene Study
- Advanced Audition Technique (for TV and Film)
- Getting Out of Your Head
- Connecting to the Body
- Character Building
“This is a very beneficial team to study with. Awesome folks. If you’re a seasoned actor or a newbie, you can take something substantial away. Whether it is refreshing on breaking down a script, some technical camera aspects, chatting about the business or, most importantly, character building then you’re going to the right place. It’s a healthy mix of renew, revitalize and connect. I’ve also had great networking through the class. Lastly, they recognize that one approach doesn’t work for all actors, (but will offer great approaches) they just want to see and get the best out of you. Looking forward to taking more.” – Amanda Yeoman Brooke
