On Camera Scene Study

“Working with Peter Miner has created in me a comfort and confidence in front of the camera that I’ve never experienced before from other instructors. Anyone wanting to work in the industry should have this opportunity.” 


Tuesdays 6:00pm – 10:30pm
July 11-August 15, 2017
Fee: $485 – 6 weeks ($395 if taken concurrently with scene study)

In the On-Camera Scene Study class the focus is on keeping the words truthful and trusting the camera’s ability to read your mind and your emotions, resisting the temptation to exaggerate vocally and physically. We will explore using the script, your experience, and your imagination to create and inhabit the characters, and then when the camera is rolling—living “in the moment”, not pre-planning, but listening and reacting spontaneously.

The class is limited to twelve actors so that everyone works every week. It is open to actors who have had acting and/or on-camera experience or have completed On-Camera I or equivalent.

The class is designed to be repeated, either at once or after a hiatus. Completion is not automatically linked to acceptance for the On-Camera Master Class.
