On Camera II

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.

On Camera III

The On-Camera Master Class is a class for actors who have already had extensive on-camera experience and/or extensive theatre experience with some on-camera work. It is limited to eight actors so that we have the time to explore in depth living in the moment, really listening and responding as if you had never heard or spoken these words before while remaining true to your character and meeting the technical demands of the medium.
