On-Camera Scene Study: Exploring Script, Experience & Imagination
Instructor: Robert Verlaque
Our On-Camera 2: Scene Study online class is for intermediate or advanced actors looking to explore and fine tune their work on camera. This class offers the chance to combine the actor’s technique with the technical demands of the camera to portray a living, truthful, three-dimensional human being existing moment to moment within the circumstances of the script.
In this class, which meets online once a week, you will be assigned on-camera scenes from contemporary films and TV shows and learn to incorporate script analysis, teacher feedback, and specificity in making the choices that define your character’s point of view. Working online, you will learn to set and work within your frame, incorporate your eyelines, and employ subtlety in mediums and close-ups.
On-Camera 2: Scene Study meets online once a week for six weeks. This class is limited to ten actors, and is intended for those who have had theatre experience, camera experience, or both. This class can be taken after completing On-Camera 1: Foundation or equivalent.
