Advanced On-Camera: Commanding the Camera
Instructor: Robert Verlaque
This On-Camera 3 Master Class is a class for advanced actors who have already had extensive on-camera experience and/or extensive theatre experience with some on-camera work.
Class size 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.
This class meets once a week for 6 weeks, and can be repeated to continue developing your work.
