On Camera 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.
