On-Camera 2: Scene Study with Robert Verlaque is for intermediate or advanced actors and offers the opportunity to explore and fine tune their work on camera. Emphasis is placed on the importance of working moment-to-moment, having a clear point of view, and ultimately being specific with the character’s circumstances while honoring the requirements of the script. The class offers the chance to combine the actor’s acting with the technical demands of the camera to give a living, truthful, three-dimensional human being existing in the circumstances of the script.

You will work on-camera, with playback and feedback, working on two scenes, primarily from contemporary films and TV shows, assigned by the teacher. The process will include script analysis, incorporating direction, and exploring flexibility in making choices and adjustments.

This class is limited to ten actors so that everyone works every week and it is intended for actors who have had theatre experience, camera experience, or both. This class can be taken after completing On-Camera 1: Foundation or equivalent.

This class meets once per week.

Our On-Camera 2: Scene Study with Peter Miner is for intermediate or advanced actors. It explores all aspects of on-camera acting from the first audition to the final set up. Think of it as a gym – a place to stretch and strengthen your skills, to get playback and feedback, and to learn not only from your own work, but from the work of your fellow actors.

You will work on-camera, with playback, five of the six weeks. The exception is week four in which we examine the rehearsal process, including what to do if you get no rehearsal (everyone works, but we don’t shoot). The scenes we use come primarily from contemporary films and TV shows and are assigned by the teacher. We record your work on a computer and you can download to a flash drive for study at home.

This class is limited to twelve actors so that everyone works every week and it is intended for actors who have had theatre experience, camera experience, or both. This class can be taken after completing On-Camera 1: Foundation or equivalent.

This class is designed to be repeated, either at once or after a hiatus. Completion is not automatically linked to acceptance for the On-Camera 3: Master Class
