On-Going Acting w/ Peter Jensen

On-Going Acting w/ Peter Jensen Online

This ongoing online class will enhance your ability to work from a deeply personal and freely imaginative place, bringing spontaneity and risk, all in service of the text. Tools and exercises will be incorporated with scene work in order to develop the actor’s instrument (physical, emotional, intellectual) and build technique.

On Camera

For the first online class of each 4-week cycle, actors present prepared sides for the camera. Adjustments and exercises inform a second take. The session ends with playback and a critique.

  • enhance audition technique
  • address acting blocks
  • learn tools and exercises for prepping auditions (and for use when you land the job!)
  • actors can record their performances, to see for themselves the benefits of taking risks and making vital choices

Scene Study

The remaining classes in the cycle are devoted to an assigned scene from a play. Work emphasizes development of dynamic and compelling characters and relationships. Actors tap personal and imaginative sources in response to examination of the text.

  • reinforce the power of the moment, of personalizing and pursuing needs
  • learn to improvise effectively while developing character and relationship
  • deepen the physical and inner life connection within your own in-home environment
  • incorporate tools and exercises to enliven the text
  • address acting blocks

This on-going class meets once a week online and actors may re-enroll each month to continue developing their work.

These classes require a self-tape audition and/ or reel submission. LOGIN TO APPLY.
