Six Week Workshop - Principles of Acting - All Levels Welcome
Tentative start date is Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Our next class offering will be a traditional scene study/principles of acting class.
The best way to learn how to act is to get up and do it, and watch each others' work evolve and grow. This class will require at least one out of class rehearsal with a scene partner per week, and some reading will be required for newbies. Ages 18 and up, or by special permission of instructor.
Limited to 12 participants. A brief phone or in-person interview will be required for beginners prior to admission. Save 10% if you purchase online before July 4, using the code 'EARLY" at checkout. $50 deposit required to secure your spot. Send me an email to arrange an interview.

The next on-camera workshop will be held in September, 2018.
The on-camera workshop in April was awesome! What I realized, in the end, is that folks really need to do more foundational acting work before attempting on-camera scenes, and the next workshop will require at least one year of training prior to entry. This class is different from other on-camera classes in that we don't just put you in front of a camera and watch a monitor (that has its place, for sure). In this workshop, we explore the filmmaking process so that you will be prepared to work on a film set.
Five Week On-Camera Workshop - April, 2018
In the past I didn't allow cameras in our classroom, but after being in film school for three years, I've changed my mind, completely. I do believe that actors should learn the basics of acting technique before they worry too much about a camera, so we'll always talk about the ABC's of acting. But after making a few films, I see now more than ever that actors need a space (a lab, if you will) to get to know the medium they are performing in before they go to set. They need have a strong awareness of themselves in the frame, as well as understand what directors and editors appreciate from them in the cutting room, and beyond. That includes understanding continuity, vocal levels, tension, performance energy, camera setups, and how to develop a strategy for giving your best performance when everything seems topsy-turvy, out of order, and distractions abound. Limited to 10 participants. A brief phone interview will be required for beginners prior to admission. Save 15% if you purchase online before March 25, using the code 'EARLY" at checkout.
Class fee: $250.
