The Class Breakdown
Week 1 – The Journey & Discovery
A few days before the start of each week one class, a scene and its accompanying script will be sent to you via e-mail. The first class is devoted to scene study and rehearsal. Here we focus on establishing character as well as uncovering what is not on the written page.
Week 2 & 3 – The Shoot – On-Set Preparation
Each scene will be shot with a focus on playing for the camera, i.e. finding eyelines/ marks, adjusting performance to match frame size, cheating for the camera, etc. Our intent is to provide as realistic a setting as possible so that when you walk onto an actual set (if you haven’t already) you’ll be familar with what is thrown at you.
Week 4 – Popcorn Night
We get together, review and critique the edited scenes.
