In Person Classes
The curriculum

1. Reaction Shots - How to bring your emotion to the forefront without saying a word and being fully present when listening.

2. Making compelling choices - The difference between good and great acting is the choices you make within a scene. How do you know what choices ring true or are good? I will teach on that.

3. Prop Manipulation - how your props in the scene can help tell the story of your character.

4. Blocking - How to move around within a scene to add depth and texture to the moment.

5. Character Building - Transforming your interior and exterior as an actor, adding the objectives of your character in a scene, and inserting that into your behavior.

6. Strength and Weakness - Finding out your superpower while also diagnosing your kryptonite. Actors always have things they naturally excel at. We want to pinpoint that but also work on exercising your weakness until they are less of a problem when fortifying your craft.

7. Acting For Camera Angles - A close up and wide shot will have a different effect if you are acting the same in each. We will go into why you need to change up your movements when the camera gets close to your face.

8. Continuity - Making sure your performances can cut together in the editing room is important. If you are inconsistent with your character in your movement, it can become distracting. We will go into this more.
