The Actors Centre

Action on Action - Exploring Screen Acting

WHAT IS IT? Acting for the camera, beginners to advanced, looking at strategies for dealing with little or no rehearsal in film and TV. It can be a surprise to actors whose training is rooted in theatre traditions that there are often no rehearsals in TV and film, and any rehearsals that do take place are usually for technical reasons. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using contemporary TV/film scripts the workshop will deal with the three key questions you need to ask for every scene and associated choices in regard to your relationship with the camera. We will look at what works, what doesn’t, how much freedom you have and the old chestnut, is less really more? WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? The ability to bring specifics, and therefore clarity to your performance on screen. The acquisition of a camera savvy technique, in order to create compelling, watchable performances. Price: £55.
