Part-Time Scene Study

CLASS DESCRIPTION

All actors, whether novices or veterans, need to stretch their muscles. Scene Study is where a new actor discovers the joys of bringing a story to life, and where a seasoned professional learns to push themselves in exploring a different part of their craft.

Through extensive character work and text analysis, our Scene Study for Film & Television classes focus on telling the story of a scene and embodying a character’s arc (their journey throughout the scene). You will discover the emotional and physical life of your character, use text analysis to mine scripts for motifs and indisputable facts, and learn how to navigate your character’s objectives while responding to the choices of your scene partner.

The skills learned in these classes allow actors to build and strengthen the tools needed to effectively book and perform larger, more complex roles.

Course Description:
One of the biggest challenges actors face in their career is being at the mercy of other people’s creative visions. How do we stand out, or change someone’s mind and convince them you are right for the role?
Show them by creating your own work. Show them what you are capable of.
This course will teach emerging talent how to generate their own content that will showcase their abilities, talent and individuality. In addition to this, the course will create an understanding of script genesis and approaching scene study from an entirely new angle: the angle of the CREATOR.

Not only will the actor’s creative mind become actualized, but their performance skills will amplify as a result of understanding all parts of the play building process. We will write, create and perform pieces made entirely by the group.

Every student that I have worked with on this process has found it an invaluable part of their training & experience and many of them have gone on to have very successful careers as actors, writers, directors and editors.

12 weeks. Countless scripts. 1 showcase. Let’s do it.

In this class you will learn and implement:

  • Developing the student actor’s personal process of preparation from cold reading to performance.

Oooo! I still remember all my classes I took here. You gave me a completely different perspective on acting and allowed me to bring my real life experiences into scene work. I was just thinking about the hallway exercise the other day!
