WORKSHOP 103 - ACTING AND DIRECTING FOR THE CAMERA

 

Acting and Directing for the Camera:

 

This class's unique focus is to bring Actors and Directors together and to help actors deliver their highest performances in front of the camera. Students will have the opportunity to perform on both sides of the camera to gain a better understanding of the creative process and the collaborative efforts involved in intuitive acting and directing. Students will write, direct and perform a short  monologue which will be filmed and used as part of their professional portfolio or as an audition piece. These audition pieces will also be put into our data based to be used for casting in Student Films, Theatre Companies and Professional Films that are shot on location here in Florence . While the workshop is very challenging we also create a nurturing, safe and creatively free environment where actors can experiment and play!
