4 Week On-Camera Scene Study with Blair Baker

Audition or invite only.  Audition or invite only.  This 4 week class is for intermediate actors with strong training who want to work in an intense on-camera scene study environment. It is particularly designed for stage actors with training/experience, who are looking to begin transitioning to Film/TV.  Limited to 8 students, actors will work on 4 challenging scenes/monologues per cycle (a comedy and drama), with a focus on improv, character development, images, and ultimately performing the scenes in a simulated "on set" environment. Actors will be paired up and assigned scenes before class, will learn to make strong choices, and calibrate their acting for the camera, with a focus on subtlety, concentration, and specificity.   This class will prepare actors for working on an actual film set.   All actors receive a video of their work each week for further growth.

Who should take this class?

Blair's On-Camera Scene Study is for pre-professional and professional actors with strong training looking to make the leap into on-camera work. This class is a great place for the trained theatre actor to become comfortable in front of the camera, as well as those who are comfortable with the camera and want to dive further into scene study and how to approach the on-set environment.
