4 week TV AND FILM ACTING 1 with Blair Baker
This is an intermediate on-camera class for actors with STRONG theatre training (MFA, Broadway, 2 year programs, etc.) who are transitioning to a career in film and TV. Actors will work with different TV/film scripts each week (comedy, drama) to develop focus and concentration in front of the camera, while also working on relaxation, connection, improvisation, and bringing truth to the script to life in a small, challenging on-camera environment. Actors will learn what it's like to work on set (closeups, marks), with a focus on calibrating their acting for the camera, bringing a character to life, with no outside rehearsal, and minimal prep time. The focus on this class will be to help actors relax and connect to the material, so they can be free to give their best, most nuanced performance on tv and film. All actors receive a video of their work each week for further learning. BY AUDITION ONLY.
Prerequisite: Audition for Matt, strong theatre training (broadway, mfa, etc.)
