4 week TV AND FILM ACTING 2 with Van Hansis
An ADVANCED on-camera class for actors with really strong training who want to enhance their technique for film and tv. This class is designed to help actors keep their abilities and approach to TV and Film work connected to both the text and their authentic self, and to find truth and confidence in front of the camera. By deepening the conversation between the script analysis and the understanding of type, tone and style this class will allow the actor to stretch in both type and range, while also working with the camera to calibrate their acting for focus and subtlety. By exploring tv scripts, proceduaral, single camera, multi camera and feature films we will work in class to develop a baseline of practical analysis to help the actor develop a toolbox of skills to return to every time text needs to be mined for subtext and contextual clues to support character. By practicing this approach week to week, the goal is to assist the actor in being self-sustaining on set, in rehearsal and centered in auditions. There are no rehearsals outside of class, new scripts each week, and actors are expected to be off-book for every class. All actors receive a video of their work each week for further review. Class is limited to 10 actors.
