FROM CLASS TO CAMERA - AN ON-CAMERA ACTING WORKSHOP
You’ve worked your craft in class. You’ve practiced in workshops. Now it’s time to…
Get UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL…Get Camera Competent
Take your work in class and put it on screen…study your work close up and see how it translates to camera. Look for the nervous blocks, the subtle check out habits, and see them blow up on the screen.
DAY 1: CAMERA SEMINAR
LEARN CAMERA ESSENTIALS: camera terms, playing the lens, adjusting for shots, continuity, rehearsals, hitting marks, tempo, dynamics, off camera acting, steady cam versus dolly versus sticks, dialogue changes, lead versus supporting approach, the edit, maintaining arc in out-of-sequence shooting, multiple takes…and more.
PRACTICE ON CAMERA: run short scenes with camera. Explore blocking and challenges of different on set scenarios: two handers, multiple-character scenes, walk-and-talks, steady cam, active and static scenes, set and location.
WORK OUT HABITS ON CAMERA…get INSTANT FEEDBACK from the screen.
DAY 2: CAMERA WORKOUT
REHEARSE THE SCENE FOR CAMERA: actors scenes can be cast in advance with a new partner…or be a re-working of a scene from class (LEVELS I, II, or III) with original class scene partners. Actors will prepare individual scene analysis. In rehearsal, actors finalize their preliminary approach to blocking and “what they will bring to the set”.
FILMING THE SCENE: Actors take turns acting each prepared scene, from first team rehearsal to cut. Actors not acting in scene act as crew. Explore different camera scenarios and set surprises.
PLAYBACK: study the scene for class and get instant feedback.
GET CONFIDENT. GET COMPETENT. GET CAMERA-READY!
