Acting for the Camera

This on-camera course focuses on film and television scripts and specific tools used in the medium. This hands-on workshop highlights quick and powerful ways to make your performance more natural and spontaneous. Develop an awareness of the special needs of the camera and focus on your ability to be free in front of it. Work on new scenes with new scene partners every week in front of the camera, watching play back constantly for supportive and helpful feedback. Learn the importance of technique, remove self-conscious behavior, and use yourself to fill a character. Taught by John Jacobsen, Emmy award winning director.
