Something you've never seen before!
Have you ever wondered what it was like to see yourself on the silver screen? They say the camera never lies. Here is where you will learn all of its truth. We are taking your on-camera experience to a whole other level.
You will be learning to explore and master your techniques by working on a massive 16 x 9 foot movie screen and two live cameras! No other acting classes in Los Angeles have this incredible feature. Take the leap.
How we do things...
Two live cameras. Either single shot or split screen.
Projected on a 16x9 foot movie screen. With a high tech audio system for real time playback.
Almost every class will film your performances.
The footage is uploaded and you will receive a link each week.
All building up to an original Short Film script that is shot in the final week.
What Should I Expect?
THE VERY FIRST CLASS.
YOU ARE REQUIRED TO BRING YOUR OWN MONOLOGUE TO PERFORM!
A half page or less. Choose something age appropriate and that also speaks to you.
Something you believe you could've been cast in! You will get to work one-on-one with your Director to find the nuances, subtext and the truth in your performance.
We highly recommend that you stay away from any blockbuster or iconic scenes!
There are also plenty of places online to download monologues free of charge that suit you. Put in the work.
Then the next 7 weeks will follow our personalized curriculum as you see yourself come to life on the big screen and two live cameras. Just like on set, actors are also given small lavalier microphones to wear on your lapels to record your audio.
We will provide all of the script content for you. You will then start being paired up with fellow actors to explore your emotional range and connection to the characters while learning to listen along with every technique under the sun to get you there!
By week 6 (for the Shorts class only) an original Short Film script is introduced and rehearsed and workshopped to the final class where you will be on set filming the movie! Cameras/Lights/Crew/Makeup/Action!
