Television and Film Acting

Single Semester Course

This class is designed to introduce the actor to the challenges of film, television, and voiceover acting, with an additional focus on 21st century tools. This is a hands-on, lecture-light, activity-heavy experience. Students will focus on learning the filmmaking process and the actor’s role in it; re-imagining stage performance techniques for camera as well as using the elements of the filmmaking process to craft successful performances for the screen. We will use a variety of television, movie, and animated production scripts in order to learn a broad range of skills.

Prerequisite: Intro to Theater, Drama and Performance, or comparable experience.
