Weekly Acting Class NOV 15 - DEC 13
How to Act in Technically Demanding Scenes
With writer, director, producer, Lance Dreesen
This 5 week class is every Tuesday starting NOV 15 and open to all actors 16 and older.
Time 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
At The Goat Farm Arts Center.
It's impossible to hone advanced acting-for-camera technique without performing a scene with all the technical demands of the craft -- but it's difficult for actors to practice in such an environment, short of hiring their own film crew. This is the ONLY acting workshop in Atlanta that gives you the ability to advance your craft in an environment as close to being on-set as you can get -- with an internationally award winning film director as your instructor.
This five-week session will focus on how to give a believable, compelling performance in technically demanding scenes, such as those involving complex blocking, working with new production technology (GoPro cameras, etc), on-set FX (rain, wind, etc.), as well as performing with non-existent creatures or objects (added in post-production) in front of a green screen – or all of the above at the same time!
A substantial portion of TV and films today* contain such scenes, and actors must know how to stay focused and react in an emotionally believable manner while doing so. What may look thrilling and fun on screen can be hard to achieve in the start-stop high-pressure world of on-camera acting. This workshop will explore the various techniques necessary to maintain focus and create a great performance, while also meeting the technical demands of the scene – whether it’s from a sci-fi, horror, fantasy, thriller, super-natural or action film or TV show.
The workshop includes in-class exercises, as well as a scene assignment with challenging acting and technical elements. Workshop participants work closely with instructor Lance Dreesen to develop the scene and ultimately shoot it in a "real-life" scenario -- complete with lights, camera, microphones and technical FX.
