This course is half acting and half film technique. In the first four sessions, students learn important acting tools based in Seven Pillars Acting, and in the last four sessions they apply those tools to a scene that they will film online using a simple and effective home set up. Students attending will get a introduction into the craft of an actor and practical know-how on acting for the camera... all while online!
This course counts toward advancing the studio's levels. Students who take 2 of these classes, as well as the Beginning Acting Living Truthfully and Reality of Doing classes are eligible to audition for Intermediate.
Seven Pillars Acting by Sonya Cooke is required of all students taking this course. Purchase the book online.

As always, there are no returns or transfers. Tuition reserves your spot in class; all classes fill up, so this is the only way to confirm your spot. Tuition is non-refundable nor transferrable, as class is a commitment to yourself, your scene partner, your instructor and the collective.
