Acting & The Camera

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL: Letting the camera see your inner self.

Significant screen acting happens in the close-up. The camera sees into your soul therefore the audience does, too. It sees everything and demands the truth. It takes courage to face the challenge of the close-up, but the close-up is where the actor earns their money.

A key element that must never be forgotten is that great acting starts with “being”. Being fully present and living authentically in your own life will allow you to make the “actor’s leap” into the given circumstances of the script and live authentically in that fictional world.

In this class:
– Submit self-tape exercises, rework in class

– Tackle emotionally charged sides & personalize the material

– Access your emotional empathy & vulnerability on-camera & in close-up

– Find new courage in facing the challenges of working in close up & on self-tape
