On-Camera Acting: “The Self”
“The SELF” in Your Self-Tape
(Formerly offered as “Acting & the Camera: Part Two”, now available to all actors and offered in-tandem with Acting & the Camera!)
Acting is a verb. The audition is an event. As actors, we need to develop ease in front of the camera. The key to this is personalization which requires us to include ourselves while also imagining beyond our own experiences.
You will learn to work in detail, so you can then learn what we must prioritize when it comes time to working efficiently and productively. The amount of time you have to prepare determines the scope of your investigation. The character always begins with “The Self”.
