In this class we’ll work on a practical approach to finding your voice (something often overlooked by actors) followed by scripted scenes on camera.

   Saturday 11th MAY – Glynne Steele: Daring Improv and Character Choices

You’ll work with some fascinating improv tools, make fresh, daring character choices and push your boundaries – an exciting and energising class, not for the nervous! You’ll be cast with a different scene partner this week.

           Saturday 18th MAY – Peter Salter: Further Camera Technique (on camera)

Paying attention to the subtext of the scene, we’ll do a series of relaxation exercises to prep for filming, then film the scenes and play them back with critique.

                Saturday 25th MAY –  Daniel Dresner: Further developing your on-screen craft (on camera)

You’ll work on pre-learnt scripts and really get behind the actors’ and the characters’ thought process. We’ll finish with a 60-90 minute ‘actors’ business planning’ session.
