This course for beginning and experienced actors is devoted to the particular art of acting for the camera: how to relate to the lens, blocking and movement, important differences between film acting and stage acting, film audition techniques, working with sides and copy, and tricks of the trade that can help actors be more believable and interesting on screen. The course considers the demands of serious film roles, commercials, monologues, and scene study. Students work in front of the camera and can immediately review their own performances.
