Spring 2018 not offered
Working with actors is an essential component of cinema and television. This workshop course leads students through the analysis of screen performance, introduces the craft of staging dramatic scenes for single-camera shooting, and offers a practicum on working with actors to shape performance for the camera. It will center on how to work with actors so that the dramatic function of a scene is fulfilled. The course's guiding questions are: How does the scene function in the story? How do you cast it? What point does the scene need to make? How do you speak with an actor in terms they can play so that the essence of the scene is successfully conveyed?
