Acting for the Camera: Film, Theater and Television in the Age of Zoom
Winter 2022
Section: 01  

This studio course will explore the fundamentals of acting for the camera. A wide range of exercises and techniques will be used to cultivate a sense of ease and freedom and to develop the imagination, relaxation, concentration, focus and technical skills required to create life in front of the camera. The course will explore both film and television, and include auditioning and current industry film/tv practices, as well as how to navigate ZOOM and other online platforms in professional readings, workshops, livestreams, and auditions. By the end of the course, students will have honed techniques enabling them to bring their full selves to the camera with confidence and a lack of self-consciousness, and be familiar with self-tapes, auditioning, and current industry practices and protocols in the film/tv/theater industry.
