ABOUT THIS MODULE

Characters are created before the actors ever step on the set – the performance is created from elaborate backstories, layered subtext, and infused intent in every line. But with all this work, actors can get stuck in their heads and lose the sense of spontaneity when the camera rolls.
 
In this module, you will learn valuable techniques from working Hollywood directors to get to the heart of the actors’ performance, learn rehearsal techniques from developing the character to overcoming mental blocks on the set.
 
In the heat of the moment, the actors will always look to the director for help… make sure you know how to give it.

The videos are a big leap forward for contemporary classroom videos, utilizing clean greenscreen, working professionals and 16:9. The film is well-paced and will be a great addition to classroom instruction. It is designed and constructed in ways both interesting and accessible to student filmmakers. I hope to utilize the material in my classroom!”
