ACTING FOR THE CAMERA

How To Act Professionally On Film & TV
A 6 Week Course

Taught By Louis Di Bianco

COURSE IN A NUTSHELL
There's an urgent need for strong courses that teach people how to act in front of a camera. No nonsense courses that demonstrarte -- clearly, quickly, powerfully -- the acting techniques that make a scene come alive when a director calls, "Action!"

My 6 week workshop on ACTING FOR THE CAMERA is that kind of course. It gives students a clear awareness of their screen image. It teaches them what works and what doesn't in front of the camera. It clarifies the misunderstood notion of "making it small" for the camera. It gives actors the knowledge and confidence to always perform well at professional auditions.

COURSE TOPICS
Week 1: What is my screen image? What qualities do I project to the camera? How do I behave when the camera starts to roll?

Week 2: Action or Reaction? Listening - Thinking - Reacting silently on film.

Week 3: Cold Reading: How to identify the 3 types of scenes. How to be alive for the camera with a script in your hand.

Week 4: Auditions: Making strong choices. Reacting to a "dead" Reader.

Week 5: Scenes: Preparing a scene from current episodic TV shows & feature films.

Week 6: Final Scene Presentation.
