Technical Training for Actors

Once you've got the part, you need to know the technical aspects of being an actor so that you will be cast AGAIN!

This two-part class will teach you:

  • Making each take editable while keeping it organic

  • The continuity process and how an actor can make or break an edit

  • Taking a director's adjustments

  • Knowing "where the light is"

  • Camera awareness

  • Hitting the mark

  • Getting the best audio

  • ADR

  • Set etiquette to avoid looking like a newbie!

This will be a PRACTICAL class and not just theory.

You will be doing scenes and getting tutorials from a director and an editor.
