There are some actors that the camera seems to immediately love – an actor’s natural qualities translate into an awesome performance. Master teacher Denise Simon has developed techniques to help actors create that on-camera performance. Her method is based on teaching students to direct themselves. Scene analysis, character development, improvisation and the technical subtleties of working on-camera are communicated by Denise in ways that performers understand and can remember. Denise gives her students the tools to create that awesome on- camera performance not only in her workshop, but again and again as they independently master new material. Her program features:
Accessing authenticity – Exercises and improvisation capture the emotional life of a scene! Moment before – The character as he enters the scene! Emotional climax – Scene analysis as an emotional map! Stage to film – Confined space and subtle changes!
Students will work with actual material from tv and film.This workshop is great for the stage actor looking to transition to tv and film and is geared towards actors who have some experience and/or training.
This workshop will include a Q&A session with Denise.
