Make the Camera Your Scene Partner
with Holly Cinnamon
class completed: look for more in the Fall
As a film and TV actor, the lens determines how you are seen by the audience. You are working within a completely different framework than on stage or in a theatre audition.
Do you know how to work within the frame and make the camera your scene partner to draw the audience into each moment of your character’s journey?
Do you know how to use your attention and your thinking and your body to tell the story within the frame?
Do you know how the camera sees you?
In this class, we will apply AT tools directly to on-camera work. You will discover resources in the audition room and on set that can support your on-camera acting, expand your presence and clarify your focus, so the camera is drawn to you. We will work on audition sides and watch playback during class so you can see how the tools we apply can transform what the audience sees on screen. The class will leave you with simple, concrete tools and practices that you can incorporate into your on-camera work immediately.
