Acting for the Screen: Process

Memorable acting is layered and specific. The more complex our work, the more human our portrayal.

The second block explores the layers of truth that lie within a character, within the script, and the world in which they exist. We learn to inhibit the impulse to “act at a script” and “swing wildly” at its’ meaning. We substitute a reliable process which delves deeply into the inner world of the words through Sense Memory, and creative imagination.

By incorporating  the emotion and essence work of the Preparation class into our process of exploration before the camera rolls, we begin to reshape our performance into a dimensional, human and original portrayal.  Television and film is close-up acting.  Here, we begin to fill the soul of the actor.
