About the Course
In this advanced workshop we will focus on the relationship between actors and directors in the context of live action media production (film, television, advertising, web series). Students will gain practical knowledge of actor-director engagement and insight into both facets of this process. Students will also analyze produced screenplays, practice actor-director communication, and direct and perform for the camera. All students will take turns fulfilling the roles of director and performer, culminating in recording and editing workshopped scenes.
Movement Matters is partnering with this course to explore the similarities and differences in directing for screen and live performance and to see how varied methods for coaching and practicing embodiment inform the disciplines and performance.
