TV Commercials with Improv & Photos
Students perform two solo scripts and learn audition skills. They gain comfort on-camera and learn improvisation; to create characters and they participate in a photo shoot with a professional photographer. Improvisation is a basic acting element, which teaches the art of spontaneous creation in acting. Improvisaton enables students to produce performances without previous thought or preparation and opens up one’s imagination and natural creativity.
Acting for TV Scenes with Improv
Students perform dialogues in scenes and learn intermediate improvisation. Scene study is a primary skill in which actors learn to share stage and develop relationships. A scene is an event or division in a film or a play. The scene evolves by the involvement and relationship of the players. Scene study enhances ones ability to interact with a partner, take cues, learn timing, and build memorization skills.
TV Acting 1includes a photo shoot session to heighten self image and to develop comfort in taking direction from a professional photographer. Talent Agents and TV/Film and Stage Directors often require photos at auditions. At your option, photos may be purchased directly from the photographer: 8"x10": $45.00
