FILM TECHNIQUE WITH MAGGIE KILEY
Discover how a consistent technique helps the actor navigate the ever-changing landscape of acting for the camera.. Class time is split between a focus on script analysis, repetition skills and actual shooting using both film and television scenes. Students are asked to present work under the pressures of a living set; shooting out of sequence, limited direction, limited time and most importantly an active and at times chaotic environment. All scenes are shot and directed by fellow students. Technical aspects of camera work are addressed as are the literal demands of result oriented takes.
August 22 – Oct 10 (Thursdays 6pm to 9pm)
Tuition: $450 – 8 weeks
Registration deadline: August 16th – Limited space available.

Students will rehearse scenes and gain an understanding of how to apply the technique to performance, learn how to play an “action” truthfully and make specific choices based on their script and character. There are no prerequisites for admission to this program.
