In this course you will:

  • work individually and collectively towards the goal of performing a monologue and a duologue scene to a live audience and to camera
  • learn techniques and exercises rooted in the acting processes of Stanislavski, that influenced the work of our favorite actors
  • bring a script to life, explore your emotions through play and find yourself in the world of the character
  • train with like minded people and attain some tools that you will use forever
  • receive a video copy of your work to learn from and improve (don't worry you'll learn to watch it back without beating yourself up).
