PAFT 212 Acting For Film and Television IV Single and Multi-Camera Work

This course focuses on filming in both a single and multi-camera studio in different on-set work situations. Actors are taught how to deal with multiple cameras and maintain the quality of their work. Actors are assigned scenes at the start of class, learning them quickly and filming them, utilizing their instincts and experience, without over-analysis. The result is a positive impact on the actor's cold­ reading/audition skills and confidence in performance for the "no-acting" style demanded for film and television. Increasingly complex material is used to tell the story and create subtext emphasizing subtlety and nuance. Work will be taped for in-class critique.
