Our ACTING FOR THE CAMERA Lab is a four week workshop, where each actor will work a scene with a scene partner, and focus specifically on the scene for the entire lab. Each team will work their scene with director Michael Bond, explore blocking and scene development and then the scenes will be filmed. Actors are encouraged to stretch and experiment, try and try again, explore and investigate character and story in a safe and supportive environment.
ACTING FOR THE CAMERA Lab will focus on different techniques, developing actor relationships, approaches to working with the camera, and understanding basic filmic language, ultimately informing your on set experiences.
