About this event

--Instructor: Mike Baker, Jr.-- This class is an introduction to film and television acting. Each week you will learn one or more aspects/techniques of acting for film and television. The eight-week class will encompass a range of techniques, including crossing camera, letting scenes breathe, pre-beat, specificity, spontaneity, listening, behavior, containment, and intuitive response. Mike will also employ Harold Guskin’s technique of “Taking it Off the Page” to ground you in the realism needed for film and television – your real self. Each student will perfect at least three movie scenes and three movie monologues. Each week you will receive a tape, sent in Drop Box, of the work done in class so that you can track your progress. At the end of the 8 weeks, your selected scene and monologue will be professionally lit and taped at LTA. Green screens will be used to simulate on-location backgrounds. You will be provided a flash drive with high-resolution files for use on your website or YouTube channel. With the increasing demand for video reels, you will be at the forefront. The class may also feature an optional Zoom Master Class with prominent Casting Director, Brett Goldstein. This would not be included in the LTA class cost. (The record date for scenes and monologues is Sunday, June 2 from 6:00 pm-9:30 pm)
