About this course:

Building on the skills learned in Acting for the Camera I, you prepare for work professionally by practicing in all styles that you may audition--features, sitcoms, TV dramas, and commercials. Focusing on the flexibility of the actor in front of the camera, you develop camera techniques in scene study using scripts from TV series, sitcoms, and films. You also learn blocking and continuity with emphasis on master, two-shots, and close-ups. You perform individual and ensemble scenes increasing in complexity in terms of emotion and subtext, and the final project is a three-person scene. The material from the final project is edited and becomes the basis for developing your show reel.
