About this course:

If directors are the architects of film, then actors are the artisans of a collaborative team working together to realize a singular vision. Through discussions, exercises, casting sessions, and the presentation of scenes, you analyze and apply the directorial skills required for a successful artistic collaboration with performers. You select one dramatic and one comic scene, then cast, rehearse, and present the scenes in class. Topics include analyzing the script, the Method approach to acting, defining objectives, creating dramatic conflict, and the elements of characterization. Actors for class scenes are selected during in-class auditions, and final scenes are performed on camera.
