London, United Kingdom
Becky Sharpe is a film director offering a Screen Acting workshop on Saturdays, starting on 2nd February 2019 to work with a small group of actors to develop their on-camera presence.
The classes run like mini workshops for specific scenes from films, including Becky's latest film script and a monologue. The workshops involve script preparation, character breakdown, discussion, rehearsals and on-camera practice. You will be given filmed sequences to keep for your showreel.
This workshop is ideal for newcomers to the screen to gain confidence on-camera and for experienced actors to deepen their screen presence. Whatever your experience level, this workshop will build on your existing skills and give you something fresh to add to your reel.
The screen acting workshops with Becky are informal and fun, covering different topics, including the important aspects of camera acting, your casting type and stage dynamics with fellow cast members, and we will apply the teaching to specific scenes and character roles.
You will develop your skills in understanding and accepting direction in live filming scenarios as well as self-directing to prepare for the film set. You will progress from monologue work to dualogue scenes, and build your awareness of camera-specific screen presence that can be very impactful (like eyeline work and blocking). You will improve your skills in self-taping and cold reading for auditions.
Whether you are a newcomer to acting, or an experienced professional actor, this is an opportunity to:
• Build your confidence in Screen Acting
• Gain fresh material for your showreel
• Learn how to Self-Tape better
• Improve your Audition Technique
• Work with a director who will energise you
• Get a new insight into your Casting Type
• Develop your technical abilities for camera
