Acting on Screen and Character Mining
Sometimes you need to take a good look at how your emotions communicate on camera. Just because you as an actor ‘feel it’, doesn’t always mean the camera, or the audience, can see it.
One to one training sessions help you to work on your on-camera techniques under the guidance of a straight-shooting award winning director.
These sessions work in three main areas:
1). Overcome ‘nerves’ associated with being on-camera, in a safe and supportive environment.
2). Translating emotions – Learning to work with the camera and understand the different emotional calibrations required. This will help you to translate your emotions effectively for camera.
3). Building characters – Character mining takes time, and attention to detail. These sessions will help you to dig for traits, big and small, that will breathe extra life into your on-screen characters.
4). Camera technique – Learn about how the filming process works so you can hone your technique, so the viewers eye will be drawn to your performance.
We’ll ensure you learn what you need to know, as well as discussing the hidden sides of being on a film or TV set, set etiquette, filming slang and the filming hierarchy. All this will help you prepare more fully for castings and make you more professional on set.
All the footage we shoot will be available for you to study later, so you can keep on learning and improving.
The Telsen Studio is a comfortable and relaxing space based in Birmingham. The space has been used by fledgling actors and professionals alike, for self tapes and filming sessions. Importantly, the studio has everything you need to experience being ‘on set’. This one to one practice will get you over any nerves you have about being on-camera, and help you to master the subtle art of acting on screen.
