Explore the world of shooting – and what it means for the actor – with Welker White and Damian Young.
Armed with a unique, process-oriented approach to working on-camera, teachers and actors Welker White and Damian Young guide participants through specific steps to building a personal framework for acting on screen.
This intensive will reframe your understanding of the medium as well as bring you to a more authentic and responsive place in your work on-camera.
This 5-day intensive is a deep-dive into the world of cinematic storytelling. Learn how to adapt-and thrive- in the shooting environment. Actors begin by exploring through the use of short-form filmed exercises that unlock specific behavior that reads onscreen, building to fully-shot film scenes.
Actors will come away with a comprehensive experience of the form, and greater access to their own truth.
Actors will receive all takes of their work at the completion of the Intensive.
The 5-DAY INTENSIVE IS:
Understanding how the medium functions in order to allow for more freedom in your work
How the specifics of the shooting process inform acting choices and preparation
Learn to identify universal truths in effective screen acting, and how to apply these discoveries more consistently to your own work
Peel away to reveal where the character lives in you
Building truth and specificity in your work while eliminating amplification and embellishment
Connecting to the deeper meaning beneath the dialogue
The faith to bring all you have, the courage to let it go
DESIGNED FOR ACTORS:
Who have foundational acting training and/or professional theatre and/or film/tv credits
Who are eager to gain a firmer grasp on the shooting process
Who are open to exploration through a process-oriented approach
(ie: although you will receive all takes from shooting, this Intensive does not generate edited scenes designed for reels)
Who are looking to discover more freedom, specificity, and a sense of play, and are eager to find more truth in their work onscreen
