This intermediate level class is an “immersion” experience in the techniques necessary to work in feature film as well as in television dramas and comedies. Students will learn to memorize scripts quickly, relax in front of a camera and “find themselves” in the roles they are playing; three skills necessary for success in feature film and television performance.
