This is your chance to move from one side of the camera to the other... and figure out what exactly you're asking your actors to do! Deepen your understanding of the complexities of the acting process through a fun, hands-on class for non-actors. In a safe and non-judgemental space, find out more about how actors approach a script, the process they use to prepare for a film, and how they craft a performance on camera. Learn more about the vocabulary of acting and concepts like: beats, objectives, motivation, subtext, tactics and more. Understand and use these ideas and techniques yourself as a screenwriter or director. The class will use acting exercises, improvisation, monologues and two-person scenes provided by Mieko Ouchi to explore the craft of performance from the writer/director perspective. Participants are not required to have any previous acting experience, just a positive attitude and the courage to jump in.
Your enrollment in any class is not guaranteed until payment is received. Classes must be paid for at least one week before the first class. You may cancel your enrollment in a class one week before the first class without charge. Cancellations made less than a week before the first class will be refunded the full amount less a $50 cancellation fee.

There will be no reimbursements after the third class. All classes are subject to cancellation if there are insufficient registered participants. We will notify you regarding cancellation at least on week before the first class. If we cancel the class, you are entitled to a full refund or you may transfer to another scheduled class, space permitting.
