Introduction

We have been offering ONLINE 1:1 acting training quite often over the past few months due to the current situation. Since individual training is more intensive than group classes, it is important to assess what the student wants to achieve, in order to get a real and visible improvement in a short time. The 60-minute ONLINE acting coaching sessions can be tailored to your specific needs after a short assessment, but it’s important we identify the area of acting that you want to work on at the moment by selecting a Program.

Online 1:1 Acting training. Program 1: Basic acting training

PROGRAM 1: BASIC ACTING TRAINING

WHO IS IT FOR? This Program is for BEGINNERS and NEWCOMERS.

As a beginner actor there are many aspects to cover, and the first thing to do is to evaluate your starting point and your natural qualities. The sessions are focused on practicing dialogues with the trainer as well as short monologues, working on basic aspects of expression, emotion, pacing. We’ll explore different ways of communicating and behaving and we’ll address the most common beginner’s mistakes in order to improve.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: You’ll learn how to perform scripted dialogues and short monologues in a realistic and organic way. You’ll learn the basics of acting, you’ll learn how to speak clearly and you’ll learn how to work on your natural personality in order to expand your acting range and improve.

DURATION: 4 individual online sessions of 60 minutes over Skype or Zoom.

Online 1:1 Acting training. Program 2: Camera acting training

PROGRAM 2: CAMERA ACTING TRAINING

WHO IS IT FOR? BEGINNERS and ADVANCED ACT*RS.

In this program we’ll explore different aspects of camera acting. The focus will be to make you able to produce a strong and convincing performance in front of the camera in the shortest possible time.

If you’re a complete beginner, we’ll address how to behave naturally when filmed, as well as some basic acting concepts (reactions, listening, realistic acting).
If you already have some acting background, we’ll transfer your knowledge to the “language” of the camera in order to adjust and tone your reactions and your performance, with particular attention to your expression and your ways of reacting and expressing emotions. This Program focuses on many technical aspects: working on your angles, on your facial expressions, on your peculiarities as an actor, and how to optimize your interaction with the camera.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: At the end of this Program, you’ll be a stronger performer in front of the camera, and you’ll know what to do in order to get the best performance when you record monologues for the camera or go to film auditions. If you’re a theatre actor already, you’ll know how to change and shape your performance when you work with the camera.

DURATION: 4 individual online sessions of 60 minutes over Skype or Zoom. Communication and assignments in between sessions.

Online 1:1 Acting training. Program 3: Camera acting for reels

PROGRAM 3: CAMERA ACTING FOR REELS

WHO IS IT FOR? ALL CAMERA ACTORS planning to film an Acting Reel for auditions. Some previous basic acting experience recommended.

If you have some experience and you’re are planning on filming your own acting reel in the future, or you need to produce an audition tape and you need guidance about specific aspects of camera acting, this one’s for you. You can choose to work mainly on your roles and scripts, or we can suggest and provide additional material. We’ll evaluate and comment on clips recorded by you in between sessions or in the past. At the sessions we’ll address both acting topics (speech clarity, rhythm, character aspects, style of performance), as well as camera-specific topics (effective movement, working your angles, eye movements), so you’ll have all the tools to make a strong impression in your acting reel.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: You’ll learn how to translate your previous experiences to camera acting and you’ll learn how to judge your performances objectively. You’ll become aware of the most common mistakes in acting reels and you’ll learn strategies to avoid them. You’ll also learn how to pick roles that are “right” for you when it comes to an acting reel.

DURATION: 4 individual online sessions of 60 minutes over Skype or Zoom. Communication and assignments in between sessions.
