New York Film Academy Acting for Film

Hands-on Intensive 12-Week Evening Acting for Film Workshop

OVERVIEW

The 12-Week Evening Workshop is the ideal program for individuals who must balance acting with other responsibilities.

Designed for students of all levels, the course meets three evenings per week from 7:00-9:30pm and one Saturday per month in New York City and 7:15 - 9:45pm in Los Angeles.

FORMAT

The Evening Workshop gives students the instruction they need while allowing them to work during the day throughout the workweek. All classes are geared towards providing the building blocks needed to act for film.

Classes emphasize the theory and practice of the basic elements of the acting craft, using Stanislavsky's System and scene work as jumping-off points. In addition to scene work, students participate in classes aimed specifically at training the actor for the requirements of acting on a film set.

Classes encourage students to break down physical and internal inhibitions, and help each student find the most effective personal sources for the creation of truthful characters. Students should be prepared to work in nontraditional acting classes that emphasize the construction and control of character given the unique pressures of a film or television shoot. Video cameras may be used during classes.

Throughout the Evening Workshop, students meet with instructors for one-on-one consultation. Upon the successful completion of the course, students take home a master tape of all their projects and receive a New York Film Academy certificate.

STUDENTS

The Evening Workshop draws together an eclectic group of people from young working professionals to international students to people who are well established in busy careers. Students must be highly motivated in order to balance the workshop requirements with their daytime commitments.

Students who have completed our Twelve-Week Evening Acting for film program may continue their studies with us in an advanced program. They may also apply to our One-Year Conservatory Acting Program. Please contact us for more information.


Course Description

Acting for Film

Students learn the basics of film acting: calibrating performances based upon shot size and angle, eye line, hitting marks, emotional and physical continuity, and strength and imagination in acting choices. Students are assigned scenes from produced screenplays, which are then shot and edited together.

Scene Study

These sessions build a foundation of acting through the execution of a written scene. By working on sections of published plays and screenplays, actors will learn the basic concepts of Scene Study: defining objectives, breaking the scene down into beats, understanding the arc, pursuing the objective, playing actions, and working to overcome obstacles. Students first begin with silent scenes and/or short dialogue scenes. Once the foundation is in place, longer dramatic or comedic scenes are explored.
