ACTING FOR FILM WORKSHOP
NYFA Acting for Film instructor Cesar Gracia will teach you how to build scenes off the top of your head. Improv is one of the central skills in all acting, from stage to film and especially auditions. Improvisation gives you the confidence you need to walk into an audition, and helps you expand your imagination.

Improv also gives actors the flexibility they need in order to be directed. In Acting for Film, you will be shown the basics of how to be natural in front of the camera, explore some simple techniques, and investigate what the ultimate goal is for you on a film set.

About Cesar Gracia
Cesar Gracia studied long form improv and sketch writing at the UCB Theater in NYC as well as Second City. Has appeared in several commercials and in 2008 appeared in a comedy short he co-wrote that aired on Comedy Central's Atom Tv.

Cesar also stepped behind the camera as a cinematographer for Short Steps, a short film which premiered at the Soho Film Festival in 2014. Prior to that he worked as a camera assistant for the Spanish network Univision. He also appeared in the movie Chatue Vato alongside Paul Rodriguez which can be seen on HBO Max.
