Acting Class for Film — the Essentials

Mark Stolzenberg,filming an acting class These acting classes teach the student how to act for the camera — film and television. All classes are on camera and you review your work on a TV monitor at the end of each class.

The classes are intimate, 6-12 people, so if there is anything in particular that you want to work on, your teacher can give you personal help. All levels accepted.

You will work on Eye Line (where to look), how to project your voice, emotions, and physicality. We stress believability and vulnerability and have many tricks of the trade to share. We spend time working on close-ups. We do monologues, improvisations, cold readings, audition technique, commercials, and some scene work-most of the material is from movies. We teach "acting technique" with an eclectic approach. All the work is geared to making you look most effective on screen.

After two terms of Essential Acting classes, you will be eligible to enroll in the Advanced class and to have your work screened in a theatre for casting directors, agents, managers, etc.

You can email some of our students from last term for recommendations. Students love the class. Some students continue with us for years.
