More details about the course:
THE RAW MATERIAL
Where does theactorend and the role begin? How much of themselves should anactorbring to a role? Ironically, to inhabit another character, it helps to be comfortable in one’s own skin.
STARTING IN THE MIDDLE
It’s said that every character does just that. They had a life before they enter the story, and unless they meet a tragic end, they will have one after. It’s up to us asactorsto create that background. But how do you go about it?
Some of these techniques cross over to the stage, but the way anactorprepares for a film could hardly be more different to theatre: You rehearse alone, there’s no audience and everything is shot out of order. Filmactingalso has some very specific technical demands. With over 30 imdb credits to his name, Scott has picked up on a lot of them.
But don’t expect long lectures. Like his previous workshops for youngeractors, we will learn by doing. Everyone gets to perform. And later, everyone will be able to access a password-protected YouTube channel, so they can watch and learn, by seeing themselves in action.
The weekend will also include an (optional, not included in fee) Saturday evening meal where Scott, a born raconteur, will share some of his experiences on film sets.
Last but not least, Scott will discuss the business end of show business. How can anyone sustain a career in such an over-subscribed and insanely competitive business? Well, as actress Ruth Gordon once said, “it’s not enough to have talent, you must have a talent for having talent”. What does that even mean? Scott thinks he has a good idea, and by the end of our workshop, so will you.
