THST 443 - Acting for Film I

For acting students who want to gain advanced knowledge and experience in acting for film and television. The primary goal of the class is to bring out each actor’s natural talent, which is often the most “marketable” in the film and television industry. Each actor works on a monologue or scene — chosen in consultation with the instructor — to make his/her work in front of a camera compelling, secure, and believable. Special video sessions give each participant a valuable, hands-on experience in acting for the camera. The actors are also able to see and evaluate each other’s film work during a special screening session at the end of the course. The actors use excerpts from their monologue/scene for a “video audition” commonly required by today’s Casting Directors, Actor’s Agents, and Film/TV Directors. Formerly TH 400A
