LAF 308 - Professional Acting for the Camera

Credits: 3
An advanced workshop in the practice and process of acting for the camera aimed at students who have a desire to pursue acting as a career. Instruction includes an overview of current camera acting techniques and thorough discussion of the art of acting.  The class primarily consists of acting scene work with all scenes being filmed and critiqued on the big screen. Students will also be required to pursue roles in student and independent films. Several class sessions throughout the course will be devoted to the business of acting for film and television in the Hollywood entertainment industry with an emphasis given to developing the materials and relationships necessary for a successful career. This course offers two tracks, a professional track and an exploratory track. The professional track is for students hoping to have a professional acting career in Hollywood. It requires students to learn about the business of acting and participate in real auditions and film projects. The exploratory track is for students who don’t necessarily want to act as a career but are interested in learning about acting in order to work with actors or just act part-time.
