Instructor: Joe-Norman Shaw
Description: This workshop is an introduction to the film acting process and the concept of “working from within” – the foundation of authentic performance.

The instructor works individually with each actor, assisting them in crafting an authentic performance for the camera. The workshop culminates in a simulated audition, with the instructor taking on the role of casting director. The workshop also includes a discussion of the business of acting and the demands of the professional film audition.
This workshop is ideal for actors making the leap from theatre to film or for actors beginning their journey into the filmic medium.
