OCT 6 – SPECIFICITY: CREATING MOMENTS THAT BOOK WORK – AFI

SPECIFICITY – CREATING MOMENTS THAT BOOK WORK

Saturday, October 6

11 noon – 2:00 pm

Mark Goodson Screening Room (MGSR), American Film Institute, Hollywood

Limit 136 students (not all will work)

We often try to be unique and creative as actors, but the most effective way to book work is by accessing our authenticity and creating full, memorable moments one after the other. This workshop, taught by Michael D. Cohen, will invite advanced-level actors to work at the front of the room to hone their specificity in scene work and auditions. Beginner/intermediate level members are encouraged to attend and observe. 

Open to members of the SAG-AFTRA Conservatory

 

NOVEMBER 1ST – SIX WEEK TV COMEDY CLASS BEGINS

You will learn and hone:

  • The secret to comedic timing
  • Physical comedy
  • Stillness in comedy
  • Multi-cam vs. single cam
  • Text analysis for comedy
  • Creating a character organically

The class is structured so that two hours will be spent putting up scenes (everybody gets up to work at least once per class), and one hour will be focused on innovative exercises designed to hone your comedic skills.  i.e. Analyzing text from prime time comedy scripts and then viewing the shows in class.
