    DAY to DAY BREAKDOWN:

    DAY 1: INTRODUCTION
    Everyone gets to know each other. Then we get started with text analysis to break down scenes and understand what’s happening in a scene and why it’s happening. You’ll then film audition scenes in the afternoon!

    DAY 2: SCENE STUDY
    You’ll take what you learned yesterday and jump into some basic scenes to encourage creativity and character exploration. You’ll work with a scene partner and bring scenes to life through workshop exercises.

    DAY 3: ON-CAMERA AUDITION
    We’ll get you on camera today to work audition and camera techniques. You’ll receive a scene ahead of time to prepare to today’s class. You’ll film, workshop, watch back and film again!

    DAY 4: IN DEPTH SCENE STUDY
    Building on what you learnt on day 2, you workshop previously assigned scenes and bring them to life and present scenes in class. If ready, you’ll filming them!

    DAY 5: FINAL AUDITION
    Today is your final audition day. You’ll present an on camera audition in a real life mock casting session. You’ll be given feedback and re directs form your instructor and film again. Finally, we’ll discuss the business of acting and what steps to take moving forward if acting is something you want to pursue!
