The Coterie Theatre is not a movie studio, but the actors who work on the Coterie stage also do commercials, industrial/corporate films, television series, and feature films. Learn to transfer your acting skills to the screen. We’ll look at commercial and film “copy,” acting, taking direction, audition skills and techniques on how to work with the camera. Students will also get a chance to create and write (or maybe even film) their own movie shorts!
This class offers an opportunity for consideration in The Coterie’s Acting Master class.
