The Ultimate Character Immersion Workshop
July 27-28-29 2018
The 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp guides you through many phases of creating and playing a role. You’re given a series of homework assignments, a challenging inspiring introduction to the weekend at the orientation then a marathon of evocative exercises in class on day one. This culminates into day two with your role being professionally videoed and you getting a compelling scene for your demo reel.
ORIENTATION SESSIONFriday - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
We cover all aspects of the Milne Studio training system. We will overview the journey you’ll take and make plans to ensure a productive outcome for all.
TRAINING DAY 1Saturday – 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
A comprehensive and in-depth investigation into Milne’s technique, PERGE; helping you effectively breakdown scripts, giving you stronger role prep and improved audition skills. We'll apply precise interpretive steps adding dimension to your roles.
You’ll engage in breathing, energy, voice, movement, interpersonal connection, improvisation, storytelling, monologues, scene study and performance exercises. By the end of the day you’ll be immersed in character and ready to play the role, with residue of the day’s work present until the next morning. Applying best practices greatly improves both acting and performance ability.
TRAINING DAY 2Sunday – 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM
The Set – The day starts with a brief warm up (foundation and interpretation exercises) and discussion about pacing through a shoot day. Learning to connect and reconnect with your role is essential. In character and ready to play the role you’ll move into our on-camera environment. While directors love it when actors hit it on the first take, we’re often called upon to repeat a scene or parts of a scene several times for coverage. Actors have to be ready.
The Performance – Time to step into the ring. Like any sport or engagement, proper preparation is critical to your success. The same applies in acting: we must precisely prepare for the part, make the focus of the work the back, front, top, bottom and all the sides of the role, then trust that we can let the prep go and live in the present, breathing quietly in our bodies on screen. Your performance will be professionally shot then mastered and delivered to you via Vimeo.
