STUDIO ONE - 4 South Terrace, Cork
DIRECTORS CLASS is our newest course at ActorsVision, and our only course created for current and future film makers with a passion for Directing. The 10 week term guides students through the fundamentals of directing actors for technical and creative performance on screen. It specifically hones in on the art of acting, and how to translate the scene you see in your mind into a reality, on set.
"Actors are not technical pieces of equipment. They are living beings that need to be directed through a language that fuels and energises their senses, utilising the imagination as the gateway. The best directors are those who have learned a process that allows the coaxing of their actors to truly powerful performances, within any given medium."
*The Art of Acting - Learning about acting technique, so you can speak the actors 'language' when directing.
*Angles vs Performance - Understanding how to guide the actor from Wide shot through to Close Up.
*'Blocking' & 'Business' - Vital knowledge and skills when directing movement and use of props in a scene.
*Film Set Essentials - From Casting to Performance; what the actor needs from you.
*Equipment and the actor - Tripods, tracks, jibs, steadicams, etc, and how each affects artistic performance.
*Emergency Toolkit - Learn how to handle a scene, performance or actor when it's 'just not working'.
