ACTING IN FILM: CAMERA CLOSE-UP & THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE (3-day intensive)

Friday, May 18, 2018 – Sunday, May 20, 2018

10:00am – 6:00pm

Teachers
Jean-Louis Rodrigue & Kristof Konrad

Workshop Description
An actor’s vision is lived emotionally and physically. That kind of performance requires more than instinct – it needs interpretative intelligence and a mastery of physical, psychological, and emotional craft into performance. Internationally acclaimed teachers Jean-Louis Rodrigue and Kristof Konrad team up to present an intensive workshop to explore the skills and tools that are required for the extraordinary creation of characters and performances in film.

Workshop Content


  • Stage acting vs. film acting

  • Becoming vs. performing

  • Be in and listen with your whole body

  • Trust that you are enough

  • Learn that you are more than your habits

  • Free your movement by learning to organize body relationships

  • Release impulse and response patterns; allowing spontaneity
