Participants are paired up and assigned a scene. Students must watch the film that their scene has been extracted from and memorize their lines, rehearse with their partners in person and present their first work of the scene in our first class. All scenes and information will be emailed to students prior to the first class. Students will have the chance to prepare several scenes and will work with several different partners during the 6-week course. Tara will provide feedback, during or after, each scene. Additional information on script analysis is provided. This is NOT a performance class nor are scenes filmed in this class. This is a Acting for film scene study class. Homework will be mandatory in order for participants to get the most out of the class.
