IMPROV TO ACTING CAREER
This class is about taking the tools and skills of improv and translating them to the practical worlds of film and TV acting. Whether on set, at table reads, or at auditions, whether the work is scripted or partially improvised, the skills learned from improv can add major levels to your work. This obnoxiously titled class will include improv exercises, lecture portions, scripted scene-work, career discussions, and probably fun?!
Note: Basic improv experience is recommended. There will be some homework assignments.
Students should have access to a computer and stable, robust internet access, webcam & microphone.
This online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
