Acting for Directors

Studio, 3 Credit Hours

By learning how and why actors do what they do, directors can better communicate their vision. Students study basic acting technique and work through a series of exercises that culminate in the performance of scenes and monologues. This course focuses on understanding truthfulness in performance as well as the steps to creating believable characterizations. Students improve their imagination, increase their instincts for honest interaction, and develop a useful vocabulary for communicating with actors.
