NON-ACTING INTENSIVE WORKSHOP IN NYC

 

 

Acting nowadays is full of cliches that makes characters feel forced, unoriginal, and unnatural. Script writers unconsciously create scenes that they have already seen and actors follow with old-styled and contrive expressions and gestures that are learned through the history of theater and film.

 

This workshop is intended to decontaminate professional actors from stereotypes and cliches and introduce aspiring actors to natural and flowing acting.

 

We will compare how actors act and how regular people react in real life situations. We will plan scenes where a real situation will be staged. We will write and rehearse the possible reactions, movements, facial expression, text, etc. Then we will go to the street where we will propose that same situation using regular people that are not aware that they are being filmed. And finally we will compare the natural reactions from people who don’t know they are being filmed with the actor’s ones.

 

The goal is for actors to break their assumptions and learned behaviors and be able to learn from natural reactions that they can incorporate in their work.

 

Participant will learn how to be more fresh and natural in their acting and will leave the workshop with a professional reel of their scene.

WHERE TO SIGN:

Send us an email to info@pressurefilmak.com

In this course we consider the students the same important than the teacher, you will also learn from each other, so we would like to do a brief phone interview before we select you. Believe me, it will be better for the sense of a group. That interview will not be about your experience or about your acting skills.

SPANISH DIRECTOR TO TELL THE STORY OF “OTHER IRAQ”

A serious comedy

A new film by Spanish director Lander Camarero will tell the story of “the other Iraq” – the part of Iraq that has to do with the country’s film industry rather than terrorist bombings – as a comedy.

“Since I believe comedy is not used just for entertainment but also as a way to change, I decided to use it to handle real problems in Iraq,” Camarero said.
