This workshop will provide fundamentals on working with non-professional to experienced actors in both scripted and improvised scenes. It focuses on various methods to encourage the actor to be unselfconscious through focus on the material and immersion in the scene. This workshop will cover: director’s preparation for different stages of your project (casting, rehearsal, shooting); how to communicate your intention effectively to the actors; what actors expect from directors; different approaches to acting and how you use them.

In order to understand what an actor requires from a director, participants will fulfil the roles of both actor and director during the workshop, reversing roles with their fellow participants.
