About this event

---Instructor: Mike J. Baker, Jr.---This class is an introduction to film and television acting. Each week you will learn one or more aspects/techniques of acting for film and television. The eight-week class will encompass a whole range of techniques to include crossing camera, letting scenes breathe, pre-beat, specificity, spontaneity, listening, behavior, containment, and the intuitive response. Mike will also employ Harold Guskin’s technique of “Taking it Off the Page” to ground you in the realism needed for film and television – your real self. Each student will perfect at least three movie scenes and three movie monologues. Since just the classes themselves are on Zoom, Mike will record them and share with the class each week so you can track your progress. At the end of the 8 weeks, your selected scene and monologue will be professionally lit and taped with two cameras at an Old Town Alexandria location; either the Atrium or Gadsby’s Tavern. You will be provided a flash drive with high resolution files for use on your website or You Tube. Mike will also give you a two-minute sizzle reel taken from your monologue and scene to upload to casting directors who want to see two-minutes of your work. With the increasing demand for video reels, you will be in the forefront. The class may also feature a trip on Saturday December 4th to Actors Connection in New York for a Master Class with a prominent Casting Director. Covid-19 permitting. (This all day trip is not included in the cost of the class.) Fridays 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. 8 classes online & final scenes and monologues taped on location Sunday, December 19 from noon-5pm. No class Thanksgiving weekend November 26. Read instructor's bio online at www.thelittletheatre.com.
