THE ACTING DEPARTMENT is a laboratory for dedicated, mature actors who are committed to artistic quality, professional achievement, and sustaining longevity as an on-camera performer. The lab will consist of 8-12 participants per course.
Each participant must comply with the following:
Attendance for the duration of the 8-week program, one class per week. Weeks 1-4 (Part1) will involve acting with a scene partner. Weeks 5-8 (Part 2) will be dedicated to on-camera audition with video playback and critique.
For Part 1, participants must commit 90 minutes of rehearsal or more for scene work in the days preceding class.
For Part 2, each participant will have 1 or 2 scene possibilities from film, TV, stage play or audition sides for on-camera work. A brief synopsis of the work from which the scene is taken will be included. Each scene will have two characters and runs no longer than 6 minutes. Ron will make the final choice on material.
Professional standards of punctuality are to be observed.
In the unavoidable event of a scene partner's absence, participants must be prepared with a 2-minute monologue or a scene for an initial read.
Discourteous, disrespectful, or abusive language and behavior will not be tolerated.
Payments may be made in full in Week 1 or in two installments in Weeks 1 and 5.
