Feature Workshop 4

Close Up Facial Acting and Lip Sync

In the first half of this 11 week workshop we will concentrate on polishing and fine tuning your close up facial acting and lip-sync. We will be working on how we can improve our overall believability and appeal by choosing sincere acting choices. In the second half of the workshop we will try to choose a contrasting shot from part 1 to refine and control our Body Mechanics to help emphasize and not overrule our facial Acting.
