Feature Workshop 5

Full Body Acting, Facial & Lip-Sync

In the first half of this 11 week workshop we will now refine our full body acting and lip-sync to make our acting read while choosing full body gestures that supports the characters emotional state. In the second half of the workshop we will be picking an audio clip that will contrast part 1 to further refine and polish our Body Mechanics so that they support the character's facial performance.

11 week access to:

  • Live & Recorded Classes
