TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
At this time, ALL CLASSES ARE ONLINE, until BC’s Public Health Officer recommends that schools be allowed back in session.
Film+TV Scene Study
Audition or Invitation Only
Spring Classes: April to June
w. Leanne Lapp and Michael Bean
Students in the On-Camera Scene Study classes are expected to be 100% memorized, to have a clear understanding of story and character, to listen and react believably, to be able to give a naturalistic/believable performance, and be able to take direction (i.e. alter some aspect of the performance if asked to do so).
Each class is two hours of on-camera exercises, audition practice and scene study, led by Biz Studio Founder and Head Coach Michael Bean and Biz Coach Leanne Lapp. Students are assigned an appropriate-to-their-age-and-experience script for each class, and expected to be ready to workshop that scene on camera and receive coaching and support. Classwork is recorded and uploaded to a private video page on our website. See our FAQ for more info.
NEW: Rehearsal Coaches. Before each class each student will have access to a 30min private coaching session with one of these experienced young actors who can help with techniques for memorizing lines, making clear choices about story, camera technique, audition prep, and more. We’re excited to see how fast students can level-up with this extra support.
ACCESSIBILITY: A limited number of partial bursaries of $95/4 weeks are available for each class. Spots are first come first serve, just choose the “Bursary” option from the drop-down menu (please register at the regular price if you can 💛).
