The Scene Study class is for experienced performers and working actors looking for a more intense and focused training environment. The goal is to assist the actor in taking charge of their artistic practice and their career, and to offer practice material, exercises and support to help increase on-camera skills, build confidence, expand emotional availability, and grow artistic depth and range. Participation is by invitation or audition only. To arrange a 15min video audition Contact Us.

SATURDAYS 3:00-5:00 w. Michael Bean

DETAILS: Classes are held on Zoom, with a maximum of six students per class. Each class is two hours of on-camera exercises, audition practice and scene study. Classwork is recorded and shared weekly. Students are assigned a film+tv audition script to prepare for each class.

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).

PRIVATE COACHING : As part of class, each student gets a 30min private session with one of our rehearsal coaches each week. We just started offering these a few months ago and it’s making a huge difference for students.

ACCESSIBILITY: One discounted “bursary” space is available in each class. Contact Us for details.

REGISTRATION: New students should fill out the Registration Form, then click on the link below to set up monthly payments via PayPal (3 x 4weeks; Jan-Mar). After we receive confirmation of registration, students will be emailed with their start date and Zoom link.
