Demystify the process of working with actors with this practical, craft-based approach. Taught by Brad Barnes, this four-hour class will teach you how to get consistently fresh, natural performances while simultaneously realizing the directorial vision for your film.
This is a standalone class. A follow-up class on March 12 will include practical sessions with working actors (requires a separate registration). Pt. 1 registrants will have the opportunity to register for Pt. 2 before the event is made available here at filmindependent.org on February 18.
