Script Analysis for Film & TV explores how to apply your extensive Two-Year Conservatory training to the needs of the on-camera medium. Every style and genre demand ownership of text. Creating character, understanding relationship, circumstance and stakes are essential building blocks to create a versatile performance. In order to be in full command of your artistic expression, you must first know what is being asked of you in the frame and in the script.
Finding the center of each beat and understanding how to stay present in each moment allows the story to progress frame by frame. Breaking down scripts adhering to what the writer is conveying, basic comprehension of scenes, and understanding how to bring yourself into the choices of the character are top priority in this class.
In the ten weeks we will uncover how to streamline choices, advocate for character and relationships and track character arc by virtue of understanding the shot, the set up and the demands of the piece. This will be tailored to each student. They will have group assignments and singular assignments with scripts, sides and dramaturgical assignments to meet the need of understanding the industry, the people in it, and the need to arrive at the level of the material.
Topics to be discussed include:
Two Year Professional Acting Conservatory training, or an equivalent Conservatory, Undergrad or MFA program. Special consideration may be given to students who have not completed any of the above. Please contact the Administration for more information.
