Courses for Actors 3 – Self-Taping Short Movies
March 7 – 11:00 am – 2:00 pm UTC+0
Self-taping has become the norm in the entertainment industry when it comes to auditions.
Demo Reels showing recent productions are a necessity for actors who want better chances of booking jobs.
Short Movies are a great way for actors to showcase their work and keep their performances fresh.
In this workshop, we will combine all of the above and teach you how to use your self-taping settings to create new material for your demo reels with short movies. We will show you examples of scripts with minimal cast (one to three actors), and explore the several ways you can put stories together in your home computer.
We will discuss simple ways of filming and editing, capturing your performance in the best light for a home-setting, and where to showcase your short movie to promote yourself as an actor.
We will cover: using phone x camera; editing apps and software; casting scene partners; image usage and promotional tools.
This workshop will be 3 hours long in total, including a 30-minute break.
