Actors Scene Study

Term Classes 8 weeks

The Actors Scene Study course is designed for students who are competent in the foundations of script and scene analysis and are ready to dive into scene study. It will challenge students in training to let go and trust the process.

 This Acting course for film and TV has been developed to enable the actor in training to discover the meaning of “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances” (Sanford Meisner). It is designed as a scene study course for students to work through a variety of more challenging scenes. Students must have a good understanding of Script analysis in order to participate in this course and be able to let go.  Acting coaches will encourage students to trust the work is done  through script analysis and to let go and be in the moment.

As actors, being truthful in performance can be the most elusive and difficult part of our job. Being truly vulnerable and spontaneous in the work is incredibly liberating. Your Acting coach will guide you through this and focus on your moment to moment work to be present in the scene.

So much of this comes down to trust: trusting ourselves, trusting each other. Brave Studios will encourage you to do just that. By letting go and trusting yourself and the process, you will forge a path to your truth. The results are astounding.

This is not a beginner’s course. Students must be competent in Brave Studios Foundation Technique course. We require you to have a thorough knowledge of script analysis. It is an acting course in film and TV for actors starting to meet with blocks or limitations.

If you require a Beginners course, please refer to our Level 1 and Level 2 course.
