Damian Walshe-Howling Scene Study Intensive

Weekend Intensive 4 days

Brave Studios is proud to bring you the opportunity to work with incredibly experienced and highly sought after actor/director/coach Damian Walshe-Howling.

Damian has a unique way of working with actors, with an innate ability to enable major breakthroughs in their work. He has studied extensively in the Atlantic Theater Acting School’s technique Practical Aesthetics both internationally and locally and uses this technique in class with his students.

His extensive directing and acting experience, eye for detail in students work and what they need is both inspiring and highly productive.

This acting intensive focuses on getting to the truth of a scene through performance. The advanced actors will be encouraged to break down old habits, find ONLY truth in performance, make brave choices and take risks. Participants will work intensively with other students on scenes and perform them in front of the camera in our professional studio. We have seen so many breakthroughs in this class with students finding their true freedom and authenticity. Not to be missed!

COURSE COMPONENTS

  • Challenging scene-work
  • Find your truth as an actor via a method that best suits you
  • Strengthen your connection with other actors.
  • Work through your personal blocks to get to the truth of a scene
  • Clear bad habits
  • Connect to the truth of the scene, and finding the character within yourself.
  • Investigate the objective of the scene and go after that with desperation and desire.
  • Find the right beats and actions within a scene to determine what you want the other character to ‘do, think, or feel’ in that moment and try to affect a change in the other person.

All of these elements will be applied in front of a camera and uploaded to Vimeo for your private viewing and self-critiquing.
