Something that I really wanted to gain out of this class (and I have) was the technique in how an actor engages with the camera, the film set, the communication they need to have, and what preparation they must have to meet the requirements of acting fro screen. Coming from a theatre background, this class has helped me gain an understanding of this.
i learned awesome things! this has been really helpful and mindblowing! thanks!
It was very interesting when she helped about preparing for a character. However, it would be even more interesting to get more technical advice about what movement can express what feeling, more tips about how to balance the expression of the required emotion, not to overplay it or underplay it for example.
Very helpful and most importantly liked that a lot of the material derived from her personal work .
