After a short theoretical introduction over the method we will work with powerful and yet simple relaxation exercises. This to create a strong awareness of the tensions in the body, your personal tics and physical habits. As well you will find out how to let go of them when needed.
After having experienced the power of this body awareness you will learn how to direct your attention (focus) on specific things in a scene using your 5 senses.
The result of this is to in any given situation create a strong and solid presence, and thus deliver text and movement totally authentic and believable.
At the end of day 1 we will to work with these skills in short scenes/situations.
After a short recap from day 1 you will work with exercises to learn to access and deliver strong emotions within a very short time of preparation.
We will continue the day by exploring the physicality of the characters in the scene; movements, body language, energy, voice…
In the afternoon we will begin to work in front of the camera. We will explore the subtle work of the facial muscles in a close up, as well where the character choose to look in a scene.
At the end of the day we will work with exercises related to casting situations.
We will work with the scenes in front of camera.
