Acting for film - Year program

Prague Film School
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 Czech Republic Prague

Prague Film School offers an accredited conservatory Acting for Film program. Students rigorously train in on-camera acting, voice, movement, acting theory and the business of acting. While some 90% of actors experience theater training, 90% of work for actors is in filmed media. To be successful in this highly competitive field, knowledge of techniques specific to film is essential for today’s actor. [+]

Best Course Studies in Performing Arts 2017. Acting Technique This practical course explores acting techniques applicable to both theater and film. Students will start with basic ensemble acting exercises and projects, progressively integrating more complex principles. Students will practice approaches to developing a character and analyzing text. Because film is primarily a naturalistic medium, the main emphasis will be grounded in the teachings of Konstantin Stanislavksi and his disciples. Actors will train in the basics of naturalist acting technique such as pursuing an objective, breaking scenes into beats, playing actions, and overcoming obstacles. The course will include a substantial unit on Meisner Technique, which builds the foundation for listening and responding truthfully in character. Screen Acting Craft Acting is both an art and a craft. This course will focus on craft, emphasizing the technical demands of screen acting. Students will learn to calibrate their performances specifically for the camera frame, adjusting for close ups and a wide shots. Since the camera photographs thought, students will develop an active and varying inner monologue, and understand the nuances of acting, thinking and listening with the eyes. A professional script supervisor will guide students through the craft of consistently using props and gestures, essential to on-set acting. A scene study unit will underscore how to break down a scene and play it effectively for camera. The course will culminate in the final project for the program, in which each student will develop a scene that best showcases him/her for a demo reel. Scenes will be professionally shot. Film Production It is an imperative part of the training process for actors to work on an actual film set. Therefore each student will be expected to participate in minimally sixteen short films, produced by Prague Film School directors. Other legitimate film work that an actor may obtain while in Prague might also be included towards course credit. Students will be encouraged to combine this material with scene work to produce a marketable show reel. For the final grade, students will be evaluated based on documentation in process oriented journals, as well as the quality of the final performance. Movement for Stage and Screen The actor must be physically fit and flexible. Each class day will begin with a strengthening warm-up regime, preparing students for the physical and vocal aspects of the craft. Units in this class will include yoga, and dance as well as combat and stunt work, led by a professional stuntman. Voice The vocal chords are a muscle and must be exercised and strengthened. Students will work with a voice coach to expand vocal range, develop vocal control and work with developing select accents. Audition Technique Acting skills are of very little use if they can't be put to practice on a professional set. This course will teach actors how to market and promote themselves in a competitive industry. Actors will learn strategies to tackle cold reading and on-screen castings. Each student will partake in a series of mock castings with a professional casting director who will critique their work. The Business of Acting Students will learn specific marketing strategies, and confer about how to navigate their career and attract professional representation. Specifically actors will learn how to organize a professional CV, choose a winning headshot, organize a successful website, and best take advantage of the Internet for actor marketing. They will also continue to practice and improve audition techniques learned in the first semester. Acting for film students will also be expected to enroll in two electives offered in the general Prague Film School program. These include: directing actors, lighting for film, central and eastern European cinema, Czech film, dramaturgy, animation, surrealism, among others.
