WHAT WE THINK
Actor training at the high school and collegiate levels has long been focused on theatre acting. While a degree is essential and the experience unparalleled, the majority of theatre-trained actors are bereft of the skills needed to pursue a film career. The Actors Ensemble believes that all performing artists must beexposed to the detail, discipline and rigor of screen acting. Those who decide to jump headfirst into the choppy waters of becoming a screen actor will fail without a solid foundation. Possessing a trusted skill-set in conjunction with talent, breed’s confidence…priceless to all artists!
The fundamental goal of an actor is to locate, nurture and apply a trusted, personal technique.
The Actors Ensemble Workshop focuses mainstream acting theories and how they apply to the camera. By immersing each student on both sides of the camera in a live-set environment, exposing them to the stylish and technical demands of on-camera performance, participants can fully comprehend their role in creating film/television content. However vast and persistent the acting revolution is, more opportunity
for work is born from the new demands of the industry.
