ACTING 102

Scene Study: Character and Motivation

This class is for students who have completed the instructor’s ACTING 101 CLASS (or a similar class or workshop), and would like to continue learning and improving their foundation acting skills.

IN THIS FUN FOUR-WEEK CLASS:

  • We’ll do more IMPROV, SCENE STUDY (memorizing and performing short scenes), along with several NEW exercises designed to move students’ acting skills to the next level.
  • You’ll learn how to do SIGHT READS, COLD READS, TABLE READS, and IMPROV reads, and get practice doing all four.
  • You’ll learn about CHARACTER, MOTIVATION, and how to identify what’s “driving” the scene from your character’s perspective, to bring any scene you’re performing into focus.
  • You’ll get lots of practice acting, and lots of performance time in front of the class.
  • ACTING 102 is offered several times a quarter. Sign up now using the links below.

guys-with-guns1Our focus in this class is on exploring character and personality, and connecting with the characters we’re portraying both physically and emotionally. We’ll start out by doing some improv, games, and group exercises, then move on to perform short scenes, exploring character elements such as objective, intention, personality, and motivation.

You can take this class as part of the Acting Fundamentals Certificate Program, or just for fun.  Instructor: Nils Osmar

A NOTE FROM THE INSTRUCTOR:

Some students have emailed me asking about the Intermediate Acting class, how it’s different from the Beginning Acting class, and how it fits into the range of acting classes I offer.
 
Beginning Acting is intended as an introduction to acting (laying the foundations for developing a range of different skills).

Student comments about this class:

Beginning Acting was fun; Intermediate Acting was where the real work started. The instructor worked hard to give students a solid foundation in pursuing their goals in the field. I highly recommend this class. – A.M., Seattle

I loved the first meeting… I feel like I finally understand the idea of ‘objective’ in a way I can actually use. When it clicked it was like a light going on. I don’t need to plan the emotions at all, just find who my character is and what she wants. Everything falls into place. Yay! Great class, Nils! – Mary R., Bellevue
