Class 174614-3-4-19:
"Acting Intensive: 3 Scenes"
Sat. 12:30 pm-3:30 pm 6/15, 6/22, 6/29
University of Washington campus
Max. enrollment: 12. Enrolled so far: 5


This class is for students who have completed ACTING 101, 102, and 103, and would like to continue learning and improving their foundation acting skills.

Our focus will be on more ADVANCED SCENE STUDY, with an emphasis on coming up with your own BLOCKING and stage action. Students should be familiar with the basics of sense memory, how to memorize, and script analysis. 

In each meeting, you’ll be given a short script to film before class. You’ll be asked to come with it completely learned, then to block it yourself and PERFORM it in front of the class. We’ll FILM your performance and play it back, giving students a chance to watch and get immediate feedback about their performances and blocking choices.

We’ll film the performances in class, then study them, looking at what works and doesn’t, and how changing the blocking or choices we make as actors can bring different elements of the scenes into focus.

You’ll get lots of practice acting, and lots of performance time in front of the class.

This class can be taken on its own, or as part of our Acting Fundamentals Certificate Program.  Instructor: Nils Osmar

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
