Level II – Beginning/Intermediate

This course was created to support the actor in the evocative responsibilities they must realize while working in front of the camera. Actors learn through exercises, cold reading, scenes and monologues and are coached in: intimacy, energy level, depth, emotional range, essence, image, inner shadow, script interpretation, delivery, taking direction, auditioning, blocking, prop work, hitting marks and preparing for the set.

Emphasis is placed on reinforcing the techniques presented during the Cold Reading Weekend Intensive and continuing the next level of study. Breakthroughs that come out of the Intensive are reinforced. Next step lessons include: character development, how to rehearse, how to play to camera, simulating the audition and set work. The challenges of the profession are also addressed; as is the building of a unique and confident image. Jentzen’s Power Tools are taught to support emotional depth, imagination and book-ability.

Students are given specific assignments.  Emphasis is on becoming a self-reliant actor.  Focus is on developing the skills required for a successful career in the film and television industry.
