Ripley-Grier Studios, 520 8th Ave.
New York, NY 10018 United States

No Audition Required | 4 Sessions By Age, 7-Adults | Saturday and/or Sunday, March 21-22 | Cost: 205.00

NEW WORKSHOP! Take 1 or more sessions while Wendy is in town!

Wendy Faraone is an influential TV and Film Director whose most well known for her work on the Disney and Nickelodeon channels. If you have studied with Wendy in the past at ACANY, you more than likely learned multi-camera acting technique for sitcoms.

However, it is imperative that actors also begin to learn single camera technique as well!

Single camera shows are more often than not dramatic shows, or when used in a sitcom, these are the more understated and dramatic moments within an episode.

Learn the art of performing dramatic scenes for single camera television shows from one of the industry’s most in-demand professionals, Wendy Faraone!

Wendy states, “Technically all of my shows are hybrids of single and multi right now. Take a look at JUST ROLL WITH IT! There’s a ton of single camera shots in that show!”

Focus of Class:
• Create a believable character for a naturalistic performance
• Develop the tools needed for single camera dramatic acting, such as: playing naturally in your eyes and focusing on subtext, voice and relationship
• Work on grounding and truth-telling
• Learn how to play a believable role while being aware of camera angles

All scenes will be played back for critique.
