Intense Acting Class

Become who you really are

This 5 days workshop is designed to boost your career and to have a clear understanding of what it takes to be a successful actor in today’s film industry. You will be approaching your craft from different angles by working on script scenes, sizes, mock auditions, monologues, exercises, etc. Most of the work will be “on-camera” with in-class video playback and instructor feedback. We will challenge you to film yourselves outside class. We will critique your off-class scenes everyday so you can progress faster. American productions are more and more attracted to Italy for the natural and artistic beauty that our territory offers. Our goal is to push the idea that Italy has got much more to offer: YOU!!! Our wonderful Italian talents.

You need a showreel!

Netflix, Amazon, and cable TV are demanding new faces and talents all over the world. Be part of this exponential growth by being ready and competitive. But you will not convince no producer or director with your one page unformatted CV: YOU NEED A SHOWREEL!!!! And we will provide exactly that for you! At the end of our 5 days together you will come out with your own 3 minutes show reel: you’ll be the absolute protagonist in a scene of “your choice” from renown films. Be it an intense dramatic scene or a comedic one, your talent will showcase you in the best light, best make up and best camera shot.
