Thursday, June 25th from 6-7 PM: Fear of Film Workshop! – Erika Stone –
Are you a theatre actor who has thought of working on film but have been afraid that your theatre style of acting won’t translate? Never fear. In this workshop Erika Stone, Acting Instructor with the FSU Film School, will give you practical tools and techniques to translate your acting to fit the requirements of film. Just provide any short monologue or scene (2 minutes or less) and we will re-work it for film after a demonstration and discussion of film technique.
