ACTING FOR FILM
What is it?
Many aspiring actors would like to get into acting on the big screen. Practice or experience can be the best way to get skills in a new area. But if you want to increase your chances in a very over-populated and crowded market you can push yourself ahead at a faster rate by taking some classes in film and TV acting. Film acting classes will take you from rehearsing the scene through to actually shooting it, giving you an opportunity to see what it is like to work together with a crew and with all the other parameters that are in place when an actor works on set.
What the benefits are and or whom it is necessary
Practicing film acting will allow you to fine tune your process so that what is eventually seen on screen is exactly what the director intends it to be. As an actor, you are a part of your performance so it can be very difficult to tell how you are coming across. The beauty of film acting is that you can watch it after it is shot and see what is successful and what is not and then do it again if necessary and, if the director so desires. The only people who are ever going to see you work live when when you are shooting a film and when your performance is being recorded are the director, crew and the other actors you are in a scene with. Your work will ultimately be judged on the quality of what your greater audience sees on the screen as well as on your appeal, not the live performance itself.
Before you take an acting for film class, you should definitely have learned a good acting technique. You will learn all about how to give a believable, truthful performance while operating under the director’s commands of hitting a certain mark and being filmed from a certain angle. If you are trained in theater you will learn how to moderate your performance style to still keep all the nuances but whilst making it adaptable for film.
