COURSE DESCRIPTION: At the best of times, navigating the film industry while maintaining an integral sense of self can feel like an elusive challenge. If, on top of that, you are a human who identifies outside of a traditional gender binary, stepping into a character can hold further complexity than simply becoming someone else.
3 sets of material are assigned for each actor over the 6 week session. Actors will apply various tools, including scene analysis, audition preparation, emotional access drills, and engaging discussions around human behaviour that arise when understanding characters.
Expect an environment that welcomes dialogue around the challenges, ambiguity, and nuance of identifying outside of a traditional gender binary in an industry that still holds quite a ‘traditional’ lens. The actor will explore approaches in advocating for your needs in order to feel comfortable in gendered roles, fittings, discussions with cast/crew/agent. ETC!
This course is designed to uncover a new found sense of freedom as you give yourself permission to express your unique creative instincts, as well as develop a new community of humans who share a similar path.
