Scene Study (FIL212)

40 hours (4 weeks).
The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, 39 West 19th Street, New York, NY.

June 2007 - December 2013.

Learner Outcomes: 
More advanced students review their craft and begin to learn how to apply the actor's work to the camera. Prepare scenes chosen from film and television scripts on their own and show up to the set camera ready. Develop technical skills of memorization, hitting marks, finding your camera, acting in specific shots, and on-set behavior.
The student takes the acting skills they have learned up to this point and begins to learn how to apply them to the camera. While learning camera technique, the teacher will continue to move the student's acting skills forward. Scenes are taped, and students have the opportunity to view their work outside of class.
Credit recommendation: 
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 2 semester hours in Theatre, Drama, Communications, or Radio and Television (7/07) (6/08 revalidation).
