Course Content (Syllabus)
The Acting Lab I introduces students to the process of actor’s collaboration and guidance. Our starting point is the Stanislavsky’s system which is the main tool for actor’s training, worldwide. The methodology of the module involves the theoretical understanding of basic concepts of the system with their practical implications in the cinematic process. Acting Workshop proposes a way of script analysis as a whole and each scene separately, from the acting point of view. The process of casting and auditioning is also investigated. Special emphasis is given to the way the rehearsals are conducted and to the actor's guidance in the shooting.
Character creation, emotional memory, concentration, attention cycles, tempo-rhythm, Subtext, the goal, the purpose, Through-line, casting, audition.
