CHARLOTTESVILLE – Arvold.education’s Master Class with Richard Warner – ($960/6 session course)

Arvold.education is thrilled to offer Master Scene Study Class with Richard Warner this summer!

This is an intensive, on-camera master scene study class offered to a small group of experienced actors. Each actor will learn and then explore tested techniques that will produce truthful, moment-to-moment work with consistency. Richard’s teaching philosophy and approach empowers actors to trust their talent, to stay present and confident as they create their own repeatable choices.

The class will focus on advanced script analysis using film scenes to create multi-layered, three-dimensional characters.  Features of the class include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • Exercises to deepen and expand the actors’ imagination.
  • Useful techniques to increase relaxation, concentration and deepen the actors’ sensory/emotional work.
  • In-depth analysis of a multi-scene role.
  • How to bring the skills of this course into the audition

The class is limited to 8 actors in order to offer thorough, in-depth coaching. Each session is 5-hours, twice a month, with a final weekend intensive. All actors must have legitimate on camera experience and/or a sophisticated background in theater training (recommended experience: co-star work in film/television and/or 10 substantial theater credits).
