Total Prep Fusion is a one day 7-hour intensive providing actors personal, in-depth instruction and practical, professional advice on the preparation process. This class combines Arvold-Warner’s core curriculum Total Prep 1 and Total Prep 2. Master teachers Erica Arvold and Richard Warner guide actors using the Arvold-Warner 10-step preparation checklist for creating character for film and television. This multi-layered, progressive study is for intermediate actors. The Arvold-Warner approach is a synthesis of the major 20th century acting methods, with focus on supporting and developing each individual’s personal practice while also expanding their craft toolkit. Grounded in the detailed study of a scene, actors explore efficient, effective techniques for creating action-based characters for the audition as well as the set.
Features of the class include:
• script analysis
• sensory work
• in-character thinking
• developing relationships • on-camera practice
• individualized coaching
Actors will deepen their ability to create exciting, original and personal work. The first half of class is discussion and exercise based, and the second half is intensive coaching – please come prepared to work!
arvold.education focuses on both the philosophical and pragmatic aspects of being a film artist.
