6-Week Directors Workshop - March 24
Time & Location
About The Event
Meets Sundays 2-5pm beginning March 24—there will be no workshop on (Easter) Sunday, April 21.
Each week we incorporate exercises designed to enhance the understanding of what a director does. Below is an example from a recent 6-week workshop.
WEEK 1 – Exploring subtext and character
WEEK 2 – Dramatic or Comic circumstances
WEEK 3 – Rehearsing beat by beat
WEEK 4 – Directing the actions: What behavior is possible?
WEEK 5 – Intensifying the performances
WEEK 6 – Giving the scene shape and rhythm
Participants work from scripts, pilots, web series, or plays. You may bring your own material or work from provided scripted material. In this hands-on workshop, you will work the craft of directing with director-teacher Robert Bailey. Robert has been directing and acting for over thirty years. He teaches directing and acting at USC, and is a director and acting teacher at New York Film Academy.
THE DIRECTORS WORKSHOP
The Directors Workshop gives directors, actors, and writer-directors an opportunity to hone their craft without the pressures of production. A variety of workshops are offered from one-day to six-week to intensive weekends.
