Nathalie Toriel

This six-week course of collaborative learning sessions will prepare (or refresh) teens for confidence and creativity in professional film and television acting. The course will cover how to listen and be present while working, creating compelling characters, making choices that work for you, text/subtext/context comprehension, cold readings and text preparation for auditions and scene work. Teens who take this course should come away with a toolbox of knowledge and technique to provide the confidence to work in the professional acting world and one recorded scene of their work.
