Emotional Preparation for the Camera with BAW Founder Amy Werba

“Dear Amy, You are an amazing teacher, sharp as ** and terrifically inspirational. I wish I could have classes with you all the time- I need you! I learnt so much in that short time and got so much motivation to keep working. I just loved it!” Jazzmine B., 2016

Open to intermediate and advanced students, this nine hour technique workshop will teach participants how to successfully prepare for auditions and work in front of the camera. The first part of this workshop will concentrate on emotional preparation using Method exercises. The second part will put this technique into practice with filmed monologue and scene work which the participants will then observe.
Taught by BAW’s Founder and Artistic Director Amy Werba, participants will learn:
– sensory awareness
– private moments
– affective memory
– creative imagination
– relaxation
– character development
These basic elements will give students the techniques needed to bring a full emotional life to any film acting role they are cast in!
Please come to class prepared with a 2- to 3-minute contemporary monologue with strong emotional content from a film script in any language. Memorize the monologue without punctuation or rehearsal (text only). Please read the entire script in order to understand the character. This workshop is taught in English however students are welcome to work in their mother tongue.
Amy WERBA employs techniques learned directly from Lee STRASBERG and Shelley WINTERS at the Actors Studio in New York, as well as some of her own techniques.
Bring your photos, bios, and CVs to get tips and advice. You can even send them in before the workshop.
