On Screen Performance with Ruth Borgobello

Over six weeks we will go on a journey towards mastering the on-screen performance. Whether you’re an actor keen to hone your craft on camera, or a budding director driven to learn new skills in working with actors and harnessing compelling, truthful performances – the course will take you through the entire process. Each week, we’ll explore an aspect of on-screen performance – from auditions and casting, to rehearsals, script analysis, blocking and on-set performance. All geared towards building craft, confidence, and professional technique when it comes to performance on-screen in an inspiring and rewarding creative space.

‘Ruth Borgobello is a Writer/Director for film and television. Ruth’s debut feature film, THE SPACE BETWEEN was Australia’s candidate for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Academy Awards.’

 

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN


You’ll learn all about the emotional language of actors and directors, explore different directing and performance techniques, and build confidence in fostering fruitful collaborations between the two.

Working with selective film and TV scripts, we will explore techniques to help you capture the truth of a scene and deliver authentic performances.

We’ll also delve into technical aspects like continuity, on set blocking, camera angles and shooting protocols. This is a course for actors and directors alike – actors can step into the director’s shoes, and directors can gain invaluable practice directing on-screen performance as well as experience what it’s like to be in front of the camera themselves.
