THE MPI ACTORS’ STUDIO WORKSHOP

Acting for film & digital media workshop

The MPI Actors Studio offers a professional development workshop that focuses on the art of film acting.

This beginner workshop introduces universally accepted acting methods for film and digital media. Beginning with basic acting principles, participants explore established techniques and how to apply their own life experience to deliver a truthful and naturalistic performance in front of the camera. Since the camera magnifies the actors’ action, delivery must be organic and real.

Lessons incorporate voice and movement concepts to control vocal inflections, facial expressions and using body language to express emotions subtly without words and include concepts such as relationships, personalizing the circumstances, listening, and reacting instinctively to overcome the amateur’s inclination to deliver an exaggerated or overly theatrical performance.

Conducted in a film studio environment, students will engage in role playing exercises, performing basic scenes that can translate their acting talents to a believable on-screen performance.

Length: 8 weeks

Frequency: 2 days per week

Times: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Cost: $975.00

The acting workshops offer avocational secondary objectives that are NOT within the school’s scope of institutional accreditation.

The acting workshops are expected to be scheduled by July of 2022. Put in your application, and we will contact you once a date has been announced.
