“If you are like me, and you like to get the feeling, when watching a play or film or whatever, not that the actor is performing for you, but that you are being let in on a secret viewing of someone’s most private life…if you want to know what it feels like to do that in your work…then The Barrow Group is your place. And moreover, what they teach is simple, without ego.”
— Jennifer Landon, Three-time Emmy winner
Our film/tv classes are professional classes designed for actors with previous training and experience. If you are a beginner actor, you must begin with our Beginner Acting Class. For acceptance into Professional Film/TV Acting Class I: The Tools, students must audition.
Professional Film/TV Acting Class I: The Tools
This class explores The Barrow Group approach and tools to on-camera work. The class begins with a script analysis overview. Next, students explore tools via scene study and monologues. This workshop highlights quick and powerful ways to make your performance more natural and spontaneous.
For the first class, please have a short, contemporary monologue ready to share.
Professional Film/TV Acting Class II: On-Going
Pre-requisite: Students must have completed Professional Film/TV Acting Class I: The Tools.
This on-camera course prepares the student for the particular demands and challenges of acting on camera. Students will be introduced to more, and build upon, the Barrow Group tools introduced in the first class. Additional focus will be paid to continuity and coverage (i.e. medium shots and close-ups), and how to work on a set.
