Scene Study Intensive: For the Serious Actor
This 4-week course is designed to help the actor develop a practical, linear rehearsal process. The class explores how an actor gives shape, color, and clarity to the foundations of truthful behavior and emotional involvement.
Class will emphasize the study of meanings, intentions and action playing, as derived from the text while always bringing the student back to the essential impact of ‘doing’ in striving for imaginative performances and vivid character work. The ‘reality of doing’ will also be central to character work and scene study, both of which the course will also address.
Exercises may include mini-open scenes and improvisations, as well as scene study from the masterworks of modern American drama.”
About the Instructor
Gene Terruso worked alongside Sanford Meisner over two years in Hollywood and has now been teaching the process for over 25 years.
Gene is a former Director of the School of Theatre Arts at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts and President of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (New York and Hollywood). He brings to his classes his own experience as both a film actor and director and has taught on-camera technique for narrative production, industrial, and commercial work both locally and in Chicago since 1989. Wickline Casting is fortunate to have this stellar instructor here to offer such a widely sought and rarely offered course.
Gene Terruso is an exceptionally wonderful acting coach with an interesting sense of humor and a keen understanding of the human psyche as related to the Meisner technique. He opened my eyes up to ways of using this technique for film and camera that are truly simple yet revolutionary. I would always recommend his classes! -Shantala
