Taught By: Zishan Ugurlu

Section: A

CRN: 7293

Credits: 4

This course is designed to assist students in making the transition from performing in the theatre to performing for the camera. Through exercises and scene study, the students will explore the terminology of equipment and procedure that is specific to film acting and will learn how to develop their range of physical, vocal, intellectual and emotional expressiveness while facing the camera. This course will help to bring students’ unique talent and personality to the screen with full confidence, specificity, intimacy and freedom. The thematic focus of this Civic Liberal Arts course for Spring 2019 is science films. Students will engage with Imagine Science Films, a non-profit organization founded by Alexis Gambis and supported by the team of Nate Dorr and Lauren Kaye that seeks to challenge and expand the role of science in the current cultural discourse by providing a forum for adventurous interdisciplinary collaboration. During the course the students will create a digital copy of their camera work. No prerequisite.
