We are very excited to be able to offer you a three day intensive Scene Study On Camera Workshop with Berg!
Gregory will lead you on an exploration of the practical application of on-camera acting technique. Using the same technique and experience that he brings to his on-camera acting class at The Yale School of Drama, Mr. Berger will help you reveal your own powerful imagination and make it palpable, visceral, and transferrable to the rigors and restrictions of film and television.
We will begin the first day with practical “dos and don’ts”, the technical requirements of working scenes in front of the camera. On the second day we will move to rigorous and creative script analysis with all work being filmed, and culminate on the third day with all scenes being coached and filmed twice.
The objective of this workshop is to release the actor’s imagination through technique, cultivating authentic behavior on camera. Gregory encourages the actor to illuminate the text with bold provocative choices rather than illustrating the mundane, or predictable. Working this way allows the actor to move past any blocks, or fears, enabling the actor to truly reveal their private selves on film.
