Alaine's specialty is working with actors on scene and character study work. This involves working on the text to sharpen the actor's technique. Additional assignments will be given that help the actors use their own life experiences as a spring board for creative storytelling for their characters. Actors work closely together with a spirit of inspiration rather than competition. All material and scripts will be carefully selected by Alaine for each actor.
WEEKS 1-3: Actors will be working with Alaine extensively on scenes that she assigns in class.
WEEK 4: Showcase the scenes with an industry panel of three special guests.
WEEK 5: Private meetings with Alaine to discuss the overall work as well as the industry feedback.
