Format

Join award-winning director-producer John Gallagher of 305 Media Group for a one two week master class in film improv.  Somebody said "Dying is easy, comedy is hard";  the emphasis of the class will be on comedic scenes designed to hone the actor's improvisational skills.  

Improvisation is an essential tool for the actor. The instructor places a major emphasis on on-camera improvisation as a means to develop the screen actor’s ear, promote creativity, and gain confidence on-camera without the burden of learning dialogue. Additionally, improvisation has become a required skill for industry auditions.  Improv is creatively liberating and teaches you to think on your feet – crucial to every aspect of the film actor’s craft, from audition to rehearsal to shooting.

**No need to prepare anything for this class.**
