Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

Beginning July 15th, 2019

Registration is now open for the Summer Session at The Dirt Underneath which begins July 15th. All classes at The Dirt Underneath are 4 hours once a week for six weeks, capped at 10 students, and filmed with a two-camera setup. And you receive all of your footage via a downloadable link every week.

• On-Camera Scene Study Class w/ John Gordon
➣ In these classes, actors will learn their strengths and what they need to work on in front of the camera. Points of emphasis will be: seeking out visceral objectives; the belief that an objective is attainable; finding compelling obstacles through both character and in-depth script analysis; and learning to be comfortable being uncomfortable while working in front of the camera through breath and physical awareness on existing film and television scripts. John also teaches an Advanced On-Camera Scene Study Class for actors who are working regularly in film and television and theatre or who have studied with him for at least two terms.

• On-Camera Scene Study (The Cycle) w/ Shaun James McComb
➣ The Dirt has honed in on some key concepts that The Cycle unpacks to bridge the gap between technique and play. By working at a slower pace The Cycle aims to keep acting fun, develop strategies to utilize the actor’s natural nerves, and form a vocabulary that ignites a free imaginative flow from analysis to practice to performance.
This is a class for those new to the craft or are looking to re-examine their technique by working at a slower pace than John Gordon's regular and advanced On-Camera Scene Study classes.

First and foremost, acting is embarrassing. It’s way better when it is. We need a space to break patterns and habits, to stop worrying about whether it’s polished enough, to develop new points of view, to know not just know what the characters want, but why they deserve to get it. I believe breath connects us to emotional and physical impulses and that cannot be emphasized enough. I believe in comprehensive script analysis and working moment to moment to achieve visceral objectives. In front of the camera and onstage at The Dirt, this pursuit is not sacred and is full of silliness and joy.
