Directing Actors Workshop



This workshop is for beginners who want to learn the basics of screenwriting for film.

A 5-week directing actors course where we have 6 resident actors who will get the chance to work in pairs on two different scenes per week. Actors in the workshop will be expected to rehearse with the directors outside of class, and be able to be off-script by the time they come to rehearsal and the performances in front of the class.

While in the class, the actors will perform their rehearsed scenes, and then be directed by the assigned director under tutelage from the workshop leader, award-winning director Ekwa Msangi.

Aside from getting the practice of working on different scenes with the 6 directors in the class, actor participants will also get to learn by observation and practice as they experience being directed and watch others doing the same. Actors will learn techniques on how to make a scene come alive, how to internalize and follow direction, and what to do when the director’s vision may not be coming through as they expect.
