Workshop Format and Timeline:

In advance, Actors prepare a 2-minute MONOLOGUE (memorized please), it can be comic or dramatic, from a film script or a play. This monologue is an important focal point of  6-Hour workshop. 

Hour #1:

- Open discussion regarding the differences between STAGE and FILM acting.

- Developing your acting or directing career in this new, unlimited international film, TV and streaming market place.

- What Casting Directors look for from Actors during AUDITIONS.

- What Directors need from actors on SET.

- Actors warm-up their BODIES (stretching & movement)

- Actors warm-up the MINDS with improvisation games 

Hours #2 & #3:

- Each Actor performs their 2-minute monologue ON CAMERA.

- Ms. Chappelle evaluates each Actor’s skills and gives individualized guidance on how to refine the monologue.

- The monologues are performed again as CONFIDENCE builds and the performance becomes CAMERA READY.

- Before the meal/rehearsal break, Actors are assigned a scene partner and a scene from a movie script to rehearse during the break . 

(2-hour meal/rehearsal break) 

Hours #4 & #5:

- The assigned scenes are rehearsed and performed ON CAMERA.

- Ms. Chappelle directs the scenes and coaches each Actor toward an “authentic” and "honest' performance, which is also CAMERA SMART. 


Hour #6:

- The Actor’s monologue are filmed again, using the  "tricks-of-the-trade" learned during the workshop and with new found confidence ON CAMERA.
