Adult Scene Study

On-going

Mixed Levels

This class is intended for mixed levels of experience from those coming back to acting to the working actor that is getting familiar with Babcock Studios. Todd does not believe in Acting 101, acting pyramids or set levels of advancement. Acting is intuitive and creative, and students can come to it with a natural aptitude that can be beyond their years.

 

Class is structured in the form of scene study as a way to deliver exercises, instruction, directing and personal revelation in order to develop each actor/ actress to their best work.

This class is to create a nurturing environment where students learn their own internal process and begin to construct a system through guidance and encouragement.

- Students must interview at the studio before placement.  Please prepare a 1 to a 2-minute monologue or you may choose to do a cold read Todd will assign.  If you have an acting reel you may submit it, rather than audition.

- On-going, month to month class

- Todd assigns scenes specifically to the actor and what he or she are working on from material from film and television. 

- Students are expected to conduct themselves as professionals, rehearse outside of class, bring all necessary items for their scenes and be off-book.

Adult On-Camera Acting

Intermediate / Advanced

On-going

This on-camera acting class is similar to our scene study classes though with an extra "eye" towards the camera.  Preparation, analysis and emotional truth are explored within the confines of the camera frame.

Students will view classes live and on monitors as shot sizes, angles and direction change with each take and adjustments are made. This on-going class examines how the truth translates to all formats but gives on-set training for honing it specifically for the lens.

Prerequisite - Minimum 2 months "Adult Scene Study".  Todd must approve your placement into this class.

- All new students to Babcock Studios are placed in our "Acting Fundamentals Workshop" or one of our "Adult Scene Study" classes.  This is to familiarize the student with the way our classes are taught and to develop a language of working with Todd.  Once Todd feels you have an understanding you will be asked to join one of our more advanced classes.  Please know our classes, regardless of level are taught to the individual.

Teen Acting Class

All Levels

No Upcoming Dates

There is often a gap between "children's classes" and adult professional training. Into that space fall many advanced younger teens and young adults who have outgrown kiddie classes and want to and are ready to be treated as professionals.

This class is designed for that tween performer who is ready for the professional expectations of a Hollywood set. In a fun, creative yet demanding environment each young person will start developing their own system of how to work in a safe environment. Scenes from film, television and theater will be employed to build their intellectual, emotional and creative strengths. They will also learn a great deal about how "the system" works and what they can expect as they grow into the artists/professionals they want to become.

Ages 13 - 17 (12 with Todd's approval)

- NO audition required / must interview before placement
