We will work out the class times between the instructor and the students.

Body kinematics are explored in the context of acting. Students learn rhythm, solidity, beats/phrasing, appeal, personality, structure, solid and malleable parts, simplicity of form, straights and curves, texture in timing, moving holds, and pantomime.

Multiple shot assignments focus on hookups, screen space, and cameras, knowing shot context and importance. Students begin to use the more advanced character rigs during this term.
