In this 2-Week Intensive, you will work on TV & Film scenes provided by Donna, who will be coaching you on your on-camera performance. She will provide feedback, adjustments, and guidance on continuing to grow your craft.
Class 1 - Q & A and introduction improv exercise. Each student will get to ask questions, perform a scene Donna assigned with a scene partner she will pair you up with, with some twists and learning exercises!
Class 2 - Donna will assign another scene for you to prepare. This will be a phone conversation with twists.
This is the MCKENNA Method. It will help you adapt to changes on set and in an audition setting. It is extremely helpful, especially now when change happens in a moment's notice. During the second class, there will also be a discussion about the “Business of Acting”.
