February Workshop

IAA Workshop Feb. 16, 2019
1pm - 5pm

The IAA February workshop will focus on Continuity and Consistency - Working with the Edit in Mind.

We will cover:

*Consistency in technical performance
*Continuity and use of props.
*Coverage and body position.
*Eye lines and cheats
*How the editor selects footage
*Avoiding the editing room floor
*Performance changes and how they can work both for and against the actor.

This workshop will cover theory on post production and what an editor looks for in your performance while cutting the film. In the world of independent film, often times the responsibility of continuity falls on the actor. Even on larger productions, self-awareness and consistency is a skill that can look easier than it is. We will also work exercises designed to bring awareness and develop a process for the actor to hone this valuable skill.

IAA Student and current LA Resident Katy O'Brian

"I was also thrilled to find that the information provided in the class was up to date. I have several friends who are working actors in Los Angeles and Chicago and they do not seem all together more informed about the business from their respective classes. I even shadowed a class in Los Angeles that was highlighted on and found that the information provided and the classwork was no different than that provided in Jim's classes.

You won't find a better deal for the quality. The environment is increadibly supportive but not superficial. Your work will be critiqued. It's the only way to improve...and you will improve."
