As a foundational skill, students are strongly recommended to take Script Analysis before beginning on-camera training. Through the study and analysis of award-winning screenplays, students will: ~learn how to determine the four key elements in a script. ~strengthen their ability to build relationships with directors and writers through a deeper commitment to the story and how the actor's character contributes to it. ~develop critical thinking and inquiry skills so they can ask insightful, relevant questions at auditions, callbacks, and the table read. ~apply their newfound skills to sides. We will also examine non-award winning scripts where the four key elements are more challenging to determine, and how actors can use script analysis skills when they only have access to audition sides.
