This is a deep dive into acting under the most demanding circumstances: a close up of a character's face.
Over 15 hours of lectures are devoted to improving your understanding of believable acting, creating graphically appealing expressions based on anatomy, and polishing all the details that make a face feel truly alive. Each week there will be a new lecture detailing acting breakdowns from photo, video, animation, or illustration. Additionally there are several lectures covering stepped and layering workflow techniques, creating natural expressions, lip sync, and polish. There will also be a live one on one review session with your teacher each week.
Over the 12 week course you will complete two close up shots. The lectures will show every step of the way for each assignment, from planning to polish. The course will challenge you to create a very specific character with precise acting choices, clear and appealing expressions, and all the polish a tight close up requires. A close up shot is the most heavily scrutinized type of shot in a film, this course will show you techniques that can help you succeed.
