Ovation! ~ proudly serving students from York Region, Toronto and surrounding areas including: Aurora, Markham, Newmarket, Oshawa, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, Thornhill, Vaughan and Whitchurch-Stouffville.
Commercials, movies, TV, webcasts. scripted shows, reality shows, documentaries, binge-watching, youtubers. The list goes on! The camera sees things differently than the human eye. Students develop their naturalness on camera, listening/responding, characterization, focus, spontaneity and ability to improvise - all the elements needed for an assured screen performance. The technical side of screen work, and the differences between stage and screen are also explored, focusing on: voice, text analysis, expression, intention, on camera auditions, on-set technique and terminology, creating the illusion of spontaneity + immediacy in scripted work, defining and structuring the frame. It all leads towards the students creating a body of work (scenes, monologues, commercials, music videos, trailers, short films, etc.)
