Is this a networking meetup? No, but you’ll certainly make connections. Is this meetup focused on marketing or tricks of the trade? No, but you’ll definitely learn a lot.
This is a group for directors, actors, and writers who want to practice their trade. Instead of talking about how to do something, we’ll be learning by doing.
Here’s how it works. Each cycle (roughly 3 weeks) we’ll randomly pair up into groups of 3. Two actors, one director. Scripts will be assigned (either from those submitted or scenes from classics) and the groups will go off and rehearse. At the end of a cycle we’ll preform the scenes to the group and get feedback. Then we’ll shuffle and do it again.
The idea behind this is that directing and acting are crafts that need to be constantly practiced and honed. Here’s an opportunity to do it. Whether you’re a seasoned actor or someone that’s never done it but always wanted to try… Whether you’re Hitchcock or a filmmaker that was never taught how to work with actors… As long as you have a positive attitude, this meetup is for you!
