What we're about

Do you feel trapped in an existence that seems not your own? It's time to BE YOURSELF and MOVE AHEAD. This group is for people who want to shake off the distractions of life. This is for people who want to think beyond their commitment to a career. This is for people who would like more satisfaction than regret in their lives. HOW THIS GROUP WORKS is very simple. We seek out inspiring people who are living a more authentic life and ask them to share a bit about themselves and their experiences - in life, work, business & relationships. This is not about super motivational speakers but everyday people who have made a decision somewhere in their life to take actions that are in line with their values and needs. Come along to a talk, it might be just what you need!

YOUR MEETUP GROUP ORGANISER: I'm Vernon founder of The Casual Artist and I help people to find more meaning and fulfilment in their lives by connecting them with their creative passions. I started this meetup group as I realised through my work successfully coaching lapsed creatives that each of us has our own individual path to creative fulfilment, and this doesn't have to be sparked by a big name guru - it can be sparked in you, by someone just like you! vernon [at] thecasualartist.co.uk | @casualartist | http://www.thecasualartist.co.uk

Secret of Filmsets- Online Acting Workshop

Zoom

£25.00

We’re going to create mini films together, playing with the different roles of a film set. We will create a mock film set in zoom and get into the different roles there. You will be acting in one (or more) of our films but you will also get to be the director, writer, camera person or any other role behind or in front of the camera. This is a super fun way to discover the secrets of a film set and learn about: - Acting for camera - Directing scenes - Camera angles - Continuity - Frames and eyelines - The film set dynamics and mindset & mainly to discover how much fun a film set can be. Great for anyone who wants to be on a film set or anyone who’s absolutely not planning to see one. No acting or film experience is needed. This workshop will be led by Renana Schuppan. Here are a few words from her: "Hi, I’m Renana. I started in theatre as an extra on my mum’s comedy shows & have performed in Germany in dance and theatre shows since I was a child. I then trained at International School of Screen Acting and have been focused on the film world since. I am also an assistant casting director and assistant DOP (Director of Photography). Being on small and large film sets, I learned a lot about the dynamics on the set and the pressure each role is under. I’d love to explore that with you in a fun and playful way."

Step in to the world of clown! Apart from slapstick and circus skills, the world of clown plays a vital role in the modern comedy circuit and can be seen in theatre, film and television. Clowning teaches you key performance skills that any performer will find essential such as playfulness, sensitivity to your stage partners, great listening skills, rhythm and timing. Find out what makes you funny, how to embrace your inner idiot and how to listen to your audience. In this class, we will travel through some classic clown exercises, play games, make mistakes, be silly and make each other laugh This workshop will be led by Georgia Murphy. Georgia Murphy is a director, writer and theatre-maker specialising in clown and devised theatre. She has collaborated with Cal McCrystal (The Mighty Boosh), Marcello Magni (Complicite) and the UK’s leading clown company Spymonkey.
