About this Event
Modeling Coach & Published Commercial Photographer Amanda Dempsey of CIMC Studios has teamed up with Acting Coach Elizabeth Davis to create a much needed acting workshop specifically for models.
Modeling is a dynamic, exquisite industry to pursue but it is also one of the most misunderstood, misinformed industries. Today, so many models feel that being beautiful and working with a fantastic photographer is enough. Well, it's not.
Brands, new and established - fashion, accessories, products, or services - will have specific stories or brand stories they will want to be told thru the models they hire to represent them. This involves Acting. Yes, Acting!
Models are actors, storytellers, and salespeople all wrapped into one stunning photograph. They work as a part of a creative team to ensure the client's vision is met. If the model doesn't hold up their end, then the model won't be working for much longer.
Welcome to the Acting Workshop that's here to save the day! Acting For Models is an acting class specifically designed for models. Not only will you learn acting (of course) but you will learn how to tell stories using your eyes, body, and movement.
What Will You Learn:
In the two-part acting for models class, we cover voice/diction, emotion, basic improv, basic character development, the difference in commercial vs editorial vs fashion and how acting plays into that, and onset basics for commercials/film and photography.
The reason we are only allowing 5 spots is that acting & modeling is best coached one on one & in a group. We want to ensure each model gets plenty of one on one attention, as well as enough time to work with partners during this two-part class.
