Our second brand-new course this term is a 6 week exploration of screen acting basics with Luke Morgan. Luke is the founder and director of Project Spatula, a filmmaking collective based in Galway (projectspatula.com). His films have been shown in Film Festivals all over the world, including the Galway Film Fleadh, Chicago Film Festival, Cannes Short Film Corner and the Polish International Film Festival. A graduate of the Film & Documentary programme at GMIT, he has worked with countless actors of all ages, from professional to amateur.
The first 4 weeks will be spent getting comfortable in front of the camera, hitting marks, adapting performance for long, medium, and close shots, and much more, before spending the last two weeks rehearsing, filming and watching a scene or monologue for screen. By the end of the course, students should have a greater understanding of the different demands that screen work makes on the performer, and more confidence to put themselves out there and find some screen acting work!
