WEEKEND ACTING CLASSES
Want to be the next new kid on the block? Tent Cinema’s acting school will train you to get there! The Hero-Heroine acting course is the first of its kind to be offered across Karnataka. Offered to students between the ages of 17 and 30, apart from the basics of acting, the course will also focus on grooming, dance and stunt training, leading-role–centric dialogue-delivery, tips on building a portfolio, and approaching production houses.
Tent Cinema’s acting philosophy incorporates several theatre-intensive exercises into its experiential learning process such as robust role-playing, voice modulation, and mirror exercises. By inculcating movements from Kalaripayattu and Yakshagana, actors open up and become free to channel any role/voice through their bodies and minds.
Another unique feature of the course is that it gears students to act for the camera. They are trained to become aware of how their movement appears on screen in a mid-shot, a close up, an over-the-shoulder, a two-shot and so on. To tap into the raw potential of an acting student and turn it into the energy of an actor capable of performing in a leading role, individual attention is a must. The Hero-Heroine acting course at TentCinema is specifically designed to nurture and groom each actor according to their specific strengths.
At the end of the course, students will be able to put their rigorous and disciplined approach to acting to test. They will rehearse for a play and act in a short film. While the drama rehearsals enable them to use the skills they’ve acquired their theatre skills in real time, the short film is a great platform to begin building their portfolio.
The course will feature faculty with close ties to the television and film industry. Moreover, Tent Cinema alumni are eligible to avail of the calls for auditions Tent Cinema receives quite often from the industry.
