IAA February - Continuity and Consistency - Working with the Edit in Mind
Windridge Office Building
This event has already passed by. Sorry.
The IAA February workshop will focus on continuity, consistency, and what the editor needs.
We will cover:
*Consistency in technical performance
*Continuity and use of props.
*Coverage and body position.
*Eye lines and cheats
*How the editor selects footage
*Avoiding the editing room floor
*Performance changes and how they can work both for and against the actor.
This workshop will cover theory on post production and what an editor looks for in your performance while cutting the film. In the world of independent film, often times the responsibility of continuity falls on the actor. Even on larger productions, self-awareness and consistency is a skill that can look easier than it is.
We will also work exercises designed to bring awareness and develop a process for the actor to hone this valuable skill.
*Workshop tuition is non-refundable. If a student's scheduling issue arises, credit will be held for a future workshop for a period of 90 days*
**If weather is an issue this workshop will be rescheduled to the following week**

While living in Chicago, Jim trained as a stuntman under John Hicks Pearce and became the assistant coordinator for The Chicago Stunt Team.
