Nuance and Subtlety - Working in Closeup
Windridge Office Building
5435 Emerson Way, Indianapolis
This event has already passed by. Sorry.
The IAA March workshop will focus on working in close-up.
We will cover:
* The eye zone for effective audience connection * The Power of micro-expression * Allowing the audience in instead of showing them
* Frame lines and working withing them
* Eyes and Non-verbal communication Thought and Storytelling with eye position
* Connection and cheating to lens and light.
The eyes are the window to the soul and the soul is what the audience connects to. The close-up is the place where emotional connection takes place and having effective eye work adds great tools to your craft. We will explore the language of the eyes and how they tell stories with nuanced movement. We will also work on technique to keep your eyes alive to let the audience in.
*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**
