Atlanta Film Society Presents Directing From The Heart

“If you've ever thought your gift was given to you by accident, your gift to create, just know that you and your unique voice were brought to this world on purpose. You, artist, were born to create greatness; to build moving pieces of art that have been birthed to shape the world. Join us in the Directing from the Heart Intensive where you will be able to tap into that unique perspective and find your creative voice. Directing from the Heart is geared towards helping directors and actors breathe life into their work while bringing authentic performances to the screen.

Different techniques used in this class will be:

1. Developmental Character study

2. Understanding your why in the material

3. How to communicate your vision with actors as well as creating a tone on set

4. Revealing your strength in authenticity

5.Studying taped performances from class and performances from films

6. One-on-one with the instructor

7. Opportunity for Directors and actors to work together by being paired off to work a

scene and then critique (virtually)

The class will culminate in a live workshopped performance in front of family, friends, and industry professionals. Students will walk away with a virtual workshopped performance to keep."
