“The camera doesn’t have to be wooed. It already loves you very deeply.” – Michael Caine

This workshop offers a short training for students about the difference between acting for film and acting on stage in live productions. Students learn the principles of acting for a camera and the benefits and drawbacks of capturing performances using modern technology. This workshop is informed by Trinidad State faculty’s recent experience in directing and producing an original play, Beyond the Door by Douglas Farr, specifically for production as a short film.

Facilitators: Christopher Smith and Joe Reorda II, Trinidad State College faculty
