STAGE COMBAT FOR THE SCREEN!
Level 1 :The Fundamentals with Shawn Baichoo


2 classes, 5 hours per class
Frequency: Bi-Weekly or Sat and Sunday consecutively

Let’s face it. Action scenes dominate the market: ducking from a swinging punch, or jumping on the ground while taking cover from a tornado, or even something simple like pushing your scene partner against the wall… actors need training in stage combat. Whether you’re the lead actor fighting in “The Avengers”, or a day player running away from a gun fight, producers rather depend on actors that can handle physical exertion. They need to feel confident that you can handle stage combat and flexible movement and still be able to say your lines! Producers expect professional actors to adapt quickly to the blocking and the staging of movement without compromising the performance or wasting time on set.

SAA’s Stage Combat for the Screen Level 1 is a comprehensive 2 day workshop that will empower you to safely execute basic stunts while acting.

Students will learn: safety first (and the appropriate channels to report to should you feel unsafe), grabs, hair pulls, choking, collisions, fainting, slaps, punches and other physical movement seen on the screen!

MASTER OF THE MONOLOGUES

Did you know every actor needs a monologue, filmed in good quality, to showcase themselves and get an agent?

Most monologues are now played on film & television, with scene partners, revealing the character’s heart and soul! Take a look at the popular series “This is Us”! There are several monologues in every episode!

With this course, we provide you with screenplay monologues that are right for you! It is an excellent starter course for aspiring actors because the material is not overwhelming. The class is light, singular, and focused only on one subject matter: mastering the monologue! On the last class, we film you at our pro studio.
