Moment & Action: A Practical Guide to Acting in the Zoom Age
While the way we tell stories has changed for the time being, the pressing need to tell them has not. Join Atlantic Acting School Artistic Director Reggie D. White and Admissions Director Christopher Jewels-Booth as they offer a practical guide to acting in the age of Zoom. Using the tenets of Atlantic’s world-renowned acting technique, Practical Aesthetics, Reggie and Chris will explore the pinnacles and pitfalls of the art of storytelling during these uncertain times. Whether it be mastering your monologue or self-tape, connecting with your fellow actor remotely, or strategizing your next artistic and professional steps, this workshop will help you to find your virtual footing.
