 Acting Techniques
Incorporates different world renowned techniques which help in understanding, analysing and applying the craft of Acting. The module spans the history of Acting : traditional and classical modes of acting, modern acting i.e. method acting / realistic form of acting and the post-modern, i.e. contemporary methodologies, to comprehend the art of performance more efficiently.
Creative Body Movements
The body is the basic tool of an actor, just as brushes and canvas are to a painter. Creative body movements are prime exercises, which are conducted in the beginning of almost every acting class conducted by the faculty. These movement classes enables one to become graceful and energetic, and makes one aware of factors like rhythm, gait, pace, tempo, gestures, postures, body language, compositions, etc. which later help one in understanding scenes more effectively.
Voice Culture
The voice is another tool of an actor. In voice classes, students get to understand the power of their voice and gain an insight of how to modify it by controlling various resonators and muscles.
By doing different breathing exercises, the students learn voice modulation which helps them in understanding the nuances of diction and articulation.
Diction & Speech
The students are taught the importance of clarity of speech — articulation as well as expressions. The students are made to analyse and study various monologues from plays and films, which later helps them in dialogue delivery
Actor and Camera
This aspect of training is a highly technical endeavour which deals with all the technical nuances of film acting, concerning the camera. Here the students get to know the importance of the camera, camera placement, camera movement, shot division, shot taking, types of shots, the presence of the actor before the camera, the significance of the ‘mark’ vis-à-vis the camera, etc.
Scene Studies and Script Analysis
These are intensive classroom exercises where various types of scenes, and the components within the scenes, are meticulously studied by observing the minutest details of classic movies.
The emergence of ideas like ‘conflict’, ‘status’, ‘motive/want’ of the character in the particular scene, ‘urgency’ of the situation, fluctuations in the circumstances and the spontaneity of the character in the situation to adapt to the circumstances are keenly studied and applied in the practical sessions. Scripts for acting sessions are deeply studied for the meanings, interpretations, unit divisions, sub-text, stresses, pauses, for the purpose of characterisation.
