Masterclass Camera Acting


(in English and for professionals only)

Hugo’s big passion is film acting and carrying forward his expertise onto other actors. As founding father of and teacher at the film actors academy, he has been teaching acting for years since the beginning of this century. His experience as an actor (national and international), but also as a director, coach, casting director and even as an agent, leads him to doing what he does best: making actors shift to another mindset in a short amount of time and help them breaking through their tendency to repeat the things they did before. Most of all, he helps actors to create their own method of preparing and working oon set. This makes their approach to film acting more specific and effective.

Every actor has a unique style and personality. It is essential to become aware of what it is what defines you as an actor. What can you physically do to make your character and acting personal and truthful? In this masterclass we will train on mastering your profession, working with film scenes and monologues in English, learning how to deal with making yourself seen in the acting business worldwide. Purpose is to give each actor insights in how to deal with really handling a scene, learning in a technical way how to find emotional behavior that fits with the scene and your personality. How can you play the scene in many different ways, so the casting director gets an overview of all possibilities for the part, casting you?
