Acting Workshop with Sheila Gray
Please send us your application before booking
Recognized for her work in series such as ‘Sex and the City‘, ‘The Sopranos’ among many others; Sheila Gray will be in Berlin conducting an acting workshop. Exercises and Scene Work.
This workshop will be a survey class of tools an actor can implement while rehearsing and performing with an emphasis on film technique. Since working in film is an intimate process with the camera picking up subtleties we will focus on how to develop privacy in a public setting and how to create a rich internal life and inner dialogue that the camera will then pick up. This will enable the actors to embody the characters and the stories they tell in a realistic and unique way. We will work on preparation, concentration and the physicality for the scenes in order to bring the intensity and depth which make film scenes so dynamic and exciting. I will often interject during an exercise or scene in order to guide it and accustom the actor to taking direction in the moment.
“People often prepare for movies or plays they are about to work on during my workshops. If students would like to do this please send us the material in advance so we can review and be familiar with it, that way our time can be used in the most productive way.”

The class will begin with relaxation and body work followed by emotional and imaginative exercises to stimulate and inspire the actors. Through improvisations the actors will practice being in the moment, working off of each other and bringing their own depth and truth to the characters and stories they are portraying. The class should feel like a rehearsal process rather than a performance so the actors are free to explore and discover without pressure. Most of the improvisations will be short-format as the average film scene is no longer than 2-3 minutes.
Included in this workshop Sheila will also give an overview of how the acting markets function in America-mainly NYC and LA. There are many ways actors can prepare and become familiar with the American market in anticipation of visiting and we will touch on all of those.
