Masterclass Part I & II (In-Person/Berlin)
Eric’s classes are tailored for the seasoned professional looking to sharpen their skill set and the trained actor transitioning into film & television. They’re designed to address the paradox that puzzles actors of every level of experience: namely, that being a good actor doesn’t itself lead to being an employed actor, or to landing better roles.
The root of the problem is that most acting training emphasizes the actor’s ability to take the words on the page and transform them into a character with a rich and deep emotional life. All of which is extremely important. But without a clear understanding of how the camera works and the specific requirements of working in front of it, ultimately ineffective.
That’s because a film is a sequence of images that tells a story, and in order to tell that story, the actor must put emphasis on the objectivity of events, not the subjectivity of feelings. To bridge that gap, Eric’s classes focus on decoding scripts for film and television and how to best craft them in front of the camera.
Eric Reis is a New York City acting coach who specializes in on-camera work. His list of clients includes multiple Emmy, Tony, Screen Actors Guild, Drama Desk, Drama League, and Teen Choice Award winners and nominees, in addition to established actors who have performed leading and supporting roles in dozens of studio films, television series and hit Broadway shows. He served as the on-set acting coach for several high-profile projects and now provides on-set coaching, audition preparation and ongoing training for qualified actors in New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin.
Working with him gave my acting career a boost. I book bigger roles in tv series and my work on set is at ease and in flow. Making self tapes is so much more fun and effective as well.Eric has deep knowledge and eye for what works on camera and what doesn’t. He makes it so simple, it completely shifted my look on it. He shares his knowledge about storytelling and how you can create the story in the frame with your instinct and authenticity. You are being filmed in the workshop; you see your work back on screen and that is so valuable. And last but not least, Eric is such a gentle, inspiring, respectful teacher. He really cares about you. Don’t miss this opportunity!!!” – Elisa Van Riessen (Actress)
