Level I & II (In-Person/Berlin)

Eric Reis is an acting coach who’s been helping actors elevate their careers for the past 10 years. His approach is simple: he believes that being a great actor is good, but being a working actor is better – and, as many talented actors who struggle to find employment know, one does not always translate into the other.

The essence of the problem is that traditional acting training focuses on 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 are extremely important. But without a clear understanding of how to apply those skills to the specific requirements of working in front of the camera, ultimately ineffective.

That’s because a film is a sequence of events that tells a story, so the actor needs to look at scripts through the objectivity of events, not the subjectivity of feelings. In this 2-day workshop, Eric will walk you through how to decode scripts for film and television and how to best craft them in front of the camera.

About Eric: Eric’s students work in leading and supporting roles in both studio films and television series in major networks, including HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Disney, AMC, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, TNT, CW, USA, Showtime, Cinemax, and Comedy Central, in addition to leading roles in the Broadway productions of Mean Girls, A Bronx Tale, and many others. They have received the Screen Actor’s Guild Award, the Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Awards,  in addition to Drama League and Teen Choice Awards nominations. He has served as the on-set acting coach for several high-profile projects, and teaches on-camera acting classes online, in the US and in Europe.

If you are looking for a workshop to improve your skills in on-camera acting, Eric Reis is the one to go to. 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)
