   Aloha. With the newly created Maui Film Studio in the works, the future for Maui based actors has improved quite a bit!   Film companies will be looking for LOCAL TALENT to fill some roles and in the words of George Lucas (para phrasing)  "I spend millions on special effects, but if the actors on camera don't give me a good performance, it's a waste of money."
    I say:  "It's wonderful to have special effects. But it's vital to have special actors who have a special effect on a viewing audience."

ON CAMERA CLASSES ARE INCREDIBLE TOOLS of FEEDBACK

  The following topics are what you will be working on in front of the camera, then reviewing your acting choices . . . every class to become,  as I repeatedly say:
"A self-directed actor."
  • Slating techniques and interviews in the casting phase, because 60% of 1st callbacks result 
    from effective slating 
  • Cold reading, cold reading...cold reading...because 60% of 2nd call backs are judged by the skilled 
    cold reading technique and acting choices.
  • Reactions on camera...
  • Running lines with a scene partner...while ....cold reading! 
  • Making acting choices 
  • On-set behavior  
  • Learning some basics about how to evaluate one's work.
