Film Acting Seminar with Actor Larry Sharp

OPEN TO ALL TU STUDENTS. Theater and Film Studies students will receive priority if there is a demand larger than room capacity.

New York film and theatre actor Larry Sharp will present a two-day seminar on film acting, January 17-18, 2014. The seminar is open to all Film Studies and Theatre students (and faculty). He will cover pursuing a career in acting in the film business and preparing for auditions in film acting, and he will present specific techniques in film acting through interactive exercises. On Friday, January 17, the session will be at 2-6pm in LPC 2060. On Saturday, January 18, the session will be at 1-5pm in LPC Meinig Recital Hall. Students may attend as an observer or a participant. Participants must on the first day bring in a brief two-character scene unrehearsed and unmemorized - no long speeches or dialogues (this is essential for the purpose of the exercise). On day two, they should bring in one 3-4 minute monologue from auditions or performances that they have done and are intimately familiar with, or prepare a brief monologue especially for the class. All monologues should be from modern material and on the "dramatic" side. Participants will be filmed and will be able to receive immediate feedback through watching themselves on screen. This seminar essential not only for actors, but also for student filmmakers who will work with actors.

 If interested in attending, please let Ashley Etter ( in Film Studies know whether you plan to attend as an observer or as a participant.
