« Looking for truth and finding reality, that’s the job of an actor »
The internship allows actors to deepen the techniques of comedy applied to cinema and to tame the camera, using the techniques of Lee Strasberg, Sandy Meiser and Eta Hagen, we know how to adapt to each the method which is the most profitable for him. We choose in particular the most appropriate aspects for each one.
Being an actor and being a good actor is a matter of choice. Every moment we make choices. Our work is a reflection of the choices we make when we create a character and its universe. We have less and less rehearsal time before a shoot, so it's all in the preparation. The internship will help you find the tools that are useful for everyone in front of the camera. The Master Class focuses on the choices that will best serve the actors in front of the camera.
The goal of the internship is to help the actor find the tools that suit him the most by developing the body, the imagination, the emotional and physical availability, the commitment and the discipline. How to work generously for yourself and others. The course will also be an opportunity to immerse yourself in game techniques without stakes. Know yourself better to find the truth of the game. The purpose of this Master Class is to help the actor develop this ability.
The internship is a laboratory of play. We don't judge, we give constructive criticism, we don't compare, we observe, we don't seek the result, we explore, we fall, we get up, we redo, we learn and we work, and with others because cinema is teamwork!
We also improvise! Because improvising, cannot be improvised! Juliette Tresanini, who learned everything in Quebec, will come and teach you the basics to improvise in all circumstances. From the construction of the character through the work of scenic improvisation, the exercises it brings will add a string to your bow: that of being a scriptwriter of your own interpretation. Your acting will thus gain in flexibility and freedom.
And all that with joy, because life is hard enough as it is. You don't need to suffer to create, being an actor is called playing...like a child - the best actors in the world! The best work can be done in joy, and that's when you'll have the confidence to take the risks and go into the tough, fragile places.

MASTERCLASS OF THE INDEPENDANT ACTOR

Dates: 13 March - 25 March 2023
Number or Participants: 18
This is where everything begins; to know youself, to improve your weaknesses, to accentuate your strengths and above all to master the technique of being in front of the camera.
Elise Mc Leod, a renowned acting coach, will guide you with her with personalized feedback and advice so that you can become an independent actor.
Your photo is the first step to catching the attention of a casting director.
Our casting directors are here to enlighten you on this and give you expert feedback, sincere and specific about your screen test that will be valuable to you throughout your career.
We are not always aware of our image, our ‘type’, our how to chose the right photos or images for our showreels, this course also provides feedback on these issues.
FILM / TV DIRECTORS
After working with the coach and the casting directors you will work with several film & TV directors. A professional cameraman is there to film and take sound which is linked to a monitor for the rest of the actors and the director to watch. It’s great way to be able to be directed in a fun environment where you can take risks, play and yet have the technical and emotional direction needed to be good on set.
At end of the three weeks we organize CMA’s famous Speed-Meeting event that will allow you to meet face to face with professionals from all film domains this includes; producers, directors, screenwriters, casting directors & agents.
Before the event, actors go through an intensive preparation learning how to pitch themselves whilst staying natural and feeling comfortable.
We have had a huge success rate with actors booking castings, jobs and agents after this evening.
The speed-meeting is followed with drinks, food and a party.
