Acting for Camera for Theatre Actors

You love performing on stage where your live story reaches many people in a large theatre. Now you want to be able to express the same story more intimately. On camera. The action is not about BIG acting versus SMALL acting. It is about expanded truth and contained truth. It is about commitment and servitude to the writing and your character.

Join Trilby Jeeves’ acting workshop and experience an in person acting icebreaker/introduction to online scene study with a partner to a live camera taping.

All precautions for physical distancing and proper hygiene will be in place. You will be assigned a scene and expected to prepare for the online rehearsals.

The class is limited to 10 people so pre-registration and pre-payment is required.

• 9:30 to 12:30 – July 9 – In person introduction
• Two virtual classes over the next two weeks.
• July 23 – In Studio session (time tbd)

$80 +HST (or for FilmPEI members pay what you wish)

Contact info@filmpei.com to register and find out our payment options.

Trilby Jeeves is an actor, director, instructor, and writer from Vancouver. She is the only English student to be theatrically trained in her second language at “Le Conservatoire d'Art Dramatique” in Quebec City. She went on to perform and direct in both languages across Canada. As well as performing up to 40 plays, including her own one woman show, “Dusty Shoes”, she worked for 34 years off and on as a set costumer/supervisor in the theatre and film industry.

For 12 years she has facilitated her Buffoonery Workshops for actors and also for non-actors in the private sector or as a public workshop. Her course is part of the curriculum in the one year acting program at Vanarts, and each term the directing students at Vancouver Film School get a taste of her class. Together with colleague Peter D. Marshall, Trilby also created directing workshops to help young/first time directors. Trilby has just wrapped directing her first short film, The Rolling Pin. She is passionate about helping people play and realize their energetic potential for their creative work. See www.buffooneryworkshops.com for more information.
