On Camera One Starting August 5th

I've had to delay the start of On Camera I by one week. If you are curious but uncertain, come sit in on the first class and see what it is like - no obligation. As long as all attendees are in the Portland area, I am gonna try to have only the first class in person in a park - careful to social distance. I may still end up going with Zoom, though.

Ted

**On Camera Acting I - Via Zoom
7 Weeks
Limited to 10 Actors
Dates: August 5th - September 16th
Time: Wednesdays 6:30pm - 9:30pm
The total cost is $230 (Flexible payment options)

OC I is a great class for acting-curious and experienced theatre actor.
Beginning with improv and easing into scripted scene work, this is a relaxed,
fun approach to getting comfortable in front of the camera.
The objective of the class is to establish the foundations of a process that emphasizes
simply listening and talking - being "in your skin" - as opposed to in your head.
This is a great transitional class for theatre actors and an excellent foundational class for brand new actors.
All work is filmed, reviewed and discussed - time permitting.

A 100 dollar payment registers you. The deposit can be refunded up until 48 hours before the first class.
The rest of the payment is then due by the second class.
For payment, Venmo is preferred and Paypal is the second choice.
Venmo is via: 323-819-9622, or @tedrooney

I have had to postpone my On Camera I class, so it will be starting on Monday the 15th of June. The price has been reduced due to having one less class.
There are still audit spots left, if you wanna check out the first class without obligation.
Best.

Online Acting Class - April 29th

I will be hosting on Zoom my On Camera I acting class starting Wednesday the 29th of April. Drop me a note if you are interested, and know that your deposit saves your spot.

I realize it may seem weird to having an acting class online. But for "on camera" acting class, this venue actually works very well. I was teaching this class before Covid-19, and have worked out most of the kinks and find it to be very effective. However, I understand that this is a new way of doing things and it a bit of a mystery to most of you. So, if you are interested in taking this class but unsure about committing, come join the first class - no obligation - and see what you think. I have a few spots available for “auditors”. If you then find that you wanna take the class, and there are still spaces available, you can join the class at that point. Do make sure you reserve your audit spot in advance, though.

You don’t need to join Zoom to take the class and you don’t need any new software. You wanna have a solid internet connection with good bandwidth and a fairly well-lit room. It will work on smartphones as well as computers, but the best option involves you having both hands free. So, computers work best. If you wanna use your smartphone, I recommend getting a tripod or a holder of some sort. Below I have a photo of what I rigged for my phone.

Email me if you are thinking of joining or if you have any questions.

Cheers!

Ted

March 31st Online Class

Much has happened since I put out the ad below. The city is now on lockdown, and I have returned from Mexico with my family. We just got back yesterday, and I am needing to postpone this class for at least one week until Wednesday the 31st. So if you were interested before - but did not have the time - you may be able to join now. I have adjusted the dates in the ad. Now that I am back, when the government gives us the go ahead, I will be able to move the class into the studio.

Best.
Ted
------------------------------------------------------
Hey All. My first Zoom classes are going great. Figuring this online thing out has been a adventure - and so much fun. OC I from Mexico has been a blast. I am adding a new class on Wednesday nights starting the 31st of March.

To join - you need only a good internet connection, a fairly capable computer or smartphone, and a reasonably well lit room. You do not need to join Zoom.

The class may actually end up being face-to-face at my studio if it becomes safe to meet in person once again.

Online On Camera I - Wednesdays in March/April

Hey All. My first Zoom classes are going great. Figuring this online thing out has been an adventure - and so much fun. OC I from Mexico seems to work, and we have had a blast every Monday night. So, I am planning on adding a new class on Wednesday nights starting the 25th of March (or Possibly, April 1st).

Let me know if you wanna join. You need only a good internet connection, a fairly capable computer or smartphone, and a reasonably well lit room.

I won't be back for face-to-face classes until June, as we are stretching out our time here in Guanajuato as much as possible.

Cheers.
Ted

Online Class!

We are well settled in Guanajuato, Mexico. I have acquired a fast internet connection and have devised a working plan for teaching On-Camera One remotely. Starting February 24th.

Because this format of OC I is a first, I am reducing the cost greatly and allowing anybody to drop out if they decide they are not satisfied with what I am offering (however, I will provide a refund only for the classes that have not been attended). I will try to clarify the structure of the class here, but please call or text if you have any questions. I want everybody to know as much about what they are getting into as they can, and I want to ensure that it is a satisfying experience for all!

We will be using Zoom to hold full class meetings and one-on-ones (one of the advantages for you all is that we will have more one-on-one time than in a typical class). So, one of the first things you will need to do is get a Zoom account, which is free. We will have a “dry run” of the class to make sure that you are all hooked up satisfactorily with Zoom. I will designate that dry run time and date later, but it will likely be the night before the first class. You should be able to join us on your computer or your smart phone, but I will prefer for the first class that you are using a computer. We will seek to partner up and hopefully be able to get together with your partner once in the week. Naturally, if you are unable to meet in person (for example, if you are not in Portland), Skype or Zoom or another video option will be acceptable. If the classroom time diminishes, we will pick that up with one-on-ones with me, time I spend giving feedback and with partner working time. For the first class, expect the full three hour session. But from then on, I would guess two hours is more likely.

If you know someone that you would like to partner up with who might be interested in OC I, you might encourage them to join the class. In case there is an odd person out, we will look for a creative solution. One possibility is that I would partner up with that person. I also have friends locally in Portland who I know would be glad to help out with that.

I am also thinking of opening up the studio times to you all for rehearsal and filming scenes. Some of the logistics - like this last one - we will be figuring out as we go, but I will make sure that your training is not compromised. In some ways your learning may actually be enhanced by this format!

Once you sign up for the class, I will get you a list of things you need to prepare, including reading material and some rigging for your phone.

Again, this is my first time teaching in this format, so please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Let me know if anything is not clear to you!
