Ed Hooks will teach a one-day acting for animators class in San Francisco
on September 25, from 10 am-5 pm. The class will include thinking-emotion
connections, thinking-physical action connections, character analysis,
basic acting principles (the scene as a negotiation) and improvisations.
Also, there will be discussion of shadow movement, psychological gesture,
the "look" of memory, eye contact between characters, the importance of
empathy and how to achieve it. Clips from Charlie Chaplin movies will be
screened to make object lessons. Ed Hooks, who has taught acting to
animators at PDI, OddWorld Inhabitants, Mondo Media, Filmakademie
Baden-Worttenberg, among other places, also teaches professional-level
acting classes to actors and is the author of two books on acting.
Heinemann will publish his new book, ACTING FOR ANIMATORS, next year.
Tuition is $125. For more information contact Hooks at email@example.com
Class enrollment is limited to fifteen.
