Whether it be aliens, zombies, or other humans, actors must suspend their disbelief and heighten their emotions when faced with threats that are other worldly, terrifying, and/or extremely distressing. Understanding the tools to build suspense is key; keeping the audience in a heightened state of alert is part of the job.

In this course we will challenge actors to incorporate existential threats from both the world around the character and the torment within them.
We will rework scenes from master directors like Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, Wes Craven, and John Carpenter.

We’re looking for some brave souls.
