On camera class

A high energy class where we examine the language of the camera - what works and what doesn't. We will cover audition technique, private moments, as well as scene study. I will be introducing new techniques every class; the emphasis is on empowering the actor to find their own specific Creative Individuality, and to show up on set and in the audition rooms with the confidence to make bold, daring choices and to be present and available to your partner and director.

"A brilliant acting mentor who brings a unique spin to Uta Hagen and your own organic process. A teaching style that pushes the fourth wall and breaks the rules of acting. The results in training under Bill MacDonald are raw, honest and connected performances delivered from start to finish." -Patrick W.
