On Screen Intimacy with Colin Budds valued at $545

All good drama is driven by the chemistry between characters. Writers manipulate this chemistry however, it is not sufficient for writers to simply have the characters tell us about the chemistry, the characters need to show us to take us on the journey. Intimacy is part of that chemistry and possibly the most enduring frequent driver in drama. Drama uses many different types and levels of intimacy; from a first kiss through to sexual abuse.

On set, as an actor, you are asked to convincingly deliver intimate scenes as described in the script. There are many protocols as set down by many and various interested parties. The ADG, MEAA, SPAA, PDGA and the list goes on. There are on set protocols. There are fees tied to exposure levels.

You've asked yourself the questions:

Do you think what is on the page is worthy, gratuitous or downright exploitative?
Will it benefit you as an actor?
Once you have discussed the role at length with the creatives it is now up to you to actually do it. Deliver. That's where we come in.

This is a workshop where you control the script content; tame, funny, lusty, rough etc. We give you the opportunity to choose your partner and the environment; closed set if you wish*. We'll discuss and experiment with:

• Working it for the screen/camera/s
• Working it for laughs
• Working it so couples look at each other and wish that was them

The list goes on....

We all watch TV and go to the movies, this is about preparing, understanding and most of all about trust, not only your partner but yourself, trusting and being confident in yourself to deliver however you choose.

*There will be no nudity and we will discuss wardrobe requirements as this plays a major role in screen drama.
