The Acting Zone is a one-shot video created for a mid-term project in my Acting for the Camera class at the Savannah College of Art and Design
I was the Director of the project, and I wrote the dialogue for the scenes involving the character Michael Roach.
The other students with me were my friends John and Francisco, who filled in the roles of the other characters.
The video was meant to represent and explain information we had learned from chapters 11-14 of Tony Barr's book "Acting for the Camera," and we had to boil down the concepts from all 4 chapters into a single idea. So I chose to explain it all with one scene that we recited from a movie, The Dark Knight. And we performed the scene in two ways: once, as poorly and unconvincingly as we could; and then as best as we possibly could, going as far as to recreate the setting, the lighting, and the costumes.
