Recorded November 19 & 20 1988 This is about six hours of a twenty-four hour workshop. My work comes out of the workshop setting. This video is really a rich novel which gets more erotic and intimate as time peels away inhibitions and masks. Some of the characters in this novel are the diva who has a nervous breakdown, Carlos who is literally dying from AIDS as we filmed, a macho business tranny, a sexy film maker who puts her body into her art, etc. This is a raw epic of tribal intimacy!+ More details

In the DCT-ATG Volume of the Digital Cinema Filmmaker's Training Course we will be exploring the process of film acting, with our Acting Instructor and Coach, Stephen Heu. We will be preparing, rehearsing and performing a scene from Mr. Heu's unpublished script titled "THE CAMERA". Stephen will help you understand how to prepare the "wholeness" of a role prior to filming, where the actor has discovered, prepared the character, and is as ready as can be for any contingency. The DCT-ATG Actor's Training Guide will strive to grow a work-and-preparation ethic in you, help you learn your craft, illustrate how to find and interview an acting coach, and build a reputation that will serve you for many years. When you have worked and discovered and explored your character so that at any time, you can be prepared for whatever scene, whatever contingency as best as you can be. If you know how to prepare your character in such a way that you make it easy for the director, the DP and all the other actors, you'll inspire everyone. You'll be called back again and again to work. They will be glad to work with you. All the time. You will be the diamond in the rough: a star. Doesn’t matter the part, they will know you by your work ethic.

EMBODIED BRAINS AND SOCIAL MINDS – HOW EMPATHY AND PERSPECTIVE-TAKING SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF SELF Keynote by: Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, Ed.D. Associate Professor Brain and Creativity Institute Rossier School of Education Department of Psychology University of Southern California (USC) Mary Helen Immordino-Yang is an affective neuroscientist and human development psychologist with a research focus in the neural, psychophysiological and psychological bases of emotion, social interaction and culture and their implications for development and schools – she is all about understanding the role of social emotions. She is also a member of the Neuroscience Graduate Program faculty at the University of Southern California. Mary Helen was recently awarded the American Educational Research Association prestigious Early Career Award for 2014. Mary Helen works hands on with K-12 teachers and graduate students in the Rossier School of Education at USC to transfer her fMRI brain research into practice as it happens. Mary Helen argues that for her research to be complete she must find a way to partner with ethnographic researchers in the field, in the classroom, and on the ground where the real learning takes place. Theatre Educators and Theatre Artists working in the field of Theatre for Young Audiences, both in performance environments and in classrooms, are excited to join with our research colleagues in Social Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology in seeking greater understandings and outcomes for our children and teens in their quest to survive (self), to empathize (bond, socialize, master moral reasoning, belong), to achieve (education and culture), and to create (to move others to experience and understand new perspectives) in a rapidly expanding sociologically and technologically complex world. Sponsored by the Children’s Theatre Association of America. Keynote session presented in coordination with the American Alliance for Theatre & Education’s Annual National Conference, Denver, Colorado (August 1, 2014)+ More details
