From Boris Karloff and Haruo Nakajima to Doug Jones and Andy Serkis, the tradition of extreme character performance or “Creature Performance” is a difficult and nuanced art that can be riveting and beautiful as it is complex and strenuous.
Armed with the tools learned in Beast Mode 1 & 2, Beast Mode: 3 deep dives into those complexities of creature performance. Performers will work on Extreme Gate Analysis (Specialized Creature Walks), Instinctual Theory and how it relates to not only character performance but (Mocap and Practical) “Rig” movement.
Scenes and exercises performed in this class will stress the skills necessary to hone and master your art and in turn your career as an actor of some of the world’s most celebrated and memorable characters.
