Cinematic culture / acting for screen - theory and practice

Arts are essential in an individual's personal development. Some people find their way alone, and some have to opportunity to be guided, encouraged and pushed by someone who has been in the industry for years.
To be taking this kind of course with me will consist in laying a strong foundation of knowledge in domains such as literature, performing arts and cinema, equaled by practice.
However, considering that I will be working with young people, I will not bring to my class rules and techniques. Everyone has different interests and strengths and I intend to discover it, dig into and flourish their specific needs.
Each student will have their own personalized schedule / training.

About Me

My name’s Andra, I’m a bilingual actor who speaks both English and Romanian. Based in London. I have an Undergraduate degree in Drama with Film from University of London, Royal Holloway, as well as eighteen years of industry experience.

Originally a child actor, I started my career on-screen at the age of five, working with some of the biggest names in Romanian cinema. At the age of eighteen, I was awarded Best Actress at the Locarno International Film Festival for ‘Alice T’ (2018) - a feature length film from a leading figure of the Romanian New Wave, Radu Muntean.

Unwilling to rest on my laurels, I moved to the UK in search of new challenges. I have found these in a diverse range of work, such as the VR documentary celebrating neurodiversity ‘With Grace’ (2022) and commercial work for brands such as Asus, as well as a host of award-winning short films. I’m looking to continue this trajectory with exciting, ambitious projects, with the hope of establishing a tribe of longer-term collaborators.

✅THE ART OF IMPROVISATION, CREATIVITY, PUBLIC SPEAKING, COMMUNICATION, THEATRALIZATION: COMMUNICATE WITH RHETORIC, ELOQUENCE
✓ Improvisation is the art of composing within the framework of a role play, without being overplayed so as not to lose credibility, by taking pleasure and appearing convinced (because communication does not consist, for example, of having confidence, but of appearing confident). It helps with a wide range of skills (imagination, emotional faculties, physical expressiveness, vocal projection, clarity of speech, interpretation, improvisation, observation, emulation, stage combat...) to make public speaking, communication , theatricalization enhanced by the stage space and the play of the actor - improviser, during speeches or presentations for example. ✓ Your inventiveness, singularity, commitment and signature being at the center of this training, it is about giving you the techniques to improvise, create, stage, while showing confidence and conviction to your interlocutors, in the private sphere or of the professional. ✓ So how can you also confront your shyness or lack of (relative) self-confidence by surpassing yourself by moving forward? ➤ Express yourself with your body, your emotions, your ideas to mobilize your abilities and your creative energy ➤ Explore your path to personal expression in complete freedom and security by overcoming your fears of expressing yourself in public ➤ Activate flexibility of mind, particularly by practicing active listening ➤ Develop your creativity and imagination while overcoming your shyness, developing your speaking, listening and responding skills ➤ Anchor lasting resources such as letting go, leaving one's comfort zone thanks to a caring framework and personalized modules/exercises For example (but the sessions/modules cover other aspects), to improve your skills during oral interventions in public (debates, media, speeches, 1 to 1, etc.), better manage your personal communication/ professional & the resulting conflicts, master negotiation techniques (...): your objectives in terms of communication may be diverse and the objective of these sessions is precisely to support you to better achieve them. So, how can we send a clear message, be impactful, create a difference and make an impact? ➤ Whether your objective is personal or professional, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, relying on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction), an emotion and above all techniques, tools, a method, a know-how, reflecting the speaker's involvement in his speech where the art of improvisation is essential. ➤ On the telephone, in a meeting, in front of a client, his family (...), relevant and successful speaking must always be effective and efficient, with clear, simple and impactful messages, creating a balance between the message received and message sent. Coherence between form and content. The important thing in communication is not the confidence we have in ourselves, but the appearance of confidence we exude. It’s also not about being structured or coherent but simply about appearing to be so. And to do this, there are targeted tools. ➤ So, how do you listen and be listened to, convince/persuade and be impactful, challenge and leave an impression, enhance your content, address your audience relevantly and optimize the quality & clarity of the exchange/message? It is precisely a question of going through, applying and deploying practical and effective techniques of oral presentation, simple intervention or 'one to one' exchange, aiming to challenge one's audience or interlocutor, taking care of both the content and the form. , all in a professional or personal setting. Here again, there is a range of precise verbal and non-verbal communication techniques which, once modernized and brought up to date, will be put to the service of your reality. Allowing you to move from fear to pleasure in front of the public. ➤ Thus, mastered, the practical method allows, through a set of simulations and scenarios based on your daily experience supporting pragmatic & concrete techniques, to improve self-confidence, self-assurance, ease by overcoming discomfort and controlling his emotion in public. But also to work on your leadership & charisma, in a context where empathy and emotional intelligence are at the service of communication. ➤ So, in this context, after having precisely defined your objective & gone through the blockages encountered, here are some examples of themes covered through concrete techniques & a targeted methodology, in support of improvisation skills: ✓Practical tools to perfect your rhetoric/repartee ✓Decode and use the practical communication tools of great leaders ✓Fundamentals (practices) of eloquence but also of oratorical art (intonation, gaze, gestures, elocution, range, emotions, pronunciation, development of one's own style of charisma, etc.) to ensure consistency between content and the form ✓Fundamentals of Body Language to support and not interfere with the speech while being convinced & convincing. ✓ Highlighting their speech & promoting their speaking to arouse interest, by building on their strengths. ✓Creation of a coherence between the message emitted & the message received in order to improve its speech and in fact, its professional/personal relations. ✓Management of Q&A sessions & external reactions during an intervention or an oral exchange. ✓Practical tools to put your interlocutor at ease and appear friendly/interested. ✓To succeed in a negotiation/mediation. ✓On the one hand, learning to say 'no' simply in three steps AND on the other hand, getting people to say 'yes'. ✓To turn sentences into positive AND constructive. ✓To manage conflicts (eg 'assertive' communication techniques, eg CNV techniques - Non Violent Communication). ✓To put NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) at the service of communication. ✓To adopt effective, simple, fair and engaging language. ✓To use sentences, turns of phrase & expressions allowing to be precise, simple, effective & challenging. ✓To manage your personal & professional relationships with, for example, the preparation of your ratings. ✓Make your hypersensitivity a strength to tame your abilities. ✓Listening proactively and expressing / conveying ideas / message clearly. ✓Avoid letting your emotions show and propose a constructive solution to problems, while drawing on your own relational skills. ✓Be better equipped to recognize and immediately remedy situations that weaken their authority and affect their ability to communicate effectively. ✓Enhance their potential for expression and creativity (often underestimated until now) and 'apparent' sociability ✓Develop not necessarily self-confidence, but the 'appearance' of self-confidence, refine one's listening to respond adequately, open up to the resources of the imagination, free oneself from the rational to then structure one's speech. ✓Relate their communication objectives (project, institution, values, ideas, demands, etc.) to the form of their expression. ✓Learn and put into practice persuasive communication techniques and better understand the perception that others have of oneself. In order to improve his skills of 'self-presentation' and conveyed image. ✓Practical techniques to foster the engagement of the other party. ✓Strengthen the structure of its communication and develop a convincing argument in order to sell its ideas and projects. ✓ Optimizing internal and external relationships are professional fundamentals so that the structure of sessions, business dialogue and mastery of change communication are valuable. (...) ➤ In short, improvisation, dramatization, public speaking skills are today essential transversal skills for asserting oneself, informing, negotiating and convincing. However, to master the keys to successful public communication, it is necessary to strengthen the impact of one's own speeches: by structuring one's interventions and taking into account the circumstances and expectations of the public; by making an impact through storytelling; integrating the psychological and emotional factors of effective oral communication; by integrating emotions into the preparation of the message and arguments; anticipating objections and delicate situations; by preparing and structuring an attractive and convincing presentation framework; by experimenting with the rules of improvisation; by adequately managing difficult situations (...). ➤ In short, each session combines techniques & practical exercises adapted to your everyday situations (filmed with your agreement in order to be reviewed, commented on, decoded together live, to have an external perspective and areas for improvement) , so that you will be able to apply them immediately, and from the first session. THE TRAINER ➤ With training from Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher trainer has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years in the field, in Europe and North America, in renowned international public and private establishments, regularly speaking in forums and conferences, and also offering personalized INDIVIDUAL support, with pedagogy and careful methodology as the watchwords. ➤ PLACE, TIMETABLE, PRICES ✓ Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Fribourg-Zurich-Neuchâtel-Lugano-Montreux-Basel-Neuchâtel-Bern-Lucerne-Brussels-Luxembourg-Paris-Lyon. But currently, these sessions continue to be offered by videoconference in the current context and in accordance with general demand which is almost unanimous on this subject. ✓ Indeed, apart from the classic advantages of videoconferencing (time saving related to travel & their unforeseen events, eco-responsibility, increased schedule flexibility, etc.), the quality of the session & the interaction remain identical. In addition, the entire exchange, notes and recommendations are immediately transcribed on the dedicated chat. ✓ To support us among ourselves & to be pleasant to you in this sustainable / particular period and in a spirit of solidarity, the fees are temporarily reduced and will not increase after the start of our sessions. ✓ Languages: French/English. ✓ The progress following these private sessions is perceptible from 1 to 2 sessions (*2024 study). ✓ As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round.

These theoretical training and practical training sessions (story structure, voice, memory, diction, management of stage fright, etc.). It is a question of going through the history of the tale (origin, different styles of tale, difference between tale and story), the art of telling (work on the voice, the body, the imagination), the tale and the child (importance of the story for the overall development of the child, resource of the imagination, difference between reading and telling) ...: in short, the intention of this course is to make you want even more, to better tell stories Open to all those interested in the story (parents, teachers, animators, educators ...), these sessions can also be offered to the person of your choice.

The Book Club and Maths Club Chronicles: A Journey Through Stories and Numbers
Experience the best of both worlds in this engaging class that combines the joys of a book club with the challenges of a maths club. Students will participate in lively discussions about their favorite books, exploring themes and characters in novels like "Harry Potter." Imagine debating the strategies used by the heroes, then switching to solve real-time math problems like calculating the time it takes Harry to reach Hogwarts. This integrated approach promotes critical thinking and creativity, as students analyze stories and collaborate on mathematical puzzles, helping them excel in both reading and maths. This integrated approach doesn’t stop there. Imagine a group project where you design a budget for a fictional event from your book, balancing costs for decorations, food, and entertainment, thereby applying practical maths skills in a creative context. Or, consider solving logic puzzles that parallel the mysteries faced by your favorite characters, enhancing both your problem-solving abilities and your enjoyment of the narrative. In this class, i will teach how the analytical skills children develop in maths enhance your understanding of literature, and how the creativity you cultivate through reading enriches your approach to mathematical problems.

'Acting for Camera' A personalised session programme with Craig.
Every actor is unique and every session will be tailored to your individual needs. What I bring is an enthusiasm and experience of acting in front of a camera. After an initial one hour session to get to know each other and learn what you want to achieve, I will devise a lesson plan exclusively for you. We will work remotely on whatever you are comfortable with. Be it rehearsing a self-tape for audition purposes, creating and devising a new idea for screen, or developing skills for acting in front of the camera, we will reach your goals. I'm very focused on the individual. This will all be about you. If you are a beginner we can start with basic technique and take an exciting journey together to fulfillyour potential. If you are experienced, we can polish your skills with the use of an outside eye. Learning new techniques to add to your skill set. If you are a professional actor needing help with preparation for self-tapes, I can rehearse with you and offer helpful direction. I will also record with you if required. I've had a varied career working with great directors, Steven Speilberg and Christopher Nolan and screen greats such as Tom Hanks. As a teacher and colleague you are casting me. Look me up. Im genuinely looking forward to working with you. Craig
