“I didn’t know anything about acting until I attended Playhouse West. I had so much fun there, and learned the variables to solve any equation that might be given to me in a script.” ~ Ashley Judd
The Biopic Project is designed to push the serious actor out of his comfort zone by offering him the opportunity to portray an iconic public figure. There is a fine line between a truthful portrayal and a cliche impersonation, and this project provides the actor with legitimate tools that allows for him to confidently go through a step by step process, in order to build a character from the inside out. During this intensive course, each actor will play an iconic public figure of their choosing, starting by selecting a significant moment in time of that person’s life.
This is an advanced characterization intensive course.
