This course introduces students to vocal skills and techniques for text and spoken work. Students are introduced to a variety of articulatory techniques for enhanced clarity of spoken work. They subsequently negotiate processes for exploring sub textual meaning and kina textual qualities of spoken work prior to application in general voice over tasks in authentic recording environments. The acting classes for this course introduce students to the interpretive principles, approaches and skills for preparing screenplay scenes for performance to camera. In small student-crewed video shoots, participants negotiate the principle skills of acting for camera. The video recording process continues iteratively throughout the semester and is based on students occupying a rostered workflow of rehearsal, recording `shoots', post-production editing and reflective analysis to gain an all-round knowledge of the processual stages involved in producing performance work for digital delivery. Students will complete a series of authentic assessment tasks based on industry practice in digital performance training linked to real-world industry training experiences.
