Toronto Acting Agency – Toronto Talent Agency – Tip Tuesday – Screen Acting Tips

If you are used to acting in theatre, it may take a few adjustments when switching to screen acting.  Acting in front of a camera requires its own set of skills which is usually developed over time and with experience. However, the following tips will help you to get on the right path. 

Toronto acting agency – Toronto talent agency – Tip Tuesday – Screen acting tips

1. Show Expression Through Your Eyes

The camera captures every detail and your eyes convey your thoughts, your feelings, your internal struggles, and your physical impulses. The closer the frame, the stronger the focus. 

2. Think of Silences as Lines

Film/TV will include reaction shots. Show your character’s reaction in every moment including during another character’s lines and silences. The editor will be looking for reaction shots post-production, so this will increase your screen time!

3. Understand the Audience

As opposed to theatre, your audience is not present while you are performing. Remember that you still have an audience, and it is not the film crew that is around you. Perform for your audience, not the crew.

4. Be Flexible

Schedule changes happen all the time with weather conditions, technical difficulties, transport issues, and the list go on. Be prepared for it, especially for your character. Do not be one of the reasons for the schedule to be late. Be prepared to get it right in the first few takes, and be flexible to the director’s wants. 

5. Learn the Language of the Set

Be aware of who does what on the set and learn the jargon that they use. This will make you easier to work with as you will not have to ask around all the time. It is respectful of everyone’s role on set.

Toronto Talent Agency – Toronto Acting Agency -Talent Spotlight – Adam R.

This week’s Talent Spotlight is MAX Toronto talent, Adam R.

Toronto Talent Agency – Toronto Acting Agency – Adam R.
Adam got involved with entertainment since his first school play in Grade 3. He was the lead, and his aunt was the only one who was able to see it. Her rave review of his performance solidified his aspirations to become an actor. 
 
He went through the Second City Conservatory Program in 2004, then performed stand-up comedy and sketch comedy around the GTA with his old troupe ‘Clambake’. He even hosted his own stand-up series on GogecoTV23 in Burlington for one season.

‘I really started to focus on my acting career in 2015, starting off volunteering in film school projects and an episode of Paranormal Survivor, eventually getting my first commercial for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese after my first audition. My friend saw it play in a movie theatre in LA. If you’ve ever seen the commercial where the dad jumps into a bounce castle and it deflates on him? That’s me! I dislocated my shoulder on the first attempt and didn’t tell anybody. Popped it back in myself. I am a professional! ;)’
 
Since then, Adam has been in commercials for Reese’s, American Express, and Labatt, corporate videos for Home Depot and CNN, and voice work for CBC Kids and Nickelbrook Brewery.

A few years ago, Adam returned to school at 39 years old, and last year graduated from Sheridan College with a diploma in Visual and Creative Arts.
 
‘I have always been interested in animation, and have been learning to create my own cartoons online. I hope to one day be a consistently working actor. If I can make a sustaining career out of doing what I love, I would be thrilled. Being on set, working things out, and making the crew laugh is home to me.
 
In my spare time I love to cook! I cure and smoke my own bacon, brine entire chickens with exciting and experimental recipes, and make a pulled pork so coveted by my family they get mad when I don’t give them any!’
