Facial Performance
Students tackle the demanding task of facial acting in more detail. You

face works as a whole unit and shape, and how the small pieces play a
role in delivering subtle changes in the character's thoughts.

Instructors will dive deeper into facial acting, and demonstrate why
strong facial acting is important to infuse depth and personality into
your characters.
