AMERICAN DIALECT - don't rely on your ear! Will your accent stand up to audition nerves and film set pressure? Does your accent stand the test of a highly charged emotional scene? Is your accent truly authentic or do you fluke it? Screenwise has created an extraordinary dialect workshop uniquely designed to give the actor that edge when auditioning for American Film and TV Productions. At Screenwise, we teach actors the vocal gymnastics needed to obtain an authentic American accent. If you are serious about working as an actor, an American accent is a critical skill that you must develop – and retain. An accent takes considerable time, commitment and muscle memory to learn. Which is why our American accent workshop takes place each week for two hours over a period of six consecutive weeks. Leading dialogue coach Katherine Poulsen will train actors in every aspect of American accent including: * Phonetics – the shape of mouth, position of tongue, placement of voice * Muscle memory – through repetition, weekly exercises and pre-class preparation * Monologue and 2-hander scene work as actors learn to ‘embody the character with an accent’ and not ‘play the accent’ * Performances are recorded on DVD, analysed and refined in class Incorporating phonetics and camera that will run over two hours per class, one class per week for 6 weeks - making it the hottest U.S. Dialect Workshop around. The American Accent workshop works exclusively on Standard American accent which is the most popular in overseas productions.
