Camera acting is a different beast to stage acting. Learn on-camera acting technique, what is expected of the actor upon arrival on set, and much more.
Join veteran film and television actor Darryl Cox as he offers his class Acting for the Camera at The Factory in an 8-week session on Thursday nights.
Cox has appeared in over 60 feature film and network television productions. He has more on-set and production experience than anyone else in Oklahoma and brings real-world, present-day knowledge to the classroom each week.
This past year, he booked roles in the feature films FELT (opposite Liam Neeson) and WILDLIFE (opposite Jake Gyllenhaal) among others. Some of his vast TV credits include DALLAS (both versions), IN PLAIN SIGHT, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, PRISON BREAK, NYPD BLUE and the Felicity Huffman series AMERICAN CRIME. Other feature film credits include PARKLAND, Terrence Malick’s TO THE WONDER, AMERICAN OUTLAWS, Clint Eastwood’s ARLINGTON ROAD, the classic film BOTTLE ROCKET and the original ROBO-COP.

The class will cover all aspects of on-camera acting in eight specific lessons. The many exercises will include hitting marks, continuity, eyeline, adjusting performance for the shot, and many more. The procedures of acting in a major film will also be covered, from the time the actor is cast, following the actor through wrap. Call sheets, contracts, pre-call expectations, the hierarchy of the set, how to read one-liner and Day out of Days schedules and more will be covered.
But most importantly, participants will be filmed in several on-set scenarios in a very active and upbeat classroom setting. Playback will be evaluated each week in class, followed by constructive critique from Cox; well-regarded as one of the most experienced on-camera actors in the region, and one of the most accomplished instructors of this craft.
The class is open to beginning or advanced actors aged 16 and up.
