Workshop for Actors and Directors
Dominique De Fazio
KEY SKILLS to work in FILM and THEATRE
There are certain basic abilities required of actors who wish work professionally in theatre and film.
This January, Dominique De Fazio has been invited to Argôt Studio to conduct workshops on two KEY ABILITIES that can impact an actor’s career immediately.
Enter a scene
Come Stabilire il “Contesto” for a Scene with one’s entrance In teatro e in cinema
12th and 13th January 2018
When a character enters a scene, whether entering a scene on stage, or entering a frame in film, the character is coming from somewhere. Life does not begin with what the pubic sees, but continues into the sight of the public.
On the stage, professional actors are expected to be able to give us a sense that the life of the character extends off-stage, beyond the limits of the palcoscenico. In film, professional actors are expected to be able to give us a sense of the environment from which one has immediatley come, and the flow of time.
In this workshop, Dominique De Fazio clarify how an actor can prepare for entrances, and what the actor needs to bring onto the stage (or into a shot) at the moment of an entrance. Dominique De Fazio will also clarify the kind of training that one can do to excel in this ability. Each day of the workshop, all participants will do training exercises. For the demonstrations and work to be done from selected scenes, volunteers will be taken.
Continuity in Film Acting
13th and 14th January 2018
To work in film and television, an actor must be aware of his/her responsibility to make choices that contribute to the etablsihment of Continuità Narrativa nello Svolgimento di un Film.
In this workshop, Dominique De Fazio will clarify the key moments where the actor can create links to other shots, the sense of time and pasage of time, and the continuity of an emotional experience, so that even though a scene is shot in many pieces, it can be edited into a single, flowing narrative event.
Dominique De Fazio will also clarify the kind of training that one can do to excel as a film/television actor. Each day of the workshop, all participants will do training exercises. For the demonstrations and work to be done from selected screenplays, volunteers will be taken.

Dicono di lui:
"LO STUDIO ‘DE FAZIO’ PER ME È UN LUOGO PER DISCUTERE APERTAMENTE DEI PROBLEMI CREATIVI CHE AFFRONTIAMO COME ARTISTI. - IL LAVORO SULLA VOCE IN PARTICOLARE È MOLTO IMPORTANTE PER ME E LO CONSIGLIO VIVAMENTE A QUALSIASI CANTANTE / ATTORE CHE VUOLE ESSERE AFFASCINATO DALLE INFINITE POSSIBILITÀ CHE LA VOCE UMANA POSSIEDE PER COMUNICARE.”
– T. GURA, CANTANTE LIRICA
“DOMINIQUE DE FAZIO NON HA MAI RISPOSTO A UNA DELLE MIE DOMANDE SULLA CREATIVITÀ. MI GUIDA IN MONDI NEI QUALI PROVO RIVELAZIONI, IN PRIMA PERSONA, SU DOMANDE CREATIVE, CHE NON SAPEVO NEANCHE DI AVERE. HO IMPARATO COME IL MODO DI DOMANDARE POSSA ESSERE LA RISPOSTA IN SÉ. IO DIVIDO LA MIA CARRIERA COME ARTISTA E IL MIO MODO DI VEDERE LA RELAZIONE TRA ARTE E VITA IN 'PRIMA DE FAZIO' E 'DOPO DE FAZIO'.”
– E. HESSE, ATTORE
