DEGNZ was glad to bring The Rehearsal Room to Christchurch for the first time last month, especially considering the fantastic talent that came along.
Directors Hugh Mitton, Steph Harris, Gillian Ashurst and Louise Leitch joined actors Nic Farra, David Allen, Julian Anderson, Jos Hoetjes, Lizzie Tollemache, Mike Adams, Susannah Kenton and Dan Bain for a day of practising their craft and work-shopping film scenes from both original and popular film scripts.
We asked them what they thought was the best thing about the Rehearsal Room:
“The opportunity to practise craft with actors in safe, playful environment. It can be a ‘long time between drinks’
“This was a unique opportunity to put my screenplay dialogue to the test. It was great to hear the lines coming alive with really talented actors, playing my characters”
“The chance to work intimately with a director and evolve our scene over 2 hours”
A warm thank you to everyone who joined us and a special thank you to Springsouth Agency who helped us with getting such fantastic acting talent on board!
