Updates from The Rehearsal Room

This weekend we held our last Auckland Rehearsal Room workshop of 2014- and a fantastic day it was!

Directors Rowena Baines, Lucy Stonex, Miles Murphy and Zoe Macintosh joined Equity members Xavier Black, Kevin Keys, Alistair Browning, Colin Moy, Michelle Blundell, Damien Avery and Morgan Bradley 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 chance to explore ideas in a safe environment.”

“Seeing my script come alive with actors who were willing to go there.”

“Nutting things out with the actors. Understanding what language they need to hear to perform.”

“Meeting new people, learning new skills and having a play with no pressure of outcome.”

Our favourite quote of the day:

The Rehearsal Room offered an excellent opportunity to explore the scene, play, and collaborate. I highly recommend this process to develop skills and build language to work more effectively with directors and fellow actors”

A warm thank you to everyone who joined us!!
