Third, each student will have three minutes with Juan Pablo, one-on-one, to present his/her materials (reel if you have one, headshot, and resume). English- and Spanish-speaking actors welcome.

"Menos es Más" (Spanish for "Less is More") is an Acting and Directing for the Camera workshop that consists of three (3) student directors and nine (9) actors.
Together, actors and directors will shoot three (3) scenes over the course of five (5) days, with a professional director of photography. Scenes are then edited and screened for an in-depth critique by Juan Pablo Félix, the instructor. Woven into the practice are various discussions and lectures that invite the professional to further explore his/her technique. Professionals walk away feeling challenged and better prepared to work collaboratively on set.
This course is open to all levels. For more information on Juan Pablo Félix, please refer to his bio in the announcement above.
