In conjunction with the Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center’s popular JxJ Film and Music Festival, Theater J offers this class in appreciating and evaluating on-screen acting. Master teacher Naomi Jacobson, an award-winning actress and nominator for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, guides us through the performance techniques that we can see on the silver screen. You’ll screen three online narrative films as you dissect and study terrific performances in a friendly discussion-based environment. This class aims to transform your experience of the cinema.
As a participant in one of Jacobson’s past classes has said, “If anybody has opportunity to study with Naomi Jacobson, I would recommend that they rush without delay.”
Please note: Students will need to purchase a special film pass to JxJ to access the required viewings. Information will be sent to students after registering.
