NEW IMAGE COLLEGE’S PHILIP GRANGER TEACHES A MASTER CLASS IN ACTING.
New Image College Acting Department Head, actor, producer and director Philip Granger led a master film acting workshop at the Okanagan Film Fundamentals symposium this past weekend in West Kelowna. There was a lot of excitement to have award winning actor Philip Granger come to Kelowna and share his wealth of experience on film acting with the theatre actors who live in the interior of BC. Participants came from as far away as Calgary, Sorrento B.C., Clearwater B.C. etc.. to hear him speak. Philip Granger also hosted the opening night gala for the Okanagan Film Commission which included guest icon director Vic Sarin, and other major producers, film distributors, and heads of television networks present.
Granger led participants of workshop through a series of chekhov body acting exercises and film acting essentials. The workshop was sold out in half an hour. And was an amazing success.
“It was amazing to see the transformation in the actors. I was invited to teach a master acting workshop in Kelowna for the Okanagan Film Commission. The focus was on the body. In this exercise, through the power of movement you discover truthful characters. This fine theatre actress, who is elegant and poised created a person that was the polar opposite of herself. Beautiful”. Granger, Philip.
