Movement for Screen Masterclass
with Stephen Moynihan

About The Masterclass

Drawing on years of experience working as a movement director in theatre, TV and film, this screen movement masterclass is for for actors and performers looking to enrich the physical life of a character, with a specific focus on movement for screen and motion capture.

Using a combination of exercises to bring awareness to the mind-body connection, as well as somatic body work, Stephen will bring his vast experience to explore with you your own unique physicality so you can make conscious choices with your character work. You will then focus on psycho-physical connection, where impulse, imagination and inner/outer gesture are central to transformation and bring greater depth to your storytelling. This workshop is specifically for those actors with some previous experience.
