SCADFILM presents directing workshop
Learn to elicit magical performances from your actors at this SCADFILM workshop, “Back to One: Directing the On-screen Actor,” on Thursday, July 20 at the Digital Media Center. A great director uses compelling language to lead an actor to a deeper, more dynamic vulnerability that captivates an audience. Through in-class exercises and scene work, you will gain insight into the acting process and understand how to break down a script to create engaged, organic and compelling characters.

Be a buddy to a new international student
SCAD student, faculty and staff volunteers are needed to help new international students make the transition to Atlanta and SCAD. The International Student Services Office is seeking “buddies” to help students in the SCAD Cultural and Academic Preparation Program that begins Thursday, July 27. Each buddy will be paired with a CAPP participant and serve as an informal resource and supportive friend throughout the four-week program. Activities may include meals, local activities, shopping and more. Current SCAD students, faculty and staff can apply to be a CAPP buddy by emailing Peter May at firstname.lastname@example.org.
