About the Course
The Course was developed by Ms. Foch from her study with Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler and Uta Hagen, combined with her experiences being directed by such icons as Vincente Minnelli, Stanley Kubrick, Robert Wise, Otto Preminger, Blake Edwards and Cecil B. DeMille.
For 40 years, at USC and The American Film Institute, she taught a generation of filmmakers including John McTiernan, Amy Heckerling, Ed Zwick, and Ron Underwood. Culled from over 200 hours of footage, this two set DVD puts the viewer right in her classroom and will appeal to students of directing, acting, and writing, as well as professionals who want to use it as a basic resource. It is also an invaluable aid to anyone engaged in public performance, whether in the workplace, the courtroom or at a speaking engagement.
It’s impossible to categorize the Nina Foch Course as being “for” any particular group. Is it for directors? Absolutely. For actors? Yes. But it’s equally valuable for writers, editors, producers, and anyone with more than a passing interest in the art and craft of filmmaking. This material can be used for an entire course, as part of a course, or a rich reference source to immerse yourself in your craft.
