Set Scene is a workshop series on innovative and effective scene creation.  

The understanding of what makes a good scene is crucial across the visual art disciplines, from stage and film to concept art for animation and games.

This series of workshops & talks strives to support the art of the director, the performer, and the visual artist or designer.

Each workshop is developed by leading industry professionals with proven practical experience and keen insight into the process.

Set Scene is part of the launch of Roxy's educational program and is set to go live 2018.

action on stage

Action on Stage is a series of workshops designed to teach and assist with movement of the body on stage and in film.  The three primary focus topics of the live performance workshops are dynamic choreography, believable stage fighting, and making blocking comfortable and natural.  For film we will be offering workshops on acting for animation, body language, and the art of subtleness. 

The workshops are hands-on and practical, giving the participant tools they can actually use for confident presence and action, be it on the stage or in front of a camera, or animating.  

Each workshop is designed to impart the material in clear, understandable, and achievable benchmarks in a condensed timeframe for the busy actor, director, or animator.  These workshops are perfect for those looking to improve or enhance their craft repertoire and for those new to the game.

Action on Stage is in the launch of Roxy's educational program and is set to go live 2018.

Look for program schedule this Summer.
