The next Martin Scorcese, Steven Spielberg, or Sophia Coppola might be sitting in THEA355 this semester.  "Directing the Actor" (cross-listed with FMI304) is taught by Stevenson's Theatre & Media Performance Program Coordinator, Professor Ryan Clark.  The class provides students with the opportunity to study both the theory and practice of directing across genres (film, television, stage, etc.).  Students learn how to conceptualize a production, how to analyze scripts, and how to work with actors.  And, along the way, they have a lot of high-energy fun and interaction as they collaborate to problem solve and create new work.
