WEEK 3: Acting for Animators with guest instructor Ed Sahely

This week we have a wonderful opportunity to study improv and acting with award-winning instructor, Ed Sahely.

Ed spent seven years with The Second City and his cast received a Dora Mavor Moore Award for their work on the Toronto Mainstage. Television credits include ROBOCOP: THE SERIES, GETTING ALONG FAMOUSLY, SUE THOMAS: FBI, ROAD TO AVONLEA, TRADERS, DUE SOUTH, RED GREEN, DOC, MONK, DAN FOR MAYOR, SKINS. Ed co-created improvised with the group Not To Be Repeated where they improvised a new Canadian play every night. It was later developed into the half hour television series THIS SITCOM IS NOT TO BE REPEATED for CTV and The Comedy Channel.As well as directing plays and acting in film, television, radio and theatre, Ed continues to teach 'Improv for Actors' to the first-year theatre students at George Brown College and Sheridan/UTM and continues to teach Improv at the Second City Training Centre.

See you in 515 (fingers crossed!)  Please continue to bring drawing materials and cameras & tripods (if you have them) every week as we'll be working in groups and continuing our study of human locomotion.
