How To Zombie with Robin Berry: Motion Capture and Physical Performance Coach Gives Tips!

As if 2020 hasn’t been nightmare enough, this week sees us descend into the world of Halloween and being robbed by children of our comforting snacks (from a responsible distance). The Actors Gym’s motion capture and physical performance coach, Robin Berry, has come to the rescue though with a free tutorial of how to blend into the Zombie crowd which is available from free on the Actor’s Gym website from today.

Robin Berry has been in the business as an actor for 16 years. His credits include One Man Two Guvnors (National Theatre), Silent Witness (BBC) and Mowgli (Netflix). He is also an experienced motion capture performer, working with Andy Serkis’ Imaginarium company. Robin has been mocap and physical performance coach with The Reel Scene for 3 years.

The Actors Gym, an online acting school launched by agent and CEO of The Reel Scene, Alex Fidelski, has exploded in popularity during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Actors Gym, launched in February this year, is an online branch of Fidelski’s Fulham based acting school The Reel Scene.

The Actors Gym are masters at connecting and supporting members with their online community, offering self-tape feedback, Q&A sessions with special guests, exclusive training and zoom workshops with key industry experts from a variety of fields.

Actors are encouraged to send off two self tapes a month, from which they receive a page of written feedback. Self-taping is the process of recording an audition for a film or television role from home and then sending the resulting video to an agent to be submitted for a role, rather than attending an audition in person.

Fidelski comments on the importance of practicing this new virtual way of auditioning, “The film and television industry cancelled most in-person auditions and moved to requiring self-tape auditions sent in by actors. Productions ground to a halt but acting is like any other profession. Actors need to keep training, to keep acting, to keep their skills sharp for when productions re-open.”
