on Scene Work
at the Ischia Global Film & Music Festival 2019
Island of ISCHIA ,Italy
July 14th through 18th 2019
Internationally renowned American Acting coach Michael Margotta and Academy Award Winning Filmmaker Paul Haggis will be delivering a 5 day intensive workshop in acting in Italy this summer, on the beautiful island of Ischia, during the famous Ischia Global Film and Music Festival, hosted by founder Pascal Vicedomoni.   
Actors will be assigned scenes for two or more characters prior to arriving, and then develop those scenes intensively with Mr. Margotta and Haggis for the first two days.  Actors will then choose a second scene from our approved list, prepare it with their acting partners, and then work on those new scenes with Mr Margotta and Haggis for the last two days.  During the course of the week they will also have the chance to hear from other important internationally recognized professionals who are attending the festival.     
This workshop is part of the Ischia Global Film & Music Festival and all the participants will be invited to attend the evenings' beautiful outdoor screenings and the festival's after-hours parties, where they can mingle with the top actors, directors, performers and industry professionals that the festival attracts.   And there is a one day mid-workshop break to enjoy the beach and incredible water - while you prepare your new scene!
A limited number of auditors will be admitted; a great opportunity for writers, directors, producers and beginning actors to observe the process of rehearsing and developing scenes, and ask questions to Mr. Margotta and Haggis.
100% of Mr. Haggis' fee will be directly donated to The Founder's Fund of Artists for Peace and Justice, in support of the children of Haiti.  
Previous festival guests include Helen Mirren ,Taylor Hackford, Oliver Stone, Alfonso Cuaron, Sting & Trudie Styler,  Lina Wertmuller, Bille August, Naomi Watts, Alicia Vikander, Christopher Waltz, Jeremy Renner, Stephen Frears, Giuseppe Tornatore, Alejandro Inarritu, Nicolas Refn, Lee Daniels, Matteo Garrone, Jessica Chastain, Paolo Genovese, Tommy Lee Jones, Samuel L Jackson, Monica Bellucci, Nicholas Cage, Selena Gomez, Baz Lurhman, Vanessa Redgrave, Michael Radford, Terry Gilliam, Claire Danes, Hugh Dancy, Jeremy Irons, Antonio Banderas, Danny De Vito, Gerard Butler, Joel Schumacher, Forest Whitaker, Sylvester Stallone, Michele Placido, Gigi Proietti and many more.
