Teaching Faculty II in Acting for the Camera

Florida State University invites applications for a nine-month Teaching Faculty II position. This position will teach acting for the camera in the School of Theatre, and acting for filmmakers in the College of Motion Picture Arts, and serve as a strong and critical link between the two nationally-ranked art programs to begin Fall, 2017.

This unique position is fundamental to two academic units, requiring the successful candidate to effectively collaborate with two faculty bodies, and to bridge the curricula and cultures of both. The position requires teaching three courses each semester focused on introduction to on-camera acting, advanced on-camera acting and acting for film directors. We seek an artist/educator with a commitment to enhancing each program’s national distinction and nurturing the next generation of artists. The successful candidate will learn and become immersed in the culture, ethos and inner workings of each of the units and become an inextricable bond between them.

Candidates should hold a Master of Fine Arts degree in a related field, a record of creative work of at least 10 years, and be conversant in current professional practices of both theatre and filmmaking, including short-form internet content for actors, UGC (user-generated content), and collaborative film-making with an emphasis on performance. We seek an artist/educator who has a strong commitment to teaching, mentoring, and the collaborative process of theatre and film-making, who engages students in both creative and intellectual aspects of the artistic process. Along with their ability to teach the required courses, special consideration will be given to candidates who are members of one of the pertinent professional unions (AEA, SAG, AFTRA). Applicants should be student-centered and able to train students in the basics of method acting.

The successful candidate will have a record of professional activity on stage and screen at the level required by a Research-I university and a minimum of five years of University teaching.
