Acting/On-Camera

For anyone who has been dying to ham it up in front of a camera!

Introductory Class
This all-inclusive program begins with learning the most basic on-camera skills that unfortunately don't come along with the ability to make a YouTube video. This class focuses exclusively on commercials and audition technique. Actors will learn camera right/camera left, in frame/out of frame, bite and smile, etc. Actors will also work on "spokesman" spots (to the camera) and two-shots. Each class will end with a visual review of the day's work. At session's end, parents will be treated to a video presentation of select playbacks including each and every participant.

Advanced Class
For the more serious acting student, this class will focus heavily on audition technique and the significant differences between stage and on-camera acting. In addition to learning about and working on commercials, actors will be paired up to develop two-person scenes from television and film. Scenes will generally be shot from three different angles, a two-shot and a close-up on both characters. For this program, class-end playbacks will make up a significant portion of the learning process. Through the evaluation of one's own work - as well as the observation and constructive criticism of classmates - the steps toward progress will become clearer and clearer. Those who provide a flash drive will be able to obtain a full collection of individual work upon completion of the course.
