Acting for TV and Film

Whether you have a background in musical theater, or plays, or have never acted before, this class will prepare you step in front of the camera in TV and Film. Students will be on camera every day in class, watching their work, and learning how to bring the right amount of energy for a realistic performance. Topics also include working with tv and film scripts, breaking down scenes, making choices, hitting your mark, preparing self-taped auditions at home, and learning the business side of acting. At the end of the workshop, students will receive a copy of their in-class work. Students will need a device (laptop, tablet, phone) with a camera and access to Wi-Fi. Classes will be held over ZOOM.
