In this Special ATNY class, actors will learn the essentials of comedy performance through real life comedy scenes from Disney and Nickelodeon Shows. Actors will work closely with other actors and readers On-Camera and discover what makes a comedy scene work with script. We know your child is a rock star at home. That’s not what motivates us. Can they be a Rock Star in front of Camera? Do they have the courage to go with a gut impulse?
There’s a sense of fearlessness that is needed in comedy. There’s also a great need for improvisational skills. We strongly suggest taking ATNY’s Improvisation Class, as it will complement this comedy elective greatly. It will be about timing, quick improv and the ability to understand the setup and punch of a joke, through words and lines. Slight physical comedy, mostly situational comedy.
ATNY works closely with L.A. Nick/Disney Executive Producers. We’ll bring in a Top Notch Producer (virtually) from one of the big time hit shows you know and love(d), to view your final scenes. You’ll get comments and critique from the ones who hire…yes, the show runners.
