Acting is a craft in and of itself.  Then, on camera acting is the next step.  In this class series, our teen actors will continue with the fundamentals of honing the craft, as well as the subtlety of camera.  You’ll see how the camera picks up everything, from the slight to the obvious mannerisms.  This class is perfect for those in this age group who wish to continue to learn the dynamics of honest and interesting acting, and how it plays on camera.

All acting needs to be honest and real, regardless of genre. Even when telling a real-life personal story, as soon as we’re aware that there’s a camera or an audience, we’ll fall into the “performance trap” of changing the inflection of our voice or our body language, because there’s a theatrical urge to force the feeling rather than allow it to develop organically as the script unfolds.  We suddenly become conscious of an ‘audience.’  We get in our heads, which get in our own way.

Concepts: Objective.  The pursuit of objective.  Intention.  How your intention changes.  Scene Partner.  Meisner Technique.  You don’t change.  You allow your scene partner to change you.  Transition.  Silence.  Focus.  Observation.  (We encourage improvisation incorporation).

Real is relatable. Real gets callbacks.  Elevate your audition level by being comfortable with being truthful in front of the camera and making meaningful eye-contact. In this class, students learn to incorporate a sense of self, and let go of all things performance, and over-the-top theatrical and artificial mannerisms. Make the camera mark your comfort zone.
