Saturdays, June 26th – August 21st, Register By the Class. If you’d like to register for a series of days, please call ATNY by phone, 917.763.1777.
*We know summer Saturdays are hard to predict, but we are thrilled to have you. We kindly request you register each week, by the class, if you’re not part of a 5-Day Summer Camp. If you are a 5-day camper, there is no need to register.
We start off with some creative improvisation, and then move on to act & audition technique!
Whether it’s their first time in front of the camera or they already have some on-set experience under their belts, young talent will always be influenced by the shows they see on TV, or by whatever goes viral on a seemingly daily basis. This can often mislead them into thinking that hamming it up for the camera is more entertaining than being truthful and organic in your expression.
Our On-Camera TV/Film Saturdays class explores the fundamentals of honest and truth-centered acting through a variety of comedic and dramatic monologues and scenes. We work on the basics of dissecting a script, identifying beats, transitions and operative words, in order to infuse passion to what we say, rather than blandly recite it. We’ll explore the different genres of serious vs. comedic acting, all based in truth and understanding of moments.
We take a gradual approach towards internalizing the scripted copy in such way that the actors aren’t just talking to the camera, but actually reaching through the lens and making meaningful connections. A must for auditioning actors!
