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.
