FILM ACTING CLASSES!
Why does acting for the camera look so easy? Because it is!

ACTING FOR THE CAMERA – $150 per month (four classes)

In these ongoing acting classes for film and TV, actors will discover the secrets to connecting with your scene partner, being in the moment, and why your best “choice” is to just be yourself. This class will change the way you think about acting for the camera and the way you watch movies. Really. This class is ideal for anybody who wants to take the first few steps to film acting (and those who want to do it better) or those with experience acting on stage who want to discover how to deliver great moments on screen. Classes will cover screen techniques, connecting with your scene partner, surrendering to your environment, auditioning for film, cold reading, and more. Students will spend a considerable amount of time being filmed for playback in class.  Class is held on Tuesday nights from 6:30 until 9:30. Sessions usually begin on the first Tuesday of each month. Cost is $135 per month (4 classes).

FILM ACTING FOR KIDS AND TEENS – $90 (two classes per month)
Succesful kid actors know that being “yourself” is the key to delivering great moments on screen.

Students will learn an amazing technique for learning lines quickly, a stress-free way to audition, and the one simple little secret that every Hollywood actor knows. The class includes lots of on-camera work, too! Class meets the second and fourth Sunday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Cost is $90 (tuition covers both classes each month).
