Adult On Camera


For actors who have completed On Camera 1 or its equivalent (eligibility determined by ASC), this class digs deeper into the skills necessary to bring your best to the audition room. Students will break down scenes for a variety of roles and genres, including commercial and co-star and supporting roles for television and film across different styles- with emphasis placed on the roles Chicago actors are most likely to encounter. Each week involves on-camera work as well as watching/discussing playback.

  • Commercials and Improv
  • Breaking down Co-star roles for television
  • Breaking down supporting roles for film
  • Delivering that coveted “third take” the first time
  • Interpreting and Implementing adjustments in the callback
  • Self-Taping Introduced: Many assignments will be self-tapes
  • How the Industry varies (CHI/LA/NY)
  • Business Info: properly listing credits/getting great headshots/finding work/agent-actor relationship/self-taping

Required: On Camera 1 or prior acting training and experience- determined by headshot and resume and/or a placement audition.


In the event of inclement winter weather, your class will move to Zoom. ASC staff will make the decision by 3 pm the day of class and send you a Zoom link via email and text.

I took On-Camera 2 w/ Coburn Goss and left the class feeling more confident about acting on camera. I enjoyed listening to the feedback given to students and seeing how we all progressed throughout the 8-week course. Highly recommended!
