ON CAMERA 2

ON CAMERA 2

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
  • How the Industry varies (CHI/LA/NY)
  • Business Info: properly listing credits/getting great headshots/finding work/agent-actor relationship/self-taping
  • Industry guest in final week for Mock Audition and Business Q&A
