GRADES 3-5- ON CAMERA TECHNIQUE: ONLINE

GRADES 3-5- ON CAMERA TECHNIQUE: ONLINE

This fun and dynamic class uses improv and theater games to teach young actors to use their imagination and strengthen their commercial auditions. Students will work on-camera every week via zoom. Classes include:

  • Improvisation: To promote fast-thinking and awaken the imagination, essentials for any actor 
  • The Basics of Commercial Audition Skills: To prepare for any commercial audition with confidence.
  • The Interview Process: So young actors know just what to expect
  • MOS Auditions: Because you don’t have to talk to act!
  • Single Person Copy: To learn how to work alone
  • Two Person Copy: To learn how to work with another actor
  • Audition Etiquette: Take all the guesswork out of how it works and what you’re supposed to do.
  • Mock Auditions: Practice builds confidence for the real thing

Facilitated by the teacher, the final class culminates with a Q & A  for parents with a top Chicago agent. This Industry class is held at 11 am-1 pm.

Students must have internet access, as well as a computer/cell phone/tablet with a working camera and microphone.
