Are you ready for the camera? Designed for teen actors, this class teaches the technical requirements needed to work in front of the camera. Students will work with all aspects of commercial audition scenarios and copy, as well as with film & television sides. This class is very hands-on; students will work on-camera every week, as well as review playback footage and receive feedback. Classes will include:

  • Script Analysis--To help actors tackle any script
  • Learning to fully use oneself--To maximize your unique actor-self
  • Finding stillness and specificity--To be clear and composed on-camera
  • Making dynamic choices--To be interesting and emotionally alive on-camera

Facilitated by a teacher, the final class culminates with a Q & A for parents with a top Chicago agent.   This Industry class is held 10am-12pm.
