1-Week On-Camera Acting Intensive

1-Week On-Camera Acting Intensive

August 10th – August 14th



Over the course of the week, students will analyze various film and television scripts and discuss how the scripts translate to the screen. Students will acquire knowledge of how to approach each of these scripts in an audition setting.


Through self-tapes and live (Zoom) auditions, students will learn the fundamentals of on-camera audition technique and how to use the camera as an additional tool in their story-telling.
