Questions and answers


Can anyone take this class?

It’s open to students 18 and older.  However, if you are new to acting, you should take Acting 101 before taking this class. If you’re younger than 18, take the Acting for Kids and Teens class instead.


What’s the difference between this class and Let’s Make a Movie?

In Acting for the Camera, you’ll learn techniques specific to on-camera acting, and be able to practice in front of a camera. In Let’s Make a Movie we actually make a short film.
