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.

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. (We’re not filming a movie, but improving our camera-acting skills in a hands-on way.) In Let’s Make a Movie we actually make a short film. Many students take both classes.

Can you tell me about the instructor’s background?

Seattle actor and instructor Meredith Binder is an actress and producer, known for A Crime to Remember (2013), Invisible Ink (2015) and Beloved Beast (2018). See full bio.
