On-camera acting is different from acting on stage.  In this class, students will learn how to give their best and most effective performances when being filmed; how to walk to a mark without looking at it; how to make the camera their scene partner; and how to make their performance larger or smaller, while staying true to your character and his or her motivation. This class can be taken by itself, or applied toward our Certificate Program in ActingIMPORTANT NOTE: This is NOT a Beginning Acting class. If you’re new to acting, take ACTING 101 first.
