MOVIE ACTING CLASSES

  • ALL of the classes in our BEGINNING ACTING SERIES have a strong focus on developing camera-acting skills. So they’re all good classes to start with.
  • Re: the classes on this page – in Acting for the Camera, we perform class exercises in front of a camera, then view them and get feedback to improve perormances
  • In Let’s Make a Movie, students perform in an actual short film. (If you take it multiple times, you will be in several different films, and end up with some good material for your actor reel.)

  2. LET’S MAKE A MOVIE
