In Film Intensive, students learn tricks of the trade in a fun-filled, fast-paced, week long workshop that focuses on acting for the camera. Working with television and film scripts, our actors develop the performance nuances they’ll need on camera by delving into techniques for commercial and film auditions, including how to cold read, take direction for the camera, and create compelling characters using actual film scripts. Actors in this workshop can expect to finish with a headshot and a short filmed piece, and be ready for their first audition!.
