A star is made, not born! In this special week, your Hollywood bound kid will learn the rules and techniques of acting for the camera in a fun and supportive environment. The week will start off with several improv games and exercises that stimulate the imagination and build confidence! As the week progresses, kids will practice acting techniques unique to filmmaking including: character motivation, nonconsecutive filming, hitting your mark, blocking action and calibrating movement for the camera and shot size, stage presence, and more. Unique to this immersive acting class is the camper’s ability to learn both acting skills as well as real movie set production lingo. Children will practice both improvisation, monologues, and reading from the page to the stage. Campers will also learn about voice acting, as they experiment with creating a character through voice overs, used in the final film. Screen testers will culminate in the filming of a longer scripted project.
