Class Experience

Drop-off/pick-up location: 3rd street & prospect park west.

A star is made, not born! Learn the rules and techniques of acting for the camera in a fun and supportive environment with Team CinemaKidz! Each class will start off with several improv games and exercises that stimulate the imagination and build confidence! As the weeks progress, 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 creative kid'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. Kids will also work on-set filming , directing one another, and calling the scenes. The group will work towards completing a short film inspired by the natural world around them, with topics including: sci-fi films, comedies, musical, and more.
