“I thought it was really cool seeing 7 people acting like kids again. It was very good for the soul and ones true spirit. As the class went on I could definitely feel everyone becoming more comfortable with each other. Speaking for myself I really believe that improv is going to help me get in touch with my true self and definitely good for personal growth.”

Drew Allman

TV/Commercial & Film Acting workshop (Beginners)

on-camera classThis 6 week workshop will take you through all the basics of acting on camera, from stepping into the audition room (where to stand, what to say, how to prepare) to getting into the room (how to find an agent, building your reel and resume, finding work on your own). Each week you will have time to practice your craft on camera, working with TV and movie scripts, commercials, and a little improv, to make you “audition ready”!

An optional addition, for those who are serious about continuing with their quest to get in front of a camera, we have secured a professional photographer for a one day photo shoot enabling you to get professional looking head shots at half his regular price (up to 5 looks for only $150!) at the end of the workshop.
