About the Event

Do you feel like your acting skills are ready for the screen? Our On-Screen Acting class will take your acting to the next level as we help you discover the differences and nuances to film acting. Using Meisner Technique, actors will learn how to appear authentically for the camera, connect with their scene partner, and understand behind-the-camera language. Students will work on 2-3 minute duet scenes throughout the course and film those scenes using instructors' professional film equipment on their final class. The scenes will be edited and sent to students to be used for their professional reels once the class concludes.
