WORKSHOPS

ON-CAMERA: Acting for Film & Television

"How can I get into acting? Where do I start?"

LEVEL 1 - Teens, Adults

Interested in diving into the world of on-camera acting? Whether you're still in school, recently graduated from a theatre program, or are considering a career change, it's important to learn the basics. In this course, you will have the opportunity to break out of your shell, and explore acting for the camera under expert guidance in a safe, supportive space.

 

Furthermore, this series will provide an invaluable roadmap to help you navigate the intricacies of being a performer. How do I break down a text? What can I expect from the audition process? What is expected of me on set? How do I approach my first agent? ​

 

From comedy, to drama, to commercial, you will be provided scenes to practice and perform over this 10-week workshop. By the end of this enriching series, you will have the tools required to begin your on-camera acting journey.

 

"Do you know where I can train? I want to keep my tools sharp."

SCENE STUDY - Adults

As actors, many elements of the industry are out of our control. How can we stay proactive? By keeping our demo materials up to date, sharpening our performing skills, and ensuring we never lose our sense of play.

SCENE STUDY was crafted to help actors dive deep into a variety of material, connect with other performers, and explore roles for which they’re not typically seen.

Every week, new sides are provided, with fresh challenges to tackle. After a week with the material, the scenes are recorded and feedback provided. The very last class is dedicated to the filming of demo scenes, and actors will be sent a high-quality recording of their material.

This recurring scene study class, run by respected professionals working in the industry, will help keep actors on their toes and ready for their next audition.
