In this class you have the opportunity for on-camera acting experience in scripted and improvised scene work.

A crew member will join classes to handle all the technical aspects of film production from shooting, lighting, and editing.

You will leave the class with a better understanding of how to act on camera, correct on-set etiquette, your role in the film production, and to better understand the process of filmmaking and the concepts of film scene construction.
