Acting for the Camera 1 (May/June)

Enmity Gauge, Seattle Film, Mighty Tripod Productions

Our Acting for the Camera 1 course is coming right up!

Here are the specifics.

Our curriculum includes:

  • Technique.
  • An introduction to acting in front of a camera.
  • Scene study.
  • Acting in commercials.
  • Cold reading.
  • Auditioning.
  • The business of acting.

Students are sent their footage (not for a demo reel) via private YouTube link, so they can review their work between classes and refine their technique.

This is a fun, dynamic, and well rounded course designed for actors who are just getting started, or who are moving from the stage to the screen. This is also a class which can be taken more than once, as the material can be slightly tailored to accommodate and challenge more experienced students.

This course is taught by Tony Doupe’ and David S. Hogan.
