On-camera Acting!

This ONE-DAY workshop will take the group through a variety of scripts from film, TV, and commercials. The class will be all about practicing the art of acting on-screen in front of the camera, where to stand, where to look, what to say, how to approach a script. There will also be “mock auditions” so they know what to expect when they step into an audition room.
The best takes on camera will be e-mailed back to the participants. Taught by Stephanie Herrera. Date TBA
