Screen Acting

The goal: get you on camera as much as humanly possible. Forget written tests and theory textbooks - get out there and do it. You will star in multiple film productions weekly and be working in tandem with the filmmakers. When you are not rehearsing or on the set, you will join workshops with professional tutors to train your body and voice.
