Acting for Camera Classes
Prestige offers awesome Acting for Camera classes for ages 5-17. These classes are some of our acting student’s favorites and many take both Theater and Camera classes to build their training resumes. Students will be instructed on how to audition and perform in front of a camera, which requires a different skill-set than stage productions. They will have the opportunity to learn and perfect both commercials and movie scenes as the instructor guides them with stage direction while shooting them from different angles. Each week will be a different script/activity to keep the children engaged as they create new characters. After several “takes” they will have the opportunity to showcase their best acting performances meticulously edited for the audience. In the end, they will get to watch their work on the big screen as family and friends look on in awe. The final product is always something the children look forward to and builds on their self-esteem and confidence as a performer.
