We ask parents with students enrolled in the class to make themselves available for filming for the full day/time to allow for maximum flexibility for filming.

**Dates and times of filming are subject to change due to weather, location issues, and other external factors. We will communicate any potential changes well enough in advance and appreciate parents flexibility and patience with coordinating this dynamic performance opportunity for students.

FALL ON CAMERA ACTING CLASS - Ages 10-13

Taught by Brian Stevens

Price: $999.00 or 2 payments of $499.50 (14 spots available)

This weekly On Camera Acting Class will be an intermediate/advanced class in On Camera Acting for ages 10-13. Students who have taken class before, or done a film camp in the past, are encouraged to sign up.

Classes are separated by age -to benefit classes in making sure material is not only age appropriate but "age relevant".

Students will work on scenes, monologues, and commercials every week - work is taped and students will have opportunities to watch their work, assess, and learn from others!

All students will participate as actors in an original ensemble short film - written specifically for them - which will shoot outside of class time hours during the Fall session. Dates/times TBD. This unique opportunity gives students a practical "real world" exercise of a professional environment - where they put the theory to practice in a fun and supportive atmosphere.

This film culminates in a screening of the short film at local movie theatre where family, friends, will have the chance to walk the red carpet, be interviewed, and see their work from the short film on the big screen.
