Pro Series: On Camera for Theater Actors

Taught by Eric William Morris

For Ages 14-18

Dates and tickets

For Ages 14-18

This workshop offers an exciting look at the world of acting on-camera geared specifically for the young creative mind. We start every session by breaking down exactly how a camera works, and how we as actors can work best to communicate through it. We then focus on how to translate what we do onstage into the “frame of the shot.” All participants will get a chance to act on camera, watch their scenes, get feedback, and walk away with a clip of their work. The workshop focuses specifically on the differences between acting for the camera versus acting on stage…and how a few small adjustments can make a big impact.

Scholarships are available for the Pro Series workshops. Apply for scholarship here.
