Class Description: LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! Students will participate in games, exercises, and scenes to allow them to gain comfort and technique in portraying a character both on and off camera. Topics will include basic scene work, storytelling, and movement with a focus on bringing their performance to a media standpoint. Students will be filmed throughout the class. Media exercises will include: news anchor, weather reports, news releases, public announcements, commercial monologues, commercial scenes, film auditions/sides, television roles, etc.  Though the emphasis of the class will be on developing skills and not on a final performance, family and friends are invited to the last class to see student’s final presentations.

Pre-Requisite: It is strongly encouraged that students take either CREATIVE KIDS or PUTTIN ON A SHOW for a full year before registering for this class. Please contact us if you have questions.
