Creative Therapy Pop-Up Acting Studio Presents
Acting for Camera (Film & TV) Workshop: PILOT SEASON BOOT CAMP
Teens & Kids (ages 9-17 years old)
In short, based on our 30 years experience thus far as professional film and television actors/filmmakers/acting coachs, we present a two-part ‘acting for camera’ format, combining the components, principles, and disciplines of Stanislavski's 'Preparation' of ‘building a character’ leading up to the moment, along with Meisner's ‘repetition exercises’ in the 'Moment'.
This work shop serves as a journey into self-discovery for each actor, to identify, take ownership of, your own unique 'emotional instrument' and 'creative brand', moving forward into the entertainment industry, as a professional, disciplined actor.
We encourage each actor to dig in, make it your own, and forge a path to creative and economic success:
