Interested in acting in film and television? Now’s your chance to get in front of the camera in the On-Camera Acting Workshop. Students of all levels of experience are welcome. Actors will explore:

  • Fundamental acting tools including objective, obstacle, actions, tactics, and point of view
  • Theatrical skills such as scene analysis, vocal production, and physical awareness
  • On-camera acting techniques versus stage techniques
  • Audition preparation and filming yourself
  • The business and industry of film, television, and commercial acting

Classes will meet twice a week for 6 weeks. Students will have 3.5 hours of training per week split between 1-hour online sessions via Zoom and in-person meetings at our 30 Grant Ave Studios in San Francisco. There will be some assignments and memorization in between classes.  This intensive will culminate in a group showing to present projects, songs, and scenes rehearsed in class.  Have fun with peers while gaining some valuable musical theater skills!

In this two-part class, learn what goes into a professional voiceover performance from someone with more than two decades of experience in animation, video game, commercial and film voice-over. You’ll learn vocal technique, how to break down copy, and the pitfalls that many novice voice actors run into. There are no shortcuts: you learn voice-over by doing voice-over! The final portion of this online master class will be recorded and made available to students. Class size is limited.*
