CLASS INFO :
In this 5 week long, ongoing acting class, students will dive into film and television scene study and work in front of the camera as well as having the opportunity to watch others perform via a director's monitor where they can glean a TON from hearing the instructor's notes and seeing the "why and how" behind what makes an acting performance truly believable. Each week, actors will be tasked with memorizing and breaking down new material to perform in class. Actors will be assigned various scene partners and will cover different genres, styles and types of work which will help prepare them to compete in the professional world of show business. Students will also learn about the technical side of the filmmaking process and how it affects the actor's performance. Upon completing the class, students should be ready to find an agent in the local Texas market and start booking real/paid acting work (commercials, TV, films, etc). We will also have a HEADSHOT DAY where a professional photographer will be in class shooting headshots which will help our students on the journey of landing their first agent. A NOTE TO PARENTS: We are a conservative company. We will NOT ask, encourage, or allow your child to memorize and/or perform material that we find to be immoral or of questionable content. This includes scenes involving kissing, sexual innuendoes, heavy language, etc... We will strive to provide a very positive, uplifting and wholesome atmosphere for your children where everyone feels safe and comfortable at all times.
