TEENS ON CAMERA
COURSE DESCRIPTION :
The ongoing Teens On Camera program dives into the world of performance for film and television. Our students are building their acting careers locally and are booking speaking roles in film/television series shooting in Sudbury. Our program has an emphasis on professional on-set behaviour and preparation. The program builds confidence while having fun with their peers! Each term prepares actors for today's industry. From on-camera acting technique to preparing for auditions, actors will learn how to become comfortable on screen. Students are heavily involved in the short filmmaking process, from story boarding to writing the script and working with the camera. Students also have the opportunity to work with filmmakers to shoot their Pro-Reels.
