Y.A.H. Movie Camp: Ages 12+

JULY 25-29, 2016

9:00AM – 4:00PM


From day one the students are immersed in the how’s and why’s of acting for film and TV. The following topics are explored through in-class exercises:

  • Acting for Film – Working in front of the lens; hitting marks; emotional/physical continuity; creating fresh performances with each take
  • Acting Technique – Acting truthfully; working moment-to-moment
  • Scene Study – Breaking down a scene; defining objectives; developing a character through action
  • Film Craft – Defining the nuts and bolts of how films get made

An original short film will be written by a Los Angeles screenwriter for this camp and students will have the opportunity to apply new knowledge to BOTH behind the camera production and acting for the camera.  This camp is ideal for any level of student as any on set experience is going to enhance the actor's craft.

On last day of camp, a screening of the short film will be previewed for students, parents AND local industry professionals (TBD) followed by a small meet and greet.

Space is strictly limited.
