ACTING FOR CAMERA

For Talent Age 12 through Adult!

INSTRUCTOR: Karen Scioli

PLATFORM: Zoom

DATE: Check back for new dates!

AGE: 12 through Adult!

About This Class

This is a great course for talent just starting out in the industry or for theater talent transitioning to on-camera! 

 

The focus of this class will be on on-camera auditioning skills and acting for commercials and short film (including corporate).  Philadelphia is primarily a market for commercials, corporate and independent films.   

 

Each week, students will work on-camera performing real scripts. Talent will be taught auditioning skills, and how to tap into your own personality to bring each script their own feel.  This course is a lot of fun, and boasts a very supportive setting in a small class environment (capped at 10).

 

Wickline Casting is fortunate to have this stellar instructor to offer such a widely sought and rarely offered course.

Scripts will be distributed in advance of each class. Classes will contain short breaks.
