What do the kids have to say?
"This camp clarified my interest in pursuing acting as I had been thinking about it for a while. I was also able to see which end of the camera I prefer being on--starring in front of it, or operating in the back. Your camp was the highlight of my summer, and I think it's a great start for kids who have an interest in TV and Film." -- Lisa Monteiro
"My experience at Wickline Casting's Film and TV Camp was amazing. I learned so much about the industry, such as what to expect at an audition and how to work a camera. We made our own commercials, music videos, short films and more! The instructors were really nice, experienced and made the camp a lot of fun! I can't wait to attend another Wickline Casting camp!" -- Taylor Kane
