Acting for the Camera Details

Learn how to act in front of the camera by acting in front of the camera. This summer acting camp, taught by Emmy award winning director Mary Lou Belli and 30 year acting veteran Charles Dougherty will show you the ins and outs of acting in front of the camera. Students will learn the similarities and differences between stage and film acting. Using scenes from current film and television scripts, students will work “on camera” every day. Students will explore and work on monologues, scenes from soap operas, sitcoms, and television commercial work. They will also alternate roles assisting in production of group scenes- lighting, slating, and standing in as extras. Students will utilize the university campus for outdoor film scenes. At the end of the program, students will receive a DVD with a compilation of the scenes they worked on during the week. This is a must for all actors.
