Spring & Summer Camps

One Week Acting Camps for ages 4-17

Spring Break & Summer Camps

Our camps are the perfect way for kids and teens to stay involved while school’s out! Students will develop the confidence and knowledge they’ll need to be put in the mix for film, television, voice-over and commercial roles. Camps are open to students of all experience levels. Beginners will learn the foundations of on-camera and voice-over auditioning, while advanced students will take their craft to the next level, giving them that extra edge in future auditions.

DAY to DAY:

DAY 1: Everyone gets to know each other. Then we get stuck into TEXT ANALYSIS to break down scenes and understand what’s happening in a scene and why it’s happening. You’ll also film audition scenes in the afternoon!

DAY 2: SCENE STUDY
You’ll take what you learnt yesterday and jump into some basic scenes to encourage creativity and character exploration. You’ll work with a scene partner and bring scenes to life through workshop exercises.

DAY 3: ON-CAMERA AUDITION
We’ll get you on camera today to work audition and camera technique. You’ll receive a scene ahead of time to prepare to today’s class. You’ll film, workshop, watch back and film again!

DAY 4: IN DEPTH SCENE STUDY
Building on what you learnt on day 2, you workshop previously assigned scenes and bring them to life and present scenes in class. If ready, you’ll filming them!

DAY 5: FINAL AUDITION
Today is your final audition day. You’ll present an on camera audition in a real life mock casting session. You’ll be given feedback and re directs form your instructor and film again. Finally, we’ll discuss the business of acting and what steps to take moving forward if acting is something you want to pursue!
