Acting/Auditions for the Camera:
Techniques in working on-camera in film and television production


Workshop participants will examine the subtle differences between stage acting and working before the camera, then will be given an acting assignment which will be filmed in a live situation much like performing on an actual working film set.


Participants will discover how to conduct oneself in an audition for a film acting role, how to “work” with the camera and how to “behave” in a film or television performance.
