Help Prepare for On-Camera Auditions

Not only do our Screen Acting classes help prepare students for life in front of the camera but it also helps prepare them for modern audition processes.

More and more acting opportunities request filmed audition pieces to be sent in by actors. Understanding how to film these is vital. Our course gives students the knowledge of how create a taped auction piece that is both technically good and honed toward what casting agents are looking for.

In-person auditions are also regularly filmed and so learning to be confident in front of the lens is a critical skill of any up-and-coming actor.
