This exciting course for young actors is a unique introduction to the overall process of creating a video from start to finish. Participants will rehearse and block a script written for them by a professional screenwriter. They will work as a team to design the set, costumes and sound. The script is then videotaped with the participants as the actors. Not only will they participants perform in the video, they will learn about many of the other roles on set. Once everything has been shot, the film will be professionally edited and screened for friends & family.
By following this process our young actors will:
Act in a mini-movie written with them in mind
Learn how to find a story in a scene
Discover what a director is looking for during taping
Work in an actual production setting
Learn how to ensure continuity in a scene
See how scenes are cut and manipulated
Find out how an actor can end up on the proverbial, "cutting room floor"
Are you building a video resume? This course will leave you with a good clip for your demo reel. Every participant will receive a DVD copy of the finished project with an actual movie cover with the actors names and a movie photo on the case. Class size is limited. There will be a screening held upon completion of the course for all participants, their families and friends. (March 22 or 24, 2007)
