PROJECT / COMPETITION

You and your peers will be divided into groups, with each of you responsible for a different role in creating your budding blockbuster. In creating each short film, you’ll learn the techniques and methods of your chosen course and working with your group to take it from storyboard to studio to screen.

You’ll also gain access to permanent shooting sets – normally reserved for the professionals – including the backlot of Warner Brothers Studio, plus film and television sound stages, as well as advanced editing technology like Avid and Final Cut Pro Suites. When it’s time for the big premiere, you’ll showcase your final project in a high-definition theater!

Acting

If making it to the silver screen is your dream, then start in the land where stars go to hit it big. You’ll explore the fundamentals of acting, finding your motivation, and creating dynamic scenes through conflict and resolution, while mastering any sense of stage fright. You’ll also gain the benefit of practicing these elements through both individual and duo-scene performances. Refine your talent further by engaging in the most popular acting theories, including Constantin Stanislavski’s “magic if,” Lee Strasberg’s “method,” and the Meisner technique. To complete your acting class, you’ll also participate in a live audition with Emmy-nominated casting director Fern Champion.
