Offered at locations that include New York City, Los Angeles, Paris, and Florence, the New York Film Academy’s 3-Week Acting Summer Camp for Teens offers young aspiring actors the one-of-a-kind opportunity to study the craft of acting in a unique and exciting setting. Held during the summer, the 3-Week Acting Summer Camp fits perfectly into most campers summer schedules, giving them an unforgettable experience.
Following a similar format as the 4-Week Acting Summer Camp for Teens, teens who enroll in the camp are challenged to learn the skills and techniques necessary to make the transition from stage to screen. Camp instructors help campers to apply in a practical manner acting techniques as they relate to screen acting. Students split their time between in-class lectures, instructor-supervised workshops, and auditioning for and acting in other students’ films.
The structure of the camp’s classes and workshops is meant to challenge campers to construct and control a character amidst the many challenges that come with acting on a film set. Students are taught to use a number of techniques that include Stanislavski’s “System,” “the Method,” and the “Meisner Technique” as jumping-off points. They then go on to develop scenes and monologues for the camera via their Acting for Film and Monologues classes while also participating in exercises designed to improve their performances in front of the camera.
Over the course of the camp’s three weeks, students participate in a number of different classes that serve to supplement the fundamentals taught in Acting for Film and Monologues as well as receiving an introduction to the craft of filmmaking.
• Acting For Film
• Acting Technique
• Scene Study
• Film Craft
• Voice and Movement
• Audition Technique
In addition to the above acting classes, campers also participate in a number of Special Topics, which may include Shakespeare, Stage Combat, and Dialects.
Upon the successful completion of the three weeks, campers leave New York Film Academy with a certificate, a professional headshot, and a digital reel featuring all of their filmed performance shot during camp.
