Spend Your Summer Acting

Making the step from stage to screen is a skill best learned through gaining actual experience acting in a professional setting. Offered at locations around the globe, the 4-Week Acting for Film summer camp is a one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience for teens who are passionate about performing and want to act in film. This summer camp is structured to support, challenge and inspire students as they work collaboratively to elevate their talent and skills. The life-changing opportunity to spend the summer acting in professional facilities or film studios is why many choose an acting camp with NYFA.

Designed for teens on break for the summer, the 4-Week Acting for Film Camp fits conveniently into campers’ summer schedules.

Acting Summer Camp: Classes

Campers split their time between in-class lectures, instructor-supervised workshops, and auditioning for and acting in other students’ films. Classes emphasize the practical application of acting technique in film, and include a variety of special lectures in topics like Shakespeare, stage combat, and standup comedy. Touching on Stanislavski’s System, the Method, and Meisner technique as starting points, students develop scenes and monologues for the camera and participate in exercises aimed at training young actors to work on camera. Campers also learn best practices for nailing an audition, and participate in exercises aimed specifically at training the actor for the arduous requirements of acting on a film set.

Teens enrolled in NYFA’s 4-Week Acting for Film Camp take a wide range of classes covering both the foundational topics within acting and the craft of filmmaking to help students to better understand the different facets of film.
