12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp

The 12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp and the 12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp II emphasize the basic elements of the craft of acting using Stanislavski’s System and scene study as starting points. Hands-on classes in acting, voice, movement, improv and scene study prepare students for the real-life experience of being on a film or TV set and break down physical and internal inhibitions to help each student find the most effective personal sources for the creation of truthful characters. Cameras are used during class time, allowing students to apply what they learn to a series of on-camera exercises designed to develop their screen acting ability. Students should be prepared to devote additional hours of their own time for rehearsal and preparation.

12-Weekend Acting for Film II Camp

Prerequisite: 12-Weekend, 1, 3, or 4-Week Acting for Film Camp
For returning NYFA campers, our 12-Weekend Acting for Film II Camp deepens and strengthens young actors’ training, building upon their foundation of experience with a higher level of classes, exercises, and materials. As a challenge to their flexibility and versatility, 12-Week Acting for Film II campers rehearse, workshop, and film two contrasting monologues and more complex content.

Upon successful completion of the camps, students receive a New York Film Academy Certificate and a copy of their work.
