Acting for Kids at NYFA
Our 1-Week Online Acting for Film Camps for kids are the perfect opportunity for kids to shine as they experiment with on-screen performance and study fundamental acting techniques. At the New York Film Academy, kids learn by doing, working on scenes and monologues in front of the camera.
Camp Name: 1-Week Online Acting for Film II
Our 1-Week Online Acting for Film campers work one-on-one with instructors who are professional film, TV, and stage actors passionate about teaching real-world, hands-on lessons to young performers.
Each camper will complete one filmed monologue. Our innovative acting classes encourage kids to develop the techniques and confidence they need to create believable performances for the camera. Campers apply what they learn to on-camera exercises designed to encourage their screen acting ability.
Monologues – Analyzing, Developing, Staging, personal connection, imaginary circumstances, rehearsals, performance, submitting self tape.
Improv – Students will explore play and storytelling as well as the basic tenets of improv.
Acting for Film – Acting for the frame size, reaction shots, the magic of editing, marks.
Business of Acting/Audition – The basics of audition technique and intro to the business.
Campers will leave the program with:
- One monologue, on tape, that is polished and ready for performance
- Audition basics
