Acting for Kids at NYFA
The 2-Week Online Acting for Film II Camp for Kids will use all of the materials and practice from the first week (see level II week one description) to experience the step by step process of submitting, auditioning and booking a role.
Camp Name: 2-Week Kids Acting for Film Camp II – Online
In collaboration with our level II Filmmaking class, the Acting students will go through a casting call from beginning to end. From reading breakdowns and character descriptions to how to seek out acting opportunities, we dive into the ‘business of’ in this second week. This program is designed to help demystify the industry, introduce professional collaboration and instill confidence in submitting and presenting themselves on a professional level. The second week of this camp will culminate in a live table reading of these collaborative final projects.
