Lights Camera Action is our introductory class to the exciting world of acting.  This class is beneficial for beginning actors and actors with only theater experience.  Acting for the camera is a different ballgame when compared to theater performances.  Our course is designed to focus on the three tools of a TV/film actor: voice, body and face.  Actors learn how to slate for the camera while learning how to project confidence with humility.  This class covers everything from public speaking and giving a firm handshake to posture and poise by learning runway techniques and photography movement. This is the perfect class for anyone who struggles with self-esteem. In the world of acting, you’ll need more than just talent. You have to have “people skills” to carry yourself through an audition or casting. We teach our actors that they have to be just as great at “small talk” as they are in front of a camera. Many of our students have been hugely successful in job interviews and college entry interviews because of their coaching at Halo.  This is a seven week course that meets Saturdays.  The curriculum revolves every seven weeks, meaning there is no start or end date so you can begin any week you’d like.  A television and camera are used in this class so that students are able to see themselves on camera and receive critiques from each take. Sign up now!   Saturday classes fill quickly!
