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 six week course that meets Tuesdays or Saturdays. The curriculum revolves every six 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! We are expecting our Tuesday and Saturday classes to fill quickly!

The “Working” Actor and Model is an advanced class for kids and teens with previous industry experience and is focused heavily on filming and critiques during play back. This is a great class for both models and actors.
This class equips actors and models with audition techniques to improve chances of more callbacks and more bookings (paying jobs). Emphasis is placed on delving deeper into the audition process, including on-camera auditions for both speaking and non-speaking roles. Because Savannah is a cross-over market, models are encouraged to act and actors are encouraged to strengthen their photo movement skills. Our agency books a lot of principal non-speaking roles and a lot of commercial print. So this course is perfect for a model that needs work in the areas of acting and it’s perfect for an actor that needs work in the areas of shooting commercial print.
