Our 10 week on-camera session is back. With more tv shows and casting directors coming to Chicago, there are more opportunities for young actors than ever! The extra two weeks allows students an extra lesson in TV & film acting and an extra lesson in commercial acting. Students will be able to master more challenging concepts and material as well as practice their skills more and retain lessons more effectively. This also gives us more time for students favorite acting games and exercises!

Our curriculum combines modified theatre games, on-camera exercises, and simulated on-camera auditions to free up the young actors creativity and comfortability while providing them with hands-on knowledge of and confidence in the on-camera audition process. One day each session, your child will work with a guest casting director & you will get your burning questions about the industry answered in a parent talkback session.

Kids / Teens Ongoing On-Camera Classes

These classes offer a way for students who have already taken our regular on-camera curriculum to further their studies and keep themselves in front of a camera on a weekly basis. They will join into one of our regular level 1 groups for many of the theater games, and certain commercial scripts, but will split off into a smaller group to focus on more advanced topics for much of the on camera work - including script structure, and film/TV issues. Some of the scripts used will be familiar to them from level 1- but will take a more advanced approach by using more layered / complicated acting concepts. Some scripts will be new to them altogether (typically in the second half of the 8 weeks). Regardless, they should be prepared to be challenged more individually, and look to bring new layers of complexity into their acting by way of the lessons taught. We have a guest casting director at the end of the session and a business talk for the parents as well.

We appreciate the LIKES – and we love the SHARES !!!

Just like that, December rolled around and it’s time to send off some holiday gifts to your industry contacts. Of course, we all want to acknowledge our hard-working agents and managers, and who could forget about the casting directors who called you in over and over again this year?

I get this question from actors all the time: what is an appropriate gift for my agent/manager/publicist/that awesome CD who booked my first co-star role?

So, I decided to go directly to the source and ask some of my industry contacts what they enjoy receiving as gifts during the holidays. Check out their comments below for some great ideas!
