A Bootcamp for Your Career
For those of you with previous training in high school drama, university theatre or introductory film classes/workshops, this course is for you! This is where you learn VADA’s techniques and basics, covering all areas of film acting. Missing out on this foundation can stunt your growth in our more advanced classes or leave holes in your training.
We start with text analysis, breaking down the script and preparing your material. You work with scenes while getting into emotions and characters. You will learn the elements of a scene, such as beats, transition of power, and high/low status. Then we film your work and show you camera techniques and the technical aspects of acting on set for the camera. Next, you learn about auditioning for Film/TV/Commercia roles, on-camera cold reads and audition room etiquette.
Included in the On-Camera Acting Intensive is an intro to the business side of things. You will learn more about the industry, including headshots, building your resume and sending out those packages to agents!
