Youth On Camera Acting 12 Week Certificate

Young Actor
Youth will have fun while learning the the ropes of acting for Film & TV

12 Week Acting Class For Kids & Teens in Vancouver

The Youth On Camera Acting 12 week certificate is offered biannualy and is designed to accommodate young actors between the ages of 10-18 (classes are broken into two age groups, 10-14 & 15-18) both interested in breaking into the world of Film & TV acting and young professionals who are already auditioning and working. This 12 week intensive is broken up into 3 key modules:

Module 1: Audition Etiquette

In the first 4 weeks, students will learn the do’s and don’ts of the audition room, starting off with cold reading techniques in the first week. After that students will be sent material prior to class to bring in for a “casting room simulation”. 

Module 2: Scene Study

For the second module, students will be paired up and given a scene to work on in class. Students will be expected to have their lines memorized in order to get the most out of this exercise. They will touch on script & character analysis and rehearsal techniques while preparing for our “Youth Matinee Performance” in the final week of this module. Talent agents will be in attendance for this performance, along with friends and family to see the growth in our young actors.

Next Youth Matinee Performance: Saturday, November 10th

Module 3: Demo Reel 

Our third and final module will find students back in front of the camera to create a key part of the actor’s portfolio. Their demo reel will consist of two contrasting audition scenes edited together to give industry professionals, or you the parent, a sample of their hard work. This module will be go as follows:

Week 1: Prep Scene 1

Week 2: Record Scene 1

Week 3: Prep Scene 2

Week 4: Record Scene 2

There will also be an optional Q&A with a local talent agent after the final class to answer any question you or your child may have about furthering their career in our thriving industry.

Certificates will be awarded at the end of the 12 weeks.

Students will also receive written feedback at the end of the course to see which areas they are excelling in and which areas still need development.
