Make no mistake about it, as an actor, you are a filmmaker! Without good actors, even the greatest scripts would fail to become great movies. So, when we say that we are "developing the filmmakers of tomorrow" that means you, too! If you want to act in film but you've never been in front of the camera, or you have some theatre experience, maybe even some technical expertise but no real training as a film actor, this workshop is for you!
So you want to act in film but you've never been in front of the camera. Maybe you have some theater experience, maybe some technical expertise but no real training as a film actor. Our Teen Actors Workshop is designed to prepare our students for being on camera as quickly as possible. At The New England Film Academy, we will prepare you for the films you will be performing in during the program, as the Teen Actors Workshop is closely tied with the Filmmakers Workshop, and for the auditions you'll want to attend after the completion of the program. Auditions consist of reading scenes, so a major focal point of the Workshop will be placed on scene preparation. We will still teach techniques and exercises to use but everything will be done in relation to preparing for a scene. Students will also have the opportunity to be directed and filmed in a scene by their instructor. Their scene will be edited and shown at our “Premiere Night”, a screening night at the end of the program. Student’s scenes will all be put on a DVD compilation along with all the student films. So each acting student will leave the program with a DVD portfolio of all their summer work. Space will be limited to 10 participants at our SMCC location and 8 participants at our Lasell College location.
