Youth Acting for the Camera
Scene Study / Audition Technique
for the Motivated Actor.
Through the Lens Youth Acting for the Camera provides weekly opportunity for devoted actors to cultivate the physical, vocal, and emotional skills necessary for success in the film and television industry. Within each hour and a half class, students will explore technique, analyze script, perfect rehearsal process and prepare to shoot. Every 12 weeks, students will perform scenes on-camera to be edited by the Through the Lens post-production team and then presented in class for feedback the week following. Along the way, students will develop a unique and effective approach to the work that serves them both inside the audition room and on-set.

Dramatic, not Traumatic…
As with all of our programs, Through the Lens Youth Acting for the Camera classes are rooted in an artistic philosophy celebrating the beauty and joy of the creative process and the journey of self-discovery inherent within. We believe that acting should be dramatic, not traumatic and that it is our responsibility to lead our young artists in a way that leaves them feeling engaged, enlightened, and inspired.
