ONGOING ON- CAMERA

The Freeman Studio holds on camera and stage acting in equal esteem. We take pride in the quality of our teachers and the class offerings of our On Camera division. These classes consist of weekly sides designed to strengthen each actor's ability to act on camera, as well as to audition effectively. They are offered on a constant, year-long schedule with four-week, renewable cycles. Once an actor is enrolled they may renew their spot as long as they wish.

The On-Camera Intensive

 

Who is it for?

New students, who have not previously taken a prior On-Camera Intensive at The Freeman Studio.

The 2-Day Intensive is the prerequisite for students interested in enrolling in an ongoing on-camera class with Vance or Jessica.

 

What is included?

The On-Camera intensives are taught by either

Vance Barber or Jessica Cummings.

It will focus on heightening your auditioning skills and acting technique, utilizing actual sides from recent Film & TV auditions and on-camera playback.

 

When?

Taking a Krakower technique class/intensive [either at The Freeman Studio or elsewhere] is a prerequisite for Vance Barber and Jessica Cummings' classes.  We have been offering this as a 2-day intensive. However, right now their classes are so popular that we have a wait list we cannot fulfill.  So for the time being, we are not offering the On Camera Intensive as we don't want to add more actors to a growing wait list.  We are hoping to add more classes, but at this time, that's not possible with the teacher's schedules.  But, rest assured, we will update this space when new dates are scheduled!

 

Cost?

Total cost for the two-day intensive: $325

Payment plans are available.

 

How to Apply?

A maximum of 16 actors will be selected for the On-Camera Intensive.
