Film Acting (Fall 2019)

Film Acting for Kids
Film Acting

Ages: K-2nd Grade


Do you have a kid who’s full of personality and is begging you to be in the movies or on TV? Or maybe your child is on the shy side and is just starting to come out of their shell? Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind class that brings Hollywood right here to the Upper East Side! Each semester, the class will vote on ideas of movies. The students audition for roles, get cast in parts and launched onto a real film set to experience movie-making! We will teach them the basics of acting on-camera, staying focused and storytelling, all while continuing to build their confidence to be a lead on-camera and in life. Our elite team of professional filmmakers will create blockbusters with top-notch direction, costumes and cutting-edge cameras. The semester culminates in a red-carpet premiere of all films created at a real movie theater! Keep an eye out as all films premiere on our viral YouTube Channel (Applause New York) to our 700,000+ subscribers and add to our 400 MILLION views!
