Teacher: Morgan Kail-Ackerman
Session(s): 3 weeks/ Session 1 or 2
Days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Time: 10:30am - 11:55am
Lights, camera, action… zoom! Be a Hollywood actor from the comfort of your own home with a fun storytelling class. Students will learn the basics of acting for the screen, on a screen! Throughout the course, students will work together to create their own shorts. They will all take turns being writers, directors, and actors to put together fun and exciting projects all together on Zoom. This class will be a synchronous class. The first half of the class is focused around learning the basics of theatre/film (directing, acting, writing, tech & design) and the second half will be a direct application. Students will be in break-out rooms and working in small groups to create their own scripts, perform their own monologues, and direct small scenes. There is no small actor on the big Zoom screen!
