Acting For The Camera with Don Stephenson is a 12-part course that will provide teens and adults an introduction to acting for the camera, where they will gain knowledge in techniques specific to television and film. Using a variety of scripts from productions currently or formerly cast and shot in New York and Los Angeles, Stephenson will provide a practical method of acting for the camera through intensive scene work. Students will have online access to this material, and will be assigned multiple scenes (dialogues) over the course of the class.
