Casting Call Acting for the Camera Age 8-15

Our camp is for the aspiring young ‘actors’ in your house. Campers learn real auditioning skills by working with scripts for commercials and film readings. Campers personalize characters and follow direction, block for the camera, and read with their ‘co-stars’. They learn improvisation and ad-libbing/off-script as a basis for making acting choices and trusting their instincts.

We include a take-home tutorial focusing on ways to find acting jobs as well as a list of legitimate talent agencies and casting directors in the area. Casting Director Kathy Wickline, CSA of Kathy Wickline Casting who holds over 10,000 casting credits in film, commercials and TV has designed this camp.

We send all footage to a professional editor. Parents have the option to order a USB at an additional cost after camp as a keepsake.
