LA Acting Studios focuses on substantial growth on camera for preteens during this important stage of development in a young actor's career. Actors have access to the filmed footage after every session. Parents are welcome each week and are able to watch their children perform weekly on real sets on our large screen televisions located throughout the building and or our private 25 seat theater room and eighteen foot theater screen.
Our actors have the unique opportunity to work in professionally directed fully filmed scenes with a full crew each month on our 6 custom film sets. Kids are in front of the cameras every week and have access to their filmed footage after every session. This not only gives actors valuable onset experience, but the opportunity to use their stellar footage to create dynamic demo reels. Actors can have us professionally edit together the full scenes with music and sound effects for use with their demo reels for a small fee. We will even pick out the strongest 30 to 45 seconds of your acting in the scene for the best use in your demo reel.
We focus on building self confidence with young children in a caring and supporting way that leads to rapid growth with acting in front of the camera. Parents will have a link to download the footage and see their child's work on camera anytime. This dramatically helps both the parents and children learn from watching themselves on film.
Within the first three weeks, your child will be learning all of the techniques desired by Hollywood casting directors. Techniques taught such as mastering camera angles, blocking, movement, body language, scene analysis, character development, line delivery, and most importantly, how to truly embody the characters.
The final week we film the entire scene with a full crew in one of our six-custom film sets which results in professional demo reel footage for your child. This greatly sets your child apart from other kids competing in the industry. Children can develop professional commercial, dramatic and comedic demo reels. .
Actors that complete this monthly four week workshop are eligible to be considered for guest roles on our web series. (No guarantees) Actors earn their roles with great acting and positive attitudes. LA Acting Studios is intent on helping young actors succeed in film.
