Acting for the Camera Classes offered by Bethany Constance starting Jan. 26

a713production's Bethany Constance will again be teaching Acting for the Camera workshops through Boston Casting. The classes are being held at the IOS Building, 155 Fleet Street in Portsmouth. Bethany writes:

This is the class you need to take if you want to get into on-camera acting. With all the new films, television shows, commercials coming into Boston you’d better be comfortable in front of the camera.  Through improv exercises, film, tv, and commercial script work, and mock auditions, students will learn all that goes in to being an actor, from character creation to scene study and beyond. Students will learn script analysis, character relationships and development as well as vital ‘insider’ skills to working in front of the camera.  As an actor, it is important to understand everyone’s role on a film set, so you will also get the chance to play director and casting associate during a mock audition. Students will also learn proper audition etiquette, how to approach cold readings, how to market themselves as actors, and how to give multiple deliveries for various scripts.
