Beginning Acting on Film | Summer 19 | Thursday
Thursday Beginning Acting on Film
Thursdays, 6:30pm - 9pm, 8 weeks
July 11th - August 29th
Raw Footage: $50
In our Summer Session, Beginning Acting for Adults and Teens Classes condense the curriculum into a fast-paced 8 week program in which students apply our exclusive technique, Seven Pillars Acting, to the camera! In the first month, students learn or reinforce the tools and techniques, and in the 2nd month students prepare to film and ultimately shoot their scenes in the final two weeks! This class is great for newcomers to the studio because it gives you a taste of Seven Pillars Acting, and it’s ideal for students who have taken 1 or 2 courses from us in previous semesters because it will help them to APPLY what they have learned.
PLEASE NOTE: Editing is available for an additional charge. Having your scene edited allows for you to see the fruits of all your labor. For a cheaper rate, you can receive the raw footage. (Students will schedule a time to bring in a hard drive to upload scenes.) Students who do not add editing will not receive footage from their shoot! You can still get a lot out of the experience of working on set, but by adding editing or purchasing the footage you get to see how your performance comes together in a final product. Editing must be purchased at the time of enrollment. Students will not be able to add editing after class has begun. Please allow a month for the editing process for us to get the footage back to you.
*This is a 8 week course which has a classroom cap of 18 students. If you prefer a more intimate class experience, opt for the 10 week courses, which are capped at 14 students and begin in June.
Seven Pillars Acting by Sonya Cooke is required of all students taking this course. Purchase the book in Studio Gear in the Online Store.
Attendance is a crucial aspect to the learning environment, so ASoOC takes its Attendance Policy very seriously. If you foresee an absence before the class starts, you MUST notify the studio via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to get it excused. Otherwise, unexpected absences are only excused for industry work (not including background work, auditions or theatre) and illness/injury with a doctor's note. ASoOC must be notified before class to qualify as an excused absence. Any other absence is considered unexcused and therefore unable to be made-up.
MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY
Excused absences may be made up by attending another similar class within 3 months of the absence. No other make-up arrangements or discounts will be offered.
PAYMENT INSTALLATION POLICY
If a payment installation is purchased, a Recurring Authorization Payment Form will be part of the in person paperwork we will need completed. If you sign up over the phone, the form will be sent to you. Complete the form and turn it in before class starts. Without the form, you will not be officially registered in the class and will not be allowed to start your training until you have done so. A $1 charge will be made in order to ensure method of payment is valid.The value will be returned back to the card after the payment goes through. The last payment will be deducted August 15th.
By opting for Installment Plans, you are making a commitment to pay them as scheduled regardless of absences or attrition; it is a legally binding contract. If such a commitment cannot be made, we recommend paying for the course in full or not enrolling.
