Is there a difference between acting on stage and for the camera?

  • Do you look into or away from the camera during an on-camera audition?
  • What is matching and how do you deal with it? 
  • How do you sustain a performance when you’re shooting out of context?
  • How do you hit your mark and stay in character at the same time?

ACTING FOR THE CAMERA is designed for the actor who desires to either refresh or expand their craft in the arena of film and television acting.  Led by Price Hall, film director (MISSISSIPPI MURDER, starring Malcolm McDowell & Luke Goss), actor and coach.
