Hone your acting chops in a fun, safe and supportive environment in our interactive online program with amazing On-Camera, Voice-Over and Broadway faculty!

Camps meet online for 3 hours and 15 minutes daily. Private lessons and a final showcase are included in our award-winning Camps!

In this straight acting program, campers will learn how to make bold and interesting character choices. Whether it’s stage, on-camera, or voice-over acting, campers will learn to use their physicality and intellect to create compelling characters!

Campers will learn new skills to add to their actor’s toolbox!

We will be utilizing the Zoom app for our online camps, just as we have been doing with our online classes since early March! Exciting Zoom features like break-out rooms make it possible for campers to work opposite one another! Even though we cannot be in person, we have found that our students still make friends, learn a ton about the art of acting, and have a sense of community that is really important during this unprecedented time!

Private Lessons  - Monologue Study
During the week, campers will receive a free 45 minute one-on-one session with their Main Director to work on an age appropriate monologue. Each actor will be assigned a piece to learn before their session. With the guidance of your Director, you will break down your monologue beat by beat, discover operative words within the text, and identify your objective. Lessons will take place outside of normal camp hours.

Workshops
Campers will take educational workshops led by their Main Director and Special Guest Instructors throughout the week! Workshops include: Voice-Over, Create Your Own Content, TV/Film Acting and The Commercial Cold Read Audition.

On the last day of the program, campers will perform in an online final showcase for family and friends! Zoom in to watch performers present what they have learned throughout the week! (If your loved ones can’t make it live, a recorded version will be distributed via email a few weeks after camp!)

Back by Popular Demand!

We will be utilizing the Zoom app for our online camps, just as we have been doing with our online classes since early March! Exciting Zoom features like break-out rooms make it possible for campers to work opposite one another! Playback is a huge part of our On-Camera camps, and we’ll be utilizing Zoom’s recording function to record the scenes so campers can review their performances each night before we discuss it together as a group the following day.

Even though we cannot be in person, we have found that our campers still learn a ton about the art of on-camera acting, make new friends, and have a sense of community that is really important during this unprecedented time!

In this 5-day program, campers will have the unique opportunity to work with Award-Winning L.A. Casting Director, Lisa London, on on-camera acting and auditioning skills.

Lisa currently has 20 projects in either pre- or post-production!

Notable recent projects include: THE POISON ROSE starring Morgan Freeman, Brendan Fraser and John Travolta, Adam Sandler’s NETFLIX Film,  SANDY WEXLER, EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES starring Angela Kinsey of THE OFFICE, FREAKS starring Emile Hirsch and Bruce Dern, THE MOSTLY GHOSTLY franchise starring BELLA THORNE and SUGAR AND TOYS for FUSE TV.

You might also be familiar with Lisa’s work on HANNAH MONTANA, SUPAH NINJAS, SUITE LIFE OF ZACK AND CODY and HOUSE BUNNY starring Emma Stone!

Lisa London has discovered and/or given these actors their big break in Hollywood: Emma Stone, Jonah Hill, Mark Ruffalo, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Giovanni Ribisi, Adrian R. Mante, Adam Irigoyen & Yari Shahidi to name a few!

Focus of Lisa’s On-Camera Camp:
• Actors will perform a mock audition for Lisa and learn how to prepare for auditions
• We will be recording the classes and analyzing scenes together with the group. Lisa will share her screen with her campers and play every scene back. Get amazing constructive criticism from this casting pro!
• Actors will be paired up with “co-stars” in zoom breakout rooms and will begin to dissect and analyze their scenes. Lisa will join the breakout rooms and work with her students semi-privately in these small online classrooms
• Actors will gain invaluable feedback and training from Lisa London throughout the week
• In addition to directing everyone's scenes, Lisa will also offer amazing feedback and coaching to all of her students
• Parents and friends will zoom in on our final day to watch campers perform their scenes and showcase the new on-camera skills they have learned throughout the week. (If your loved ones can’t make it live, a recorded version will be distributed via email a few weeks after camp!)
• Following the showcase, we’ll have a Q&A with Lisa and ACANY’s Artistic Director, Jessica R. Grosman for Parents and Campers!

Lisa will also use improvisation, an important skill to have both on-set and in auditions. She will run fun exercises that keep actors’ minds sharp, focused and keep the creative juices flowing.

Not only will campers get to work on scenes with Lisa London, they’ll also take daily workshops with Lisa and guest instructors! Workshops include: Scene / Script Analysis, Voice-Over Technique, Commercial Acting and Audition Technique, Audition Improvisation Skills.

DAY ONE:  THE BASICS, THE BREAKDOWN & THE AUDITION!
The week kicks off with a head-first dive into what really defines a sitcom.  Campers will gain a clear understanding of the format, style and schedule.  They will then learn the crucial process of how to dissect a comedy script and prepare for a role.  The day ends with each camper’s big audition!

DAY TWO:  WELCOME TO THE SHOW!
A first-hand simulation of what the first day on a sitcom entails.  Campers will participate in a professional Table Read to learn the importance of this event as well as the Network notes that always follow.  They will then undergo a brief Production Meeting for their scenes to see the bigger picture of how decisions are made that can affect the material.  Their day ends with a rough initial ‘on-stage’ run-thru where we put the scenes on their feet.

DAY THREE:  REHEARSAL DAY!
An intensive on physicality and performance for everyone’s scenes. Campers will get firsthand insight into how much detail goes into every beat and every decision on set.  They will learn about the rewrite process as well as the value of the Producer and Network Run-Thru.

DAY FOUR:  SHOOT DAY!
Campers will get familiar with the various crew positions that help bring a show together and that directly affect their experience on set.  They will then perform their scenes and receive feedback on various takes. We’ll focus on physicality on-camera (what are your character's unique mannerisms, how do they hold their body, etc) and discover together how your physicality can inform your performance.

DAY FIVE:  THE LIVE AUDIENCE SHOOT!
Family and friends will zoom in for their final performance! They will learn the precision involved in putting on a live show, and gain a full understanding of why the rehearsal week is so vital.  The day will end with a Q&A for parents & campers with Jon and ACANY Artistic Director, Jessica R. Grosman.

Each Day- Workshops with Guest Instructors
In addition to working on their scenes with Jon, campers will take daily specialized workshops with Wendy and other special guest instructors! Workshops include: Improvisation for the Camera, Commercial Acting, Dialect Coaching and Voice-Over Acting for Animated Shows and Films.
