Shannon Flynn is BACK!

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!

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 Shannon and ACANY Artistic Director, Jessica R. Grosman.

Each Day- Workshops with Guest Instructors
In addition to working on their scenes with Shannon, campers will take daily specialized workshops with Shannon and other special guest instructors!

Workshops include:
• Improvisation for the Camera with a pro from the Improv World
• Commercial Acting with Artistic Director, Jessica R. Grosman who worked in casting for years
• Dialect Coaching with a Dialect and Speech Pro! Learn how to speak in a British, New York and Southern accent
