March 22 @ 9:30 am - 9:00 pm EDT

No Audition Required | 3 Sessions By Age, 7-Adults | Sunday, March 22 | Cost: 205.00

NEW WORKSHOP! Take 1 or more sessions while Wendy is in town!


Wendy Faraone is an influential TV and Film Director whose most well known for her work on the Disney and Nickelodeon channels. If you have studied with Wendy in the past at ACANY, you more than likely learned multi-camera acting technique for sitcoms. (Multi-camera shows are comedic shows aka sitcoms that are filmed in front of a live studio audience using four cameras to shoot the actors – cameras A, B, C and X) 


However, it is imperative that actors also begin to learn single camera technique as well! Wendy states, “Technically all of my shows are hybrids of single and multi right now. Take a look at JUST ROLL WITH IT! There’s a ton of single camera shots in that show!” 


Single camera shows are more often than not dramatic shows, or when used in a sitcom, these are the more understated and dramatic moments within an episode. 


Learn the art of performing dramatic scenes for single camera television shows from one of the industry’s most in-demand professionals, Wendy Faraone! 


Focus of Class:

• Create a believable character for a naturalistic performance
• Develop the tools needed for single camera dramatic acting, such as: playing naturally in your eyes and focusing on subtext, voice and relationship
• Work on grounding and truth-telling
• Learn how to play a believable role while being aware of camera angles


All scenes will be played back for critique.



Wendy is a dynamic and influential director. Her credits include Disney’s JUST ROLL WITH IT, SYDNEY TO THE MAX, WALK THE PRANK, RAVEN’S HOME, KNIGHT SQUAD, COOP AND CAMI ASK THE WORLD and she was also the director of Disney’s #1 family sitcom, LIV AND MADDIE! 

Wendy’s goal is to equip actors with the skills, confidence and dedication required to show up on set and be ready to work. Her enthusiasm and energy prepare students for promising and enduring careers!
