GIFT presents: Acting for Film for Girls 10 to 19 years old*

The Acting for Film Workshop is a fun and engaging hands-on program that will empower teen girls to enter the world of acting for film and television, or help them build their skill set. At the end of the workshop, participants will receive a usb with all of the teaching material as well as the clips of themselves on camera to study on their own.

Lots of teens are already familiar with acting on stage but on screen is a big difference! Chantal Perron**, will take you through the technical world of on-camera acting. We will focus on script interpretation, camera technique and making strong choices. In addition, Elise Graham** will educate participants on the world of television production including what to expect when you show up to a set.

This intensive workshop will also provide tips and tricks for a better audition! Participants will gain the knowledge needed to handle the entire process with grace, and to prepare an audition in a fun and exploitative way. Each participant will receive ample time on camera where students learn from others' feedback and performances, as well as their own work through comprehensive one-on-one instruction.

The last hour of the workshop (5:00pm-6:00pm) will be spent talking about agents, unions and next steps for young actors. We will go over the process of how to find and secure an agent and the benefits of joining ACTRA. Parents are encouraged to arrive early and sit in on this presentation so we can answer any questions you may have!

This workshop will run Saturday, April 25, 10:00am-6:00pm at Kingsway Mall in the Community Space. Pizza lunch is provided!

Please note we require a minimum number of registrations to run the workshop; if we do not reach the registrations the workshop will be cancelled on April 20th with full refund. You may cancel with full refund before April 20th, but once the workshop is confirmed, no refunds will be available.
