Program Faculty Neema Barnett
USPA gave me the two best weeks of my life!
Acting for the Camera DetailsActing and performing in front of the camera although similar to theater is distinctive in approach and technique. This acting for the camera camp is a must for anyone wanting to know about acting for movies or television as it offers the camper the experience of working in single camera acting techniques and understanding what the relationship is of the camera to the performance. Campers will be trained in many of the technical requirements that an actor must know to work successfully in the profession. Workshops in cold reading, audition techniques, camera-combat and focus concentration are part of the campers week long experience. Focused on performance, campers are trained by professionals in the motion picture and television industry and each camper will get the experience of working in front of the camera to realize a finished scene. Guest speakers may drop in from time to time to share their knowledge.
"I appreciate as a parent that such a program exists to offer a student such a rich experience in an area of interest which will only serve in the most postive manner no matter what the student chooses down the road. The campus (UCLA) was so lovely and the teachers were exceptional. My daughter has had 2 magnificent summers and will hope to have the chance again. Thank you."
