The US Performing Arts Sit Com Acting Camp you'll learn-by-DOING class. Every student works every day on up to ten different micro scenes or two to three longer scenes that will help them master the fundamentals of comedy.
You'll study scene structure and learn rehearsal techniques used by the pros. We will use a simulated multi-camera studio to shoot scenes from popular sitcoms. We will shoot every day! This is a learn-by-VIEWING class. You'll watch clips from both current and classic sitcoms. We will teach you how to watch so you'll be reinforcing things you've learned in the scene work. This is a learn-by-WATCHING class. Every single person in the class does each micro scene. If another actor performs before you, you have an example of one way to do it. You can repeat that choice or come up with your own.If another actor performs after you, he or she benefits from your performance. We'll explore different shooting styles. Some longer scenes we'll shoot "LIVE" with 3 cameras simultaneously...like Big Bang Theory. You INSTANTLY see yourself because it is edited during the actual performance. Some other scenes may be shot film-style and edited later...more like Modern Family.
