Take Two Film Academy offers after-school, weekend and summer classes in film-acting and making.
Film-Acting classes focus on how to behave and act in front of the camera. These courses allow student to watch and learn from their performances in real time. We focus on the difference between stage and film acting, subtlety and behavior. Students learn how to interact with one another on camera and come away with video experience, head-shot if they choose, and a DVD - online reel. We have classes for 1st-10th graders.
Filmmaking and Screenwriting Classes are team and project based classes that utilize both actors and filmmakers to script, storyboard, shoot, edit and create short films. The teams are made up of both filmmakers and some actors who work together on a project of their choice. Accomplished NYC filmmakers help guild and manage the teams to bring their vision to life. We hold classes from 4th - 10th graders.
