placement, working with shadows, and more
EVERY actor will have a speaking part!
Framed Certificate of Completion
A gala PREMIER (location to be announced) with a first showing of the
completed film and lots of fun outtakes!
Best of all, when the workshop is over, you'll have a GREAT short film you can
share with friends and family -- and even use to get acting jobs!

Our upcoming short film, titled Sky Takes a Bite Out of Crime, is written by Charles Carr, Marsi Carr, and Audrey Linder. The plot details the adventures of a group of kids at a sleepover who are wakened by a loud noise and uncover a dog-napping scheme. The comedy/mystery leads the kids to the home of the criminals where they must figure out how to stay out of danger and catch the criminals.

TUITION: $85 covers four roughly three-hour workshops

(NOTE: Principal shooting locations will be in Valley Center and Hidden Meadows. A family
member will need to drop off actors and pick them up after the shoot.)

Shooting begins March 2017
