Available to: all students

Schedule: one semester

SPECIAL NOTES: This semester-long course must be paired with another arts course before graduation in order to fulfill Stevenson’s diploma requirement. To fulfill the “f” arts admissions requirement for the UC and Cal State schools, the second course should also be in the theater discipline. Alternatively, students engaged in two seasons of theater productions in a year are eligible to petition for a semester’s grade and credit in the theater arts, which, in conjunction with this course, would fulfill both Stevenson’s one-year arts requirement and the “f” arts requirement for the UC and Cal State schools.

Have you ever wanted to be in a movie, a series, or a TV commercial? This is the class for you! Whether you’re a brand new actor with a dream, or a theater stage actor longing to transition to on-camera work, you will practice the skills you need for the camera, and you will watch and review your performances to gain confidence and discover how you come across on-screen. You will collaborate with Making Movies students who will cast and direct you in scenes. You also will participate in the creative process of a production, including script-writing, directing, camera-work, lighting, sound, and voice-overs. Finally, you will create a showreel of clips that feature your work. Students with introductory to advanced levels of experience are welcome in this class.
