Lance Dreesen, Film Director -- Children and Teen Workshop

The class is dedicated to encourage young people to use their own behavior, personality, and charm in their roles to create unique, original characters that are truly their own. Film director and acting instructor Lance Dreesen will teach students to trust themselves to live naturally and effortlessly on camera. Through the Meisner Technique, the child, teen or young adult will learn about the technicalities of working on camera, how to make a scene real, as well as various audition techniques to make them stand out to casting directors -- and gain freedom in front of the camera, as well as self-confidence that can be applied to all areas of life.
