On-Camera Classes

Experienced On Camera (All Ages)

Experienced On Camera

Experienced On-Camera is for advanced students already working and training in TV/film and will have a mandatory audition process for acceptance. With many of the same elements of On-Camera 101 there are higher expectations of the actors in this class. From being completely off book when asked to be and taking direction at any moment. It will also feature a multi-camera setup teaching actors about the importance of continuity, hitting their marks for focus and real life logistics to prepare you for a professional TV/film set. Students will be shown how set works from when you arrive, blocking rehearsal, camera setup, to your first take all the way through the “martini shot.”

THIS COURSE HAS A MANDATORY PREREQUISITE:

  • Previous on-camera work
  • Semi-professional to professional experience in front of the lens

Rabbi Peter Berg

One of the best decisions we have ever made as parents!

Giving our son the gift of training at Orbit is one of the best decisions we have ever made as parents. Orbit provides the highest level of skills in acting, voice training, and dance; but mostly the skills that are needed to be successful in life. Tony, Chris, and the entire Orbit team change lives every single day.  Orbit is a family and being a part of it is one of our great blessings.

Unlike any other theatre arts program I’ve experienced!

The incredible programming, top-notch instruction, the amazing work ethic, and—most importantly—the positive attitudes amongst the students and faculty is truly unprecedented. I’m inspired to continue performing every time I am able to visit Orbit!
