The Motion Picture Acting Program

The Motion Picture Acting Program trains actors how to prepare for a role in film or television.

  • Students perform on actual film sets and in front of the camera while discovering the acting style that works for them.
  • Students learn on set etiquette, the dos and donts, casting calls and understanding the business of film acting.
  • Students graduate with a featured role in a short film, additional material for a demo reel, a head shot, and ready to audition.

Students attend classes twice a week for thirty-two weeks.

Graduates earn a Certificate of Achievement, audition for a local talent agency, have a completed film portfolio and receive continual guidance and casting notices from our career services.

Note: This program is for domestic students only.  International students are not eligible for this program.
