So you're gonna be on set!

Are you ready for the responsibility?

Do you know how a set operates? Key players and their job? How to conduct yourself on set? Read the shooting schedule? You're the lead of a film, do you know how to LEAD?

Many actors dream of "working" but don't necessarily know what to do once they are hired. This class will get you ready! There is no need to fret when you know what is going to happen, how the day will be arranged and what is expected of you on set. Each level of acting has its own responsibilities. This course is designed to prepare you to be on set working and being able to do what is not only required of you but allow you to THRIVE.
