The American Arts Film and Television Academy is offering a year-long scholarship for creative who is excited to learn and develop their work through the art, artist, and the business.
"Empowering the Teen" Online Mentorship': Provides emerging artists a safe environment to rediscover their artistic freedom and build an international and prosperous career through art, the artist, and the business. We accelerate young actors and performers beyond their craft and promote growth. The business of acting; the power of voice and movement; self-care and motivation; goal setting and intentions: career development, marketing, and life skills; the history of film, television, and theatre; truth in performance: acting techniques; the artistic self vs the daily self; and creating your own content. Our full-year mentorship includes programmed activities and guidance from international professionals that further develop and enhance your training, whilst translating and refocusing through stage, film, and TV.
"Young Actors" Masterclass: This beneficial masterclass allows young actors to explore the art of finding truth in their performance. This course will push actors to engage in scene study, explore and develop their processes, build and create compelling characters using inner monologues and given circumstances, and uncover the importance of script analysis, writers, styles, and genres of scripts. Learn how to craft the arc of the scene, find emotional connection and discover the importance of timing, focus, and taking direction.
