Teen 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp
Acting Workshops Toronto - On Camera Character Immersion
April 5-6-7, 2019 | For ages 13 - 16
Our mission is to serve teen actors in the most comprehensive way possible through our 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp. This weekend intensive guides actors through many phases of creating and playing a role. Actors are given a series of homework assignments, a challenging inspiring orientation, followed by training day 1 where we engage in character empowering exercises. The bootcamp culminates into training day 2 with the roles being professionally videoed, providing a compelling demo reel scene.
The bootcamp is excellent training for auditioning and working on set.

ORIENTATION SESSIONFriday - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
We cover all aspects of the Milne Studio training system. We will overview the journey you’ll take and make plans to ensure a productive outcome for all.
TRAINING DAY 1Saturday – 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
A comprehensive and in-depth investigation into Milne’s technique, PERGE; helping you effectively breakdown scripts, giving you stronger role prep and improved audition skills. We'll apply precise interpretive steps adding dimension to your roles.
You’ll engage in breathing, energy, voice, movement, interpersonal connection, improvisation, storytelling, monologues, scene study and performance exercises. By the end of the day you’ll be immersed in character and ready to play the role, with residue of the day’s work present until the next morning. Applying best practices greatly improves both acting and performance ability.
TRAINING DAY 2Sunday – 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM
The Set – The day starts with a brief warm up (foundation and interpretation exercises) and discussion about pacing through a shoot day. Learning to connect and reconnect with your role is essential. In character and ready to play the role you’ll move into our on-camera environment. While directors love it when actors hit it on the first take, we’re often called upon to repeat a scene or parts of a scene several times for coverage. Actors have to be ready.
The Performance – Time to step into the ring. Like any sport or engagement, proper preparation is critical to your success. The same applies in acting: we must precisely prepare for the part, make the focus of the work the back, front, top, bottom and all the sides of the role, then trust that we can let the prep go and live in the present, breathing quietly in our bodies on screen. Your performance will be professionally shot then mastered and delivered to you via Vimeo.
