Film/TV Acting Classes

“If you are like me, and you like to get the feeling, when watching a play or film or whatever, not that the actor is performing for you, but that you are being let in on a secret viewing of someone’s most private life…if you want to know what it feels like to do that in your work…then The Barrow Group is your place.  And moreover, what they teach is simple, without ego.”
Jennifer Landon, Three-time Emmy winner

Our film/tv classes are professional classes designed for actors with previous training and experience.  If you are a beginner actor, you must begin with our Beginner Acting Class.

This 10 week on-camera course prepares the student for the particular demands and challenges of acting on camera. This class is for students who have completed Film/TV Acting Class I and II, to build upon the Barrow Group tools. Much more focus will be paid to continuity and coverage (i.e. medium shots and close-ups). This class also includes exposure to, and hands-on experience in the technical aspects of the behind-the-camera process. Students are introduced and get a chance to work in other crew positions on various scenes (art, wardrobe, makeup, script supervision, lighting, etc.).

*No additional video-cameras are allowed in the class other than the one provided.
