Production Description

Seeking acting students for The Indie Film Experience, a film acting class with a scene for your demo reel. Owner states: "This is for any actor with some experience/training, looking to start or add to their acting reels. You will gain usable, quality HD footage of scene as a digital file for your reel. You won't just be directed. You'll be able to explore your character more in-depth by learning professional acting technique that will help you become a better actor. You will get original scenes written specifically for you that showcase your talent and learn what it takes to land the role. During the class, each student will have a mock audition, mock screen test, and gain the experience of what it's like on an indie film set. You will gain a movie 'short' credit to put on your resume and IMDB as you work with industry professionals. You also learn how to market yourself more effectively in the business after the class. All script writing, lighting, sound, camera work, blocking, editing, and acting technique gained will not let you down. This scene will be something you will be proud of. When class is finished students will have the option of signing up for part two of the class, where they continue filming two more customized scenes written for them to add to their reels."
