Acting/Directing is an Intense production course designed for aspiring Art Directors, Screenwriters and Actors who wish to pursue a career in film and/or animation.

Directors will create and produce short scenes taking on the full responsibility of creating clear communication using the audio/visual language of cinema and focusing on the developing and execution of performance on screen. Beyond just holding the responsibility of successful execution of a project, directors will also switch roles with the actor, working from the other side of the lens to better understand the acting process and what kind of specific direction an actor needs to perform according to another director's vision.
