Creative Studios of Atlanta Film Academy Presents:

“The Paint

A Children’s Film Acting Program for ages 6 – 13 with Renée Ford Clark.

Renée Ford Clark joins the CSA Film Academy as an acting coach.  Formerly a successful teacher of children with the Academy of Cinema and Television,  Renee will  teach commercial and film acting techniques to kids and tweens after school.

The Paint Shop program will run from September 7 to December 15. The program will  bring out your child’s special gifts for acting and prepare them for the business, all in a fun and nurturing environment. The program includes: – Commercial Acting, Audition techniques, Improvisation for Camera and Film.

Students will learn the basics of perfecting specific characters for commercials while establishing the foundation to build solid acting skills for film.  They will learn how to slate, memorize quickly, master the cold read and get to the “next level” of commercial auditioning.  

During The Paint Shop’s Improv segment,  students work on their listening and quick decision making skills and focus  on being spontaneous, while “agreeing and proceeding” with others to make a scene work. The exercises presented help actors get to the truth of  relationships in and easy and fun way whether working alone, with a partner or in a group.

The film segment trains young actors about the elements of  filmmaking as well as how actors fit in the the filmmaking process. Actor’s perform for the camera (which varies from stage performance), and students gain an understanding of how a film set operates.
