Students also have the opportunity to learn how to act for the camera. As many of you know, Sears Studio has connected with local film and television producers who are growing their home base for Hallmark and Lifetime movies in our area. This class will address any students interested in preparing for opportunities/auditions in the local film and TV industry.
