SAINT PAUL, MN — Acting is the most acceptable method to learn how to direct. Theoretical and practical techniques to directing actors for cinema are covered in *Online Youth Film Actors Directing Camp*, where participants study acting and directing using a hands-on approach, looking at examples and practices from film auteurs.

This program will teach acting methods with modern modifications and other points of view. Participants will also go through the director's responsibilities on a crew, casting and the ins and outs of directing actors for the camera.

About the Program:

In this Film Actors Directing Camp, Each Student will direct and act in a one-minute scene that will be edited into a complete piece. The goal is for each student to leave with a set of directing tools that may be used in various situations. No prior acting or directing experience is required; only a desire to act and direct is needed!

Tools needed:

- Students should have an iPhone or Android phone with at least 3GB of storage (along with a charger). iPads are also acceptable.

- It is recommended, but not needed, to use a video editing program.
