About the Classes
'Tis the season for spooky things that go bump in the night! In this fun and rare online acting class, actors will perform age-appropriate scenes from films and TV shows in the thriller, horror, and sci-fi genres. Taught by acting coach, casting director, independent filmmaker, and horror lover Mark J. Parker, actors will get a better handle and understanding of how to perform authentically in these popular genres focusing on fear. Through scene study and improv exercises, the group will work on their range of emotions, from small and nuanced to big and loud, all from the comfort of their homes. Be prepared to scream and scare! Memorization will be required during some sessions.
