About the On-Camera Acting Certificate Program

This certificate program, offered through the University of Southern California’s School of Dramatic Arts, introduces actors to on-camera performance. During this 16-week program, students will gain insights into preparing for and delivering compelling on-screen performances, whether in film, on TV or as a presenter.

Creating dynamic on-screen characters requires a range of skills, including voice, movement and characterization. In this program, students will receive a crash course in on-camera acting; participants will explore performance techniques, master on-camera auditions and learn how to improvise and work with scene partners.

This program features four 4-week modules (16 live classes total): 

Module 1: On-Camera Acting Technique

Explore how on-camera performers can use their voice, body and movements to create compelling characters that jump off the screen.

Module 2: On-Camera Audition Technique ​

Study specific audition techniques and develop your audition confidence to give you the best chance to book the art.

Module 3: On-Camera Scene Study

Dive into the intricacies of dramatic scenes from film and television, exploring relationships, dynamics, conflict and resolution in both drama and comedy.

Module 4: Improvisation​

Develop your ability to think on your feet as a performer and learn specific techniques for improvisation for film and video productions.
