On Camera

Expanding our Summer 2020 On Camera program, this program will now include two distinct components: Acting for the Camera (1 day per week) and In the Writer’s Room (1 day per week). Students are encouraged to take both components for the full On Camera experience, but may also take each class separately.

Acting For the Camera: Allow the camera to capture the full impact of your eyes, thoughts, and reactions! Using scenes and commercial sides, we’ll dive into acting technique, while meeting the technical demands of the medium. Learn about eye-line and focus, and how to maximize the nuances of your performance for a variety of camera angles.

In the Writer’s Room: Join PGT’s virtual writing room this season! Working with your team, you will create fresh content; from developing and pitching a new idea, to storyboarding and writing a script, to a finished product which you will cast (maybe with your own family members....and pets?!?!) direct, and film!

Students registering for both sessions receive a discount. Or combine either session with our diverse programs for an adventure-filled season at PGT!

Final Showcase: a livestream Screening of our On Camera Class' finished work for family and friends!

HYBRID: Students will have the opportunity to meet in-person in small groups to work in front of and behind the camera.  About PGT Hybrid Programs >>

PGT Hybrid Programs

These programs will have both an online and an in-person component. Please read each program description for more information. Hybrid programs are open to all students, even if you are unable to attend in person. Students will be able to participate fully remotely in these programs, so if you are not ready to be in the building, or if you are feeling under the weather on an in-person day, you can still participate in the in-person component via remote access.
