Acting for Camera Academy

LBF Kids & Teens Talent Agency nurtures and supports the creative development of our kids & teens.  Classes and workshops are an integral part of the agency, so our young actors understand the expectations of auditions and casting directors, learn and develop their camera skills and grow in confidence.   All classes & workshops are held in the LBF Studio, 3b, 49 Brown St, Ponsonby.   There are different types of workshops available including a photo update shoot every term:

1.  'Acting for Camera' Academy x8 weekly sessions throughout the term;  

2.  LBF's Web-Series 'Teen Trials & Tribulations' x8 weekly workshops throughout the term;

3.  New Actor Workshops for new actors to the agency;  

4.  Refresher Workshops for any LBF who chooses to take part, to stay connected & refresh camera skills;

5.  Photo Updates every term in the studio with professional photographer.

2.  WEB-SERIES 'Teen Trials & Tribulations' 13-17yrs:   A platform for our teen actors to create & film original work & upload it to the Web Series ’Teen Trials & Tribulations’.  This work is based on real highs & lows that affect teenagers.   It is relevant, fresh and up to date!  LBF have a youtube channel which this series runs from.  This is an organic way for our teens to gain amazing experience, and have unprecedented exposure as young actors. From an agency point of view, aside from helping to ease the frustrations of our young actors waiting for work, this adds a whole new dimension to the profiles we can share about our teens, giving our casting directors really rich insights into their talent.  TT&T Web Series Workshops run throughout the term:  x 8 two hour sessions, comprised of LBF Actors aged 13 - 17yrs.  These teens are the featured actors throughout the series during the term they’re enrolled for.  There are no auditions for these places, the only prerequisites are that actors must be LBF & have completed at least 1 term of LBF Acting for Camera classes, so their camera skills are up to par.
