And INTRODUCING "LITTLE ONES." Based on numerous requests from parents, Gary has created a brand new, challenging
yet very fun and creative introduction to on-camera acting for ages 4 and 5! Based on learning to play with direction, the little
ones will learn to slate, hit their marks, perform in commercials, learn the rules of improv, work on very short monologues and
short scene work-- all on-camera. They will get to do a little voice over audition, draw their own characters and so much more!
Roberta Reardon, Co-President of SAG/AFTRA (the actors union) recently released a video talking about how young actors
are a vital part of the entertainment industry and they need to make sure that they were having fun while they were developing
their skills. Then she specifically names and thanks Gary Spatz and The Playground Conservatory, a Los Angeles acting school,
for helping these young actors have fun during their time training on-camera. Having the passion for learning the craft of acting
is still only a passion if you don’t make it a craft.
