“The green screen class was an absolute game changer. There was so much attention to detail as well as bringing in acting choices and using sensory techniques that all combined to make the scenes really come to life. You really have to bring your A game!” GS
This spring and summer of 2020 have been an exciting time for us. The lockdown for the Covid-19 caused every business to think and adapt quickly to a new reality. Having to suddenly rearrange all our classes and coaching to online formats and then update the website has kept us busy, but it has also been extremely rewarding. We quickly found out what sort of connection and bond exists between our Acting Lions and Penny Templeton Studio. All our classes: The Beginning Acting Technique Class, Our Advanced On-Camera Class and both of Penny’s Master Classes Exceeded our wildest expectations. The classes have been close to capacity with long ago Acting Lions returning to class. Zoom has made all this possible.
Being able to teach and coach using Zoom has opened whole new worlds for us. We were approached by Kim Krejus Artistic Director of the 16th Street Studio in Melbourne, Australia, to teach On-Camera Workshops on The Craft Greenscreen Acting. We were contacted by Coleen Kahl, President of Actor’s Connection about teaching a workshop on Greenscreen and Acting on Zoom. With some shows actually shooting scenes and whole episodes using Zoom, these classes are more important than ever. There are new techniques for Zoom and Green screen that actors need to master to compete in the post Covid world. Our initial workshops at both of these venues were a smashing success.
You can now take these workshops on Acting and Camera techniques for Greenscreen and Zoom from anywhere in the world. The next 4-week Greenscreen/Zoom workshop offered by Actors Connection starts on August 24th. 6-10pm EDT [5-9pm Central and 3-6pm Pacific] Here is a LINK to THE CRAFT OF GREENSCREEN at Actors Connection. And if you live on the other side of the world The 6-week Greenscreen Workshop for 16th STREET STUDIO starts on Monday September 21st 10am-2pm Melbourne time. [Sunday 8pm-12am NY Time]

“Thank you so much! The direction we received from you both was so clear and helpful it made this process so enjoyable and fun. Gispa and I love the videos so much, we are keeping these copy’s forever as our first green screen experience!” Fran & Gispa
“Penny and Hank know the technical ins and outs of on-camera technique and working with green screen and Zoom but never neglect the fundamentals of good acting. It’s a brave new virtual acting world out there, and this class is just the introduction I needed!” DJ
