The film industry in the Tampa Bay area is growing, with many Hollywood productions filming locally and hiring local talent. Some recent productions that have hired local talent include Parker, Magic Mike, Free Ride, Sunlight Jr. and Spring Breakers, with many more slated to film in Florida in the coming year.
When productions cast for supporting roles here, Florida talent needs to be prepared.
Get your training and network with other actors in upcoming on-camera acting classes at the Patel Conservatory in Tampa.
The upcoming Scene Study workshops take students through cold readings, script memorization, character preparation, the filming process and critiques.
