Lights, camera, action! Have you ever wanted to see yourself on the big screen? Film acting is a completely different art form. In this class, students will learn the differences between acting for the camera and acting for the stage. Through monologues, partner scenes, group activities, etc., students will acquire new acting skills and an understanding of how to act in front of the camera. Students will become more well-rounded as they learn some proper, basic acting techniques that will help them shine on film.

He co-starred in 2017's faith-based film The UnMiracle with Kevin Sorbo and Stephen Baldwin. Brett is also an experienced voice actor.
