Don’t just learn about making movies — MAKE MOVIES! In our new workshop, we’ll make a full-length feature film together as a group.

Even if you just want to be an actor, you’ll learn everything that happens on a working movie set, and what happens before and after shooting too! Learn pre-production steps like planning shots and locations. Gain hands-on experience operating cameras, lights, and sound equipment. Learn editing and distribution. In this workshop, you will actually produce a film which will be shown in theatres, and you’ll build your IMDb credits.

Avai d’Amico has released three full-length feature films produced entirely in Arizona. Positive is an improvised pregnancy heist comedy described as “Juno meets Ocean’s Eleven.” A Tiny House Christmas is a holiday movie about the #tinyhouse movement. Avai has worked with actors from FX’s The Bridge, Showtime’s The Chi, CBS’ The Young and the Restless and voice actors from Nintendo’s Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Warner Bros’ Mortal Kombat 11.

Monetary Meltdown is a unique and critical class (directed at ages 12-17) for weaving financial literacy into fun acting exercises and other games.

Financial literacy for our youth interested in theatre acting and film acting is imperative; many parent concerns revolve around the well-being of their child.

Parents are often discouraged from allowing or supporting a child’s interest in acting due to uncertainty and the fear of the “starving artist.” This course helps to alleviate those parental anxieties, leaving their acting students with a fun and concrete understanding of financial intelligence.
