What is a green-screen?

noun: green-screen
(in film and video techniques such as chromakey) a blue (or green) background in front of which moving subjects are filmed and which allows a separately filmed background to be added to the final image.

What we’ll be doing:

Our 9 performers will dance (very basic; having fun) in front of the green-screen (at the studio in Pretoria), then during post production images of the “USA and Cowboy Country” will be added in as the backdrop!

How cool – don’t miss out!

Drama Dynamics Showcase Production at The Rockwood Theatre

Drama Dynamics Showcase Production at The Rockwood Theatre

Taking part in weekly group classes Drama Dynamics young actors are hard at work learning new acting skills and brushing up on their techniques as they prepare for the annual Drama Dynamics Showcase Production at the Rockwood Theatre (Formerly Barnyard Theatre)Pretoria in October.

Our talented young actors, aged between 10 and 18 years, are known for their phenomenal performances and are eager to share their talents with friends and family when they take to the stage later this year.

We are always welcoming fabulous, new actors to the Drama Dynamics group, where some are being taught drama skills for the very first time and some are fine-tuning talents, all to ensure an awesome production that will delight the whole family. Our wonderful young actors are learning new acting skills throughout the year to make sure they deliver their best acting performance and most of the pieces will be written by the learners themselves.

Drama Dynamics offers a world of acting enjoyment to all kids who are part of the Drama Dynamics group, keeping them motivated, stimulated and exhilarated through characterisation, physical performance, movement activities and directing. Children learn how to act out fun skits, learn miming skills, explore acting-for-film techniques, do improvisational activities and the Showcase is a chance for them to show their friends and family how they have grown their confidence as young actors.
