Welcome to On Camera Training

Thank you for visiting OnCameraTraining.com. Brenna McDonough has been teaching her students the techniques to enable a successful career in acting and on-camera presentations since 1994. OCT classes are for actors, models, politicians, lawyers, doctors, stay-at-home moms and anyone else who wants to prepare themselves for being in front of a camera in a good, safe, quality environment. Brenna also co-authored the book "You Can Work On-Camera: Acting in Commercials and Corporate Films", a text used in numerous National colleges. Do something for your career today by registering for an upcoming on camera class.


Thank you to everyone who has been a student in one of my Theatre Lab, Shakespeare or OCT classes. We at On-Camera Training want you to stay ready and creative for a bright future.

I am working and coaching from my home office. If you’re feeling a little rusty or just want a practice session, now might be a good time to schedule a coaching. Whether you need monologue, audition or self-tape prep “there’s no tomorrow like today”. If you are re-inventing yourself or just want to “dust off” your skill set, this is where to start. Zoom coaching is $60 per hour.

Our upcoming 4-week evening class will give you the opportunity to feel confident at your next audition. Payment options are Pay Pal and Venmo, under The Register tab on this site.

Commercials and Corporate Videos
Tuesdays, June 15, 2021 – July 6, 2021 from 7:00pm – 9:30pm

We will work with a variety of copy and scripts during class. How to Slate, cold reading, self-tape auditions, sources of work will all be covered in class. We will discuss your headshot and resume and how to market yourself in this market and others. Students will rehearse and be evaluated during class. Each student will be recorded in class. Class size is limited to 8. Cost of class is $500 for 4 weeks.

In addition to teaching and coaching privately by Zoom, I also teach 6 week on-camera classes for Theatre Lab and Shakespeare Education. Please check their websites for new and continuing classes.
