This immersive course offers industry based talent development rooted in character-led storytelling. The course content covers the unique training programme of our full-time courses in a more condensed format. The course will explore essential onscreen disciplines: script and story analysis, character in performance, onscreen methods and techniques, audition preparation, and employability in screen business.
Our unique training programme has been carefully developed by our team of industry professionals to offer a vocational experience that reflect the real working industry. The training we offer not only encompasses screen acting technique, but blends: movement, Meisner, Michael Chekhov to offer a rounded and varied approach to embodying the work.
You can expect to work on a variety of texts from popular TV soaps to Harold Pinter. You will be given ample opportunity to put your craft into practice, shooting a variety of scenes on our Netflix approved equipment. The footage we produce in class is then made available for you to watch in both group sessions and at home. Constructively reviewing footage proves a valuable learning tool, particularly when comparing performances from the beginning and end of the course.
This a professional development course suitable for adults only. This course is designed for levels beginners to intermediate.
