So, you’ve finished our Acting for Beginners course (or a similar foundation course elsewhere) and you now want to work more closely on acting for the screen?
This 8-week Screen Acting I course will give actors aged 18+ the opportunity to work on short scenes taken from film and television shows.
Each week will begin with taking actors through a series of ensemble activities and improvisation exercises to help relax and loosen them. And then through a Stanislavski approach of analysing the scripts for given circumstances, the actors will work towards creating compelling and truthful characters for the camera.
Students will also learn about the difference between stage and screen acting, tips and tricks for making the camera work for you and other things like focal points, working within a frame, dynamic and active character choices on screen and so on.
Students will get the chance to film their weekly scenes and then watch over them for feedback.
