So, you’ve finished our Screen Acting I course (or a similar foundation screen course elsewhere) and you now want to challenge yourself with longer texts and complex character development?
This 8-week Screen Acting II course will give actors aged 18+ the opportunity to continue their screen practice on detailed 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 get the chance to film their scenes and then watch over them for feedback.
