Ready to try acting for film and television?
Your world is full of Netflix, Youtube, videos and live streams, right?... And after awhile you wonder, "Could I do that?"
The answer is, "Absolutely, yes!"
We've developed a fantastic course for teens who are ready to explore acting for the camera.
We'll train you in the techniques required to act for film and television. You'll come away with a a sound understanding of how this differs from acting on stage, and what you need to do to make your performance believable.
Each week you'll learn to act by workshopping and shooting scenes in class. You'll get to watch them back and get feedback on your performance. You'll work on building characters as well as how to make those characters come alive on screen.
Towards the end of the term, you'll film pieces that you can keep and show your friends. Some of these will be 'self-tests', which you need if you want to audition for film roles in future.
