This exciting, practical course is suitable for anyone wishing to develop their acting for camera skills and promote themselves into the film and television industry. You will learn how to analyse film scripts, create solid, believable characters, focus on truthful delivery and develop a solid inner monologue. You will also learn the exacting technical demands of film acting, from hitting marks, to understanding the importance of eye-line and how the framing of a shot affects the size and precision of performance, as well as gaining a knowledge of onset vocabulary and etiquette.
This unique course employs professional directors to help you experience the 'real world' of the film industry.
Having a strong showreel is a key tool for progression into the industry. During the full day workshop you will incorporate everything you have learnt on the course. Working with a Director, your scene will be filmed and edited with a copy given to you for inclusion on your showreel.
