ACTING WITH METHOD
CLASS SIZE 8-10
An introduction to screen acting
Covering all of the basic disciplines inherent in acting for film or television.
Key Course Components
Script analysis, physical continuity, the screen technical requirements, understanding framing, responding to direction and ultimately performance & character creation.
We will also take to the streets to test what we've learnt shooting a professional scene. This scene can make a great starting point for your showreel.
This is a great course for starting out as a screen actor. Also if you've been away from acting for a while this is a great way to refresh your skills.
Saturdays and Sundays 10am to 6pm
WHAT DOES THE COURSE COVER?
All of the basic disciplines inherent in acting for film or television.
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE COURSE?
To improve performance technique, confidence and fluidity in front of the camera. Our exercises are designed specifically to equip students with the knowledge and ability to confidently perform on camera.
WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS LEARN?
The process of 'performance', 'script analysis', 'hitting marks', 'physical continuity', 'understanding framing' and 'responding to direction'
BY THE END OF THE COURSE STUDENTS SHOULD...
Be starting to feel comfortable in front of the camera, be building confidence, have a strong understanding of the disciplines required to be a screen actor. The technical disciplines should now be starting to become second nature allowing the actor to immerse themselves in performance.
The final day of our course will take us on to the streets of London to shoot a professional scene. We will then upload the rushes and if you want the scene edited, graded and sound-mixed this can be done for an additional £79 fee.
As part of the process we will record your work during classes and make it available every week.
All work done in front of camera will be made available for you to download.
A Headshot session to get you thinking about the process of headshots and the kind of roles you want to be seen for. See our headshots section for more details of the process.
