The Actors Centre

Get Into Screen Acting

This five-day course for newcomers to the profession offers an exciting, dynamic and creative introduction to acting and auditioning for camera. 

You will gain experience of the technical demands of acting on film, explore the differences between stage and screen acting and develop techniques that will help you produce powerful on-screen performances. Working in a small group we will look at camera shots, characterisation, hitting marks, technical jargon, close-ups, movement and continuity. You will have maximum time on-screen to develop your technique and performance in a supportive environment with feedback and guidance from the workshop tutors and the rest of the group. You will also explore the casting process for TV and film, looking at auditioning on camera, and you will get the chance to try out ‘mock-auditions’ followed by feedback, advice and a casting Q&A.

At the end of the course your footage will be forwarded to you.


Upcoming course dates:

February 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10.30 - 17.30

Cost: £495
