The Actors Centre

Filling the Frame

WHAT IS IT? This workshop is aimed at improving screen presence and screen acting by enabling actors to explore the boundaries of their performance. HOW WILL IT WORK? We will take a look at memorable performances in films and then actors will experiment with their own performance levels. Bring along an already prepared piece that challenges you as an actor. We will spend as much time as possible shooting and reviewing performances, giving you maximum on-screen time. This workshop is open to newcomers and those who have worked with Deva previously. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? This workshop will help you to really challenge yourself emotionally as an actor and prepare you for the next time that you are being filmed on an acting job or at an audition. Price: £55.
