Introduction to Acting
A professional director will lead you in this workshop and provide you with a solid foundation to help you understand the requirements of acting.
You will find out precisely what it takes to become an actor to begin your journey.
Along the way you will discover exercises and techniques to help and encourage you to start acting!
You will now be immersed in the world of production! And you will learn all the practical techniques to build your confidence in performance, help you master the technical requirements of a screen actor and understand the do’s and don’t’s of screen craft.
Students will complete the course feeling assured and confident in their screen acting ability, with further focus on career and armed with material for their showreel.
Becoming An Actor is aimed at those currently outside the industry, and will provide a similar level of training as is given to professional actors, providing you with the opportunity to learn the tools of the trade and grow and flourish as an actor.
Your journey begins with ‘Part I’ and you will learn the foundations required to be an actor.
The course is taught within an environment that aims to replicate the professional rehearsal room and the self-discipline, creative risk-taking and professional work-ethic involved in becoming an actor!
