3hr Weekly Class, 5 Week Course
SATURDAY 2:00-5:00 PM (includes 15min break)
The course is delivered IN-PERSON at our studio
The classes run like mini workshops that involve a theoretical component, instruction, discussion, and plenty of on-camera practice sessions with playback for each participant. During playback, the tutor is able to evaluate on screen performances, providing participants with insights on their toolkit.
Designed for aspiring actors looking to expand on beginner level screen acting techniques, the course offers an in depth tour into camera acting.
The course covers essential topics in Character, Facial Awareness, Confidence, Mastering Presence, Continuity, Camera Angles and Sizes and Set Survival.
A key focus of the course is for participants to learn how to work with other actors on camera, workshopping on-screen relationships.
We’ll spend time learning how to‘play the camera’ as actors get to know the requirements of different shots, angles and sizes.
Through specific, exercises attendees will learn how to position themselves in front of the camera, maximising impact. While improving body and facial awareness, actors gain mastery, confidence and control under the very ‘unnatural’ setting that is the film set.
Each week we will cover different topics, all important aspects of camera acting

Mastering Confidence on-set
Improving on-screen body and facial awareness
Adjusting Acting for Camera Angles and Sizes
Mastering Presence and taking risks
