Aimed at those aged 14-17, this masterclass is an introduction to Screen Acting for those who might have minimal screen acting experience or have come from a theatre background and are looking to act in television and film.
Participants will do multiple self-tapes and, through a series of workshops, build a tool belt of acting techniques. Using a mix of classical acting training such as Naturalism , Stanislavski text analysis, Meisner Technique and a whole variety of other tips and tricks, participants will break down the process of preparing for a screen role, as well as give participants a deeper understanding of how to audition for television and film roles. The main aim of the course is to simplify the process so that you can understand how best to tackle any script and feel at ease on camera.
