“Take risks, don't ever play safe is the main advice I've taken from the course, and I look forward to applying it to future projects”
Acting for Film (Level 1) is the school’s screen-acting course and has been developed for people who are serious about becoming a film actor or wish to develop existing acting skills for the medium of film – though no previous experience is required.
Taught by an acting coach and professional film director, students will act in numerous filmed exercises that will be analysed in class so that students can learn from their mistakes and improve their performances as the course progresses.
Students will also learn what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera by directing and acting as crew (operating the camera and recording sound) on a number of short exercises.
