Looking for fun acting classes in London?

There are many disciplines in the world of acting – among the most challenging and rewarding, is that of Acting on Screen. Acting on screen is a polar shift from treading the boards but it’s a major focus for the modern actor. Due to the immense popularity of film, television and streaming services, work across this media will usually make up the bulk of an actor’s professional engagements in their careers—meaning the related skill sets are crucial to development.

Cultivate Your Screen Acting Skills

This not-to-be-missed course is for anyone interested in acting in TV and film.  Suitable for students who have never been in front of a camera before (but you’re keen to give it a go!) and also for students who have a little experience, and would like to gain new skills to potentially further their careers. You will have the opportunity to play a variety of roles from popular British and American TV and film scripts.  You’ll explore how to build an authentic, original and engaging character, whilst demystifying some of the technical aspects of acting on screen. This includes shot sizes and how they influence your performance, hitting your mark, and single camera vs. multi camera. This will be an active course with a range of activities and the opportunity to get on camera and evaluate your performance through playback. Although you’ll be working hard, you can expect lots of laughs and fun!
