This term’s acting for TV/Film course we will be split in to two themes, focussing on cutting edge TV and looking at classic villains and heroes from movies and television, and performing their best scenes. We’ll investigate what makes these characters great, looking at character motivation and on-screen performance techniques and set up to create our own versions of these iconic scenes. First and foremost this class is about enjoyment and freeing you as an actor so you can climb into the shoes of some of cinema and televisions most iconic characters!

You could either do Theme one, Theme two, or both! Each of the themes have been designed to complement each other so students are encouraged to book both, though it is not compulsory.
