SCREEN ACTING WORKSHOPS

THE MOST DYNAMIC AND REALISTIC 'ON-SET' ACTING WORKSHOPS AROUND!

  • Fast paced, real-world experience of a film set
  • The subtle differences between screen and stage acting
  • Learn how a scene is constructed
  • How to master continuity

Led by Doug Rao, who has appeared in over 200 hours of prime time television (The Bill, NCIS:LA, Holby, Casualty – and even a film for Luc Besson) – these workshops are designed to be fun, frantic and engaging – just like a real film set! 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • You will gain experience of the technical demands of acting on film
  • Explore the differences between stage and screen acting
  • Develop solid techniques that will help you produce powerful on-screen performances
  • Camera shots, characterisation, hitting marks, technical jargon, close-ups, movement
  • Continuity (or What NOT to do with your hands!)
  • Plenty of on-screen time to develop your technique and performance
  • A fun and supportive environment with feedback and guidance
  • Explore the casting process for TV and film – with ‘mock-auditions’ followed by feedback and a Q&A.

At the end of the course your footage will be forwarded to you.
