Screen acting sessions for aspiring and professional actors.
Michelle, Amy and Caroline have worked together for the past four years teaching courses in screen acting at LAMDA, The Royal Academy of Music, Identity and Kingdom.
We believe that continuous playback and feedback in essential for a screen actors progression, so the work is always practical. Whether you want a one to one brush up session, a weekend workshop, or to film a self-tape in a professional studio, we can give the best guidance and support.
WEEKEND WORKSHOPS - 2017
Screencraft for the actor - Part one
The camera... is merciless. If you don't believe what yo're saying, it hears it. If you don't believe it, it sees it in your eyes, it hears it in your voice that there isn't the conviction there - Riz Ahmed
The weekend will provide actors with repeated opportunities to film and watch themselves back, alongside learning basic technical skills. The workshop aims to demystify the craft of screen acting, allowing the actor to feel relaxed and confident.
For anyone who has completed screen craft one, screen craft two will provide an opportunity to look at further technical skills and more complex scene work.
Audition for screen
The best advice for fellow actor is this: know what your job is... an actor is supposed to create a compelling, interesting character, that serves the text and present it the environment where your audition happens, and then walk away. And that's it - Bryan Cranston
A full weekend exploring solo prep, character creation and audition technique. The workshop aims to demystify the screen audition, allowing the actor to feel relaxed and confident. The actors will be provided with repeated opportunities to film audition scenes and watch themselves back, culminating in a self tape workshop.
