Screen Acting: Acting For Camera at ACT Brighton
Monday 9th to Friday 13th September 2013
An opportunity to explore acting for camera with an experienced industry professional. This week long course will allow participants to develop confidence and ease in performing for camera as well as covering the technical aspects of working in TV and Film. Participants will work practically as actors with cameras and sound. The Friday showing will allow for screening rough cuts and rushes from the weeks work.
The workshop will be led by members of the ACT team who specialise in each of the disciplines. ACT tutors are both experienced teachers and professional practitioners.
This is an intensive and demanding course which aims to mirror the commitment and rigours of full time professional training. The workshop will be highly suitable for those students who wish to undertake a vibrant and challenging course but are unable to commit to a full time course.
The workshop will also suit those students who are about to embark on full time actor training or graduates, actors or teachers who wish to re-engage with training and hone their existing skills. Places are limited so early booking is advisable.
