Acting for Camera Masterclass: (8-16yrs)

Monday 28th September – Wednesday 30th September – FULL (waitlist only)

Day 1: Delve into the world of film and television and learn about how to do a successful audition. Learn how to present to camera and develop an authentic and natural performance. Come laden with any special talents you may have so we can load up your unique YouTube video with your individuality. Tell a joke, play an instrument, sing a song, we don’t mind! As long as it’s YOU and you feel like you’re pretty good at it.

Day 2: Work with TV and film scripts as well as TV commercials to present to camera in pairs and small groups. The director will work to produce a more polished performance and then watch it back to gain further understanding of the craft of acting for camera. Working with a professional actor from the industry this course will be a great way to develop those acting skills.

Day 3: Final day of filming will mean you will need to have your A game on. We will be running duos and groups to film your well-polished and rehearsed scenes for camera. There will also be some improvised scenes you will have spent the past 2 days practicing and for those really keen students, a monologue as well! Working in the professional studios of an Advertising Agency will also mean you will have access to the best equipment and professionals in the industry. For those wanting to pursue a professional career, this will be perfect for you. And of course, you receive a showreel at the end of it!
