Acting 101 Course

The acting 101 course is just that.  It is the foundation course that will give you the structure to build your career.  Acting is not just about learning scripts and sitting in the make up chair; there is so much that has to happen before you get to that part.


For Example, if the director says he wants to block a scene; what does that mean and what do you need to already have in place to do that?  In this course we will cover the following, to get you ready for Lights, Cameras and Action!





What you will learn?


1) How to prepare for an audition.  The physical and mental warm-ups you need to do.

2) How to understand and memorize a script.  Understanding how to embrace the character you are about to portray

3) How to express emotion through your voice and body

4) Set etiquette is key if you want to be and remain successful in this world

5) Terminology: Understanding the language of the industry is paramount if you want to show your professionalism

6) Your public persona and how to manage it.  There are many do's and dont's when managing your "fans"and the media.  We will touch on this subject so you don't find yourself in a media storm.

Actors Reading Script
The Directors Cut

This is the course where we take all our acting skills to the next level.  We take our basics and spice them up with methodology and confidence. 


There are many acting methods out there, personally, we like combining various methods to design one that suits you. We will look at a few and find what works for you as an individual. 


Once we find your rhythm we will apply it to our script and character.  We will then film your performance and analyze it.  Once you can see your strengths and weaknesses we can then begin the process of refining your craft.  Once that happens the confidence that you need to impress the casting director and ultimately the director will at last shine through.


This class is only for seasoned actors that have taken part in the art of performance.


You have to have a solid foundation to benefit from this course.


For our beginners, you would require to do acting 101 before you can take part in any classes so that you would be able to fully understand how to apply the skill. 


Once you have done 101, we will assess and decide together what would be the best next step for you to follow to build your dream into a reality.
