Screen Acting Intensive Courses - 4 weeks

Screen Acting Intensive Courses - 4 weeks

This immersive and practical four week Screen Acting Intensive course equips you with the techniques and industry know-how to kick start your career in acting for film and TV.

From Monday to Friday over four consecutive weeks, you will be taught by a team of specialist screen acting tutors who are both professional actors and facilitator. In addition you'll enjoy industry masterclasses from a Casting Director and an Acting Agent. These experts will review your recordings, provide personalised feedback and be available for Q&A providing you with valuable insights to help you take that next step. Throughout the course you'll work individually and collaboratively on weekly projects while receiving comprehensive training in character development, script analysis, composition and blocking, voice and movement, responding to direction and audition preparation. 

Like many of our screen acting classes, extracurricular practice is recommended to support your work in class, this includes researching topics and learning lines in your own time. Weeks 1 and 2 focus on skills development and in weeks 3 and 4 we'll bring everything together as you work, as a cast, towards your final short film. In weeks 3 and 4 of this course you will feature in a short film directed, filmed and edited by a professional crew. Your short film will be approximately 10mins in length and will be edited and sent via email within 2-4 weeks. Previous students have used the film as part of their showreel, to approach agents and garner auditions.

For more information on course content and structure we encourage you to call us during office hours on 0207 042 8833 or by emailing info@city-academy.com
