Summer school content

DAY ONE: DISCOVER TV AND FILM

We’ll set the scene with an overview of the roles on TV and film sets, and learn the main differences between screen acting and theatre acting. You’ll get to grips with new screen acting techniques, learning about relaxation, concentration and points of attention in front of the camera.

DAY TWO: DEVELOPING A CHARACTER

 A key part of screen acting is the relationship between the camera and the eyes. You’ll learn tricks to make the most of this, as well as how to use your imagination to create a realistic character. There will be practical sessions in front of the camera with video playback and friendly feedback as a group. 

DAY THREE: ON SCRIPT

Get ready to break down a real film script. You’ll learn how to interpret a text to help you go deeper into your character. During the final part of the day you’ll put what you’ve learned into practice in front of the camera.

DAY FOUR: THE AUDITION

Learn what to expect and how to prepare for auditions. You’ll take part in special sessions with a real casting director and practise a commercial casting. The day’s sessions will run through a range of practical scenarios to give you confidence in future auditions.

DAY FIVE: THE FINAL PIECE

On the last day will bring together all the techniques you’ve learned and focus on what’s next. You’ll record a dramatic monologue to take away with you for your future studies or career. The session will finish with a discussion about the next steps on your journey into acting, with practical tips and advice.
