Course Dates: 12/02/18 - 19/03/18
Time: 12:15 - 14:45
Location: KS - Keeley Street
Tutor: Gary Grant

Build your confidence and strengthen your camera technique in this improvers class. Work towards creating more truthful performances on camera. You must have completed 'Screen acting for beginners' or an equivalent course elsewhere.


What is the course about?

The skills and disciplines required to develop as a screen actor. We’ll be starting to combine the technical disciplines with script and character work. The course will give students a practical understanding of what this entails.

What will we cover?

• Scene work
• Working effectively with the director and fellow actors
• Hitting your mark
• reverses
• physical continuity.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Play a character confidently on camera while adhering to the technical disciplines required for acting on screen.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Ideally students will have taken the initial screen acting beginners course so are familiar with the inherent disciplines such as ‘hitting marks’ and ‘continuity’, alternatively the students should have at least a basic understanding of these disciplines.

In order to get the most from the course you will be able to:
• Listen and respond to instructions and feedback.
• Communicate clearly in discussion and drama practice.
• Read and respond to a variety of text.
• Give and receive constructive feedback.
• Take notes.
• Work within groups and pairs safely.

Please Note: We do not usually accept under 19 year olds except in special circumstances - please see Students under 19 for more information.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

In pairs and small groups.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Comfortable clothing should be worn. .

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Continue to build confidence with the next course of Screen Acting :improvers or the advanced class if appropriate. You may also want to consider a course in Stanislavski and or Method Acting.

General information and advice on courses at Build is available from the Student Centre and Library on Monday to Friday from 12:00 – 19:00.

This course has been brilliant. I have found it challenging and enjoyable. The tutor made me feel welcome and included. He used examples from his own experience in the acting Industry, which has really helped to prepare me for what to expect in the upcoming months as I go out looking for work. The use of a professional camera man made the experience far more realistic. I would recommend this course to all who have a desire to learn, to perform on set and to gain a better understanding of the industry.
