Our approach to teaching screen acting is different than most other courses. 

For us, screen acting is not about ‘acting’ per se (you need to know how to do that already), it’s about adapting your acting to the camera and to the reality of working on camera.

That means understanding how different your relationship with the audience is, compared to theatre, and how to use that to your advantage. Learning how editing works and how to give editors footage they want to use. Mastering how to cheat for camera in every single shot and with any type of camera movement. And much more!

All of this must then be applied to the reality of working on camera, which means having no rehearsal process and no director who helps you to create a performance. Most of the time, you’re expected to just give the same performance you gave at the audition (or in the self tape!) and everyone in the crew will take for granted that you know what you’re doing.

Nobody on set will tell you how to adjust your acting for the camera. They don’t even know that’s a thing, most of the time!

So, you need to do it all by yourself!

In our workshops, we aim to give you practical skills you can apply right away to real-life situations. The overall aim is to make you fully independent and in charge of your screen performance so that, next time you find yourself in front of a camera, you’ll know exactly what to do!

Please check out our workshops below. Each one focuses on a different aspect of screen acting and aims to teach you a few specific skills. We believe in quality, not quantity.

If you are interested in organising a workshop for a group, please get in touch! We can also customise workshops to suit your group’s needs.

Our next workshop is Make an Impression on Saturday the 6th and Sunday the 7th of July 2024 at the Exchange Theatre near London Bridge, from 10am to 5pm on both days.
