Advanced Acting for the Screen


This advanced course is designed for actors who have made a serious commitment to the development of their craft, and who have the desire to build a successful career as a working, professional actor in film and television.

Repetition is the mother of all learning. It is also the enemy of spontaneity. 


Using challenging and dramatic scripts, you will explore advanced, practical on-set tools and methodologies to reliably create nuanced and complex performances again and again. You will advance your understanding of holistic script and character analysis, hone the art of sincere emotional engagement, track and plot character and relationship arcs, further explore the tools and methodologies that will allow you to make dynamic and compelling performance choices, and advance your ability to develop and create believable, engaging and moving characters.

Entrance to this course is either by the completion of previous screen performance courses; or by the completion of the Foundation and Intermediate acting courses; or by the provision of a comprehensive acting resume; or by audition.
