About This Course.

This sophisticated course is for intermediate actors and dedicated beginners who want to discover and learn more about the art of screen acting. To join the ranks of Australia's respected and talented screen actors you would need to consider: what does good screen acting feel like?, look like?, and how do I start?


Week by week we will focus on a particular tool or skill in relation to technique, addressing on the principals of ‘moment to moment’ work, circles of attention, obligatory moment, and exploring realism on the screen as opposed to naturalism. Actors will be working with the camera to develop confidence, an ability to deliver truthful choices in a scene and refine their approach to screen acting. 


We are delighted to be able to present Adelaide actors with this wonderful opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s most highly regarded.
