Jump to comments
This ten-day intensive summer school is designed for people aged 17+ who have an interest in developing screen acting skills and techniques. It may be useful for those who wish to enhance existing skills, pursue a pathway to further training or explore a career in the field of acting for camera.
By the end of the short course students should have:
- an understanding of the essential aspects of acting for camera
- developed crucial technical and creative performance skills
- worked as an actor within a professionally supported shoot
- had the opportunity to watch film footage created throughout the short course
Throughout the summer school you will be working with and supported by the Royal Conservatoire’s Acting and Digital Film and Television teachers and guest artists.
You will work within the training facilities and with industry-standard equipment and techniques in order that you can progress to the next level of performance.
A wide variety of screen performance skills will be researched, explored and developed in the summer school. Through practical exercises, reflection and discussion, you will explore how to connect to your emotional centres in order to allow the inner life of the character to play the scene effectively. Many of these exercises have the work of Sandford Meisner at their core.
From the fourth day of summer school scenes and monologues are selected to reflect the students’ casting. The shoots on the following days are designed to allow all students to gain practical experience of the technicalities of filming and an understanding of the actor’s role in the filming process.
On the last two days of the summer school, there will be further workshops that explore casting types and what to expect during a casting.
This intensive short course provides a fun, supportive and challenging environment in which all students can explore and learn.
