  • Build Your Confidence On Screen

    City Acting Screen Fun 1 has been designed for the beginner interested in learning the techniques of acting on camera. You do not need any previous experience, just curiosity and a computer.  If you have taken an in-person City Acting Beginners or Intermediate course, Screen Fun would also suit you excellently. 

    In addition, the workshop is perfect for anyone who would like to be more relaxed and improve their on-screen confidence in their social and professional life; specifically,  you'll learn how to present your best self on Zoom and vital techniques to manage the inevitable 'Zoom fatigue' that many people are currently experiencing. 

    The classes run weekly for 6 weeks, 7-9pm:  
    * Online - Every Monday from 11 January until 15 February, 7-9pm
    * Online - Every Saturday from 23 January until 27 February, 11am-1pm
    * Online - Every Monday from 22 February until 29 March, 7-9pm

    Fees: 6 week course £95
    Max size group 8 participants

    The course will help you build confidence on screen and learn the best ways to connect with yourself and your scene partner, friends or colleagues.  You will have the opportunity to: 

    •  Discover the power and simplicity of allowing yourself to be you on camera
    •  Manage on-screen nerves, focus, and fatigue 
    •  Explore the fundamental skills all screen actors need
    •  Learn renowned methods to make text come alive on film
    •  Feel what it's like to be immersed and connected in a dramatic scene

    City Acting Screen Work 2 has been designed as a follow on from City Acting Screen Fun 1 but is open to anyone who has completed an equivalent beginner's course or who feels they already have basic screen experience.

    The classes run
    weekly for 5 weeks, 7-9pm:  
    * Online - Every Wednesday from 24 February until 24 March, 7-9pm

    Fees: 5 week course £80
    Max size group 8 participants

    The course will help grow your self-confidence as a person and as an actor and will build on the knowledge and practical experience of City Acting Screen Fun. You will have the opportunity to:

    • Work more closely with the text and learn the fundamentals of building a character
    • Learn the power of the camera and how to relax and let it in fully
    • Rehearse and perform scenes from well-known screenplays
    • Watch and discuss your own and your classmates' performances (not obligatory)
    • Expand your knowledge and experience of acting tools and techniques
    We'll send each member of the class a zoom link in their confirmation email which will be used for the duration of the course. Please ensure you have a bit of space to move around in and that you have a working camera. We will not be recording any of the classes and, for privacy reasons, prohibit any one to do so.  This is a beginners class and as such encourage all members to have unselfconscious and spontaneous in-the-moment connection.  

    The acting classes are spread over 5 or 6 weekly sessions of 2 hours each. Max size group for this course is 8 participants. We keep group sizes small in order for the facilitator to give you a lot of individual feedback and to encourage an intimate, friendly and fun atmosphere in which you can learn and grow.
