This course explores the differences between acting for stage and screen. It is aimed at those who wish to broaden their media skills and gain confidence in front of the camera and microphone. Working in small groups and pairs, students will look at the actor’s relationship with the camera (particularly eye-line) and learn how to adapt truthful character for film, television and radio. The programme will also cover protocols, the on-camera audition process, sight-reading a camera and radio script, what to expect on set and the opportunity to film short scenes during the week. There will also be opportunities to learn how to self-edit, to tell the story and influence the audience.
Participants aged 17 or over can book for the East 15 summer courses on-line.
