SHORT COURSES

Keep flexing your acting muscle and pushing yourself forward artistically with our wide range of workshops and short courses taught by professional actors, directors and casting directors!

VIC

This is the perfect course for any actor wanting to challenge themselves. There is no better way to start the new year than with an intensive designed to prep you and propel you for a strong year ahead. 

 

Over one week students will build an actor/director toolkit to aid in creating and capturing characters for screen. Each class will combine scene analysis and practical exercises to inspire imagination, cultivate a healthy actor/director relationship and create complex screen characters. Moreover, the intensive will teach students how to tell a screen story and how best to give and receive performance feedback.
