The Lir Academy - Introduction to Screen Acting



This practical 10-week course introduces students to screen acting and develops confidence in front of the camera. The course will cover the fundamentals of screen acting technique and dispel some of the myths about acting for screen. Students will work with sound and continuity crews, become familiar with the filming process, equipment, roles of the crew members, and filming terminology.

The course will begin with camera-based classes that are designed to show students how the camera can aid a performance rather than hinder it, and at the end of the course all participants will have an edited recording of their own scenes filmed in class.

Suitable for aspiring actors who are interested in screen acting, film acting and acting for beginners classes.

Date, Time and Place
