Scenes on Screen

Headshot by Catriona Bonner Photography

Through this course, actors will focus on developing duologues and scenes with other actors. These scenes will be from film & TV scripts in line with the interests and strengths of each actor.

In the final class, this scene will be filmed and a professional headshot captured by Catriona Bonner Photography. After editing the final footage and photographs will be sent digitally to each actor. Each actor will also be presented with a certificate of completion at the final class.

Each class uses different acting exercises to build the following skills:

🎬 Acting and reacting

🎬 Text analysis

🎬 Character Development

🎬 Team Work

🎬 Memorisation

🎬 Blocking

The course not only teaches the craft of acting but offers a practical approach to starting an acting career. At the end of the course, each actor will have:

🎬 A professional headshot

🎬 A filmed scene that can be used as (or part of) a showreel.

🎬 Knowledge of the audition process

Classes run from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm on Tuesday evenings from May 16th to June 20th.

Rena is an exceptional teacher! She was always informative with new techniques, exercises and adopted styles. She was very positive and supportive through the whole process and continues to be too. I cannot recommend Echo enough for those interested in pursuing those long held ambitions to give acting a go!
