DIPLOMA SCREEN AND MEDIA: THE ACTOR PROGRAM
ACTING and WRITING for FILM, TELEVISION and LIVE THEATRE
This course is designed for aspiring actors with passion, creativity, imagination and a real commitment to gaining and sustaining a lasting career as a performer in screen and live performance. Although principally based around the work of Stanislavski, the program does not dictate a particular approach to acting, but rather gives the individual student the opportunity to develop as independent creative practitioners with their own approach to acting and performance.
Students participate in practical workshops and are introduced to the fundamentals of camerawork and current technologies in film and TV, including green screen and facial recognition for CGI characters, voice-over and studio techniques for commercials, radio, film and television. At the core of the training is a belief in an ensemble approach to performance. Students are considered to be part of a Company, where each actor has a vital contribution to make to the group. During the course, emphasis is placed on devising original work through improvisation, as well as the study and performance of existing play texts.
The program provides the opportunity to develop as a creative artist, able to work and thrive in multiple contexts and creative environments.
Diploma students attend 2 days per week for 36 weeks. As a result, students have time to work part time in the creative industry, check out some live theatre, go to castings/auditions or work on their own skills.
