Course summary

About the course

We believe that the best screen actors are trained in theatre. This is a unique course that combines focused screen acting skills with a foundation in performance making and collective creation. The course offers a focused pathway of training in performance for screen, with options to explore further across Drama, Media, English, and Music. You will study both established and emerging approaches to filmmaking and have numerous opportunities to perform in front of the camera, as well as in live theatrical situations. By the end of the course, you will be comfortable working in a variety of live and multimedia performance situations; be familiar with the basics of screen-based production from the perspectives of director and videographer as well as actor/performer; and have substantial experience working both independently and collaboratively in diverse approaches to performing and screen arts.
