Primarily for those with previous training or professional experience, it explores the expressive potential of performance and the relationship between performers and camera. The Acting for Screen course at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama
will build on your existing skills and focus on the specific needs of the year group.
- Draw on the expertise of Central’s permanent staff team and specialist professionals from the industry
- The course aims to encourage your development as a creative artist with the flexibility to work across all performance mediums, specialising in screen performance
- The emphasis of the training is on producing actors who, on leaving, have a high skill level, with the necessary technique to apply to a screen context.
Specialist, rigorous training
Throughout the first two terms, you will follow rigorous training in acting, which will concentrate on the core skills of voice, body, acting and creative interpretation. The principles of study derive from psychophysical methods, particularly the techniques of Michael Chekhov and Stanislavski.
The range of classes across the first two terms will include screen technique; this will essentially examine the distinction between screen and live performance. It will also cover visual storytelling, working in – and adapting to – shot size, cheating, hitting the mark, shooting contemporary scenes from television and film, and the preparation of different styles of work, including soap, drama and comedy.
