Acting in front of the camera

In this workshop your pupils will be real film stars on the big screen for a little while. Together they will act short scenes under the guidance of a director and discover what makes their acting real.
Feeling very sad about the death of a little bird, or just hanging out at the station. In this workshop, pupils will experience how to ‘play’ different emotions with real feeling.

Big screen

In this workshop, pupils will watch film clips together for inspiration, then go on stage. They will act short scenes which they will then see on the big screen immediately, with the director providing feedback. Together, they will discover in a playful way how to play a part convincingly using tricks of the trade and focusing on their breathing, body and concentration.
This programme is highly suitable to prepare for end-of-year films or musical productions.
