“The content of this course is based on our professional experiences, both as actors and as casting directors, and on our academic training. As screen actors, we are often faced with challenges such as adapting our performances to the specific medium; truely listening while performing; creating unique and sustainable characters; communicating through more than dialogue alone and portraying a character’s sincere and authentic emotions. The Acting on Screen course is inspired by the lessons we have learnt, and continue to learn. The course provides a platform for for aspiring and professional actors to learn about themselves both as human beings and as actors, to explore their love for the art of acting, and to optimise their own performance skills so that it may equal their potential.”
