What you will learn

  • Acting for stage and acting for camera are two completely separate disciplines. This hands-on practical program at Film & Television Studio International offers young actors the freedom to openly engage with their creative selves, to create interesting and believable characters for the screen. Our primary focus is to encourage students to keep their performance levels truthful, from the rehearsal process through to the final take. Scenes workshopped are all sourced from current Australian film and television dramas, and all recorded work is played back each week for discussion.

What you will get

  • We are offering a 40% discount to new students, and an exclusive opportunity to experience our culture at Film & TV Studio International in a 4-Week Program.
