After last term’s sell-out success, we are pleased to announce the return of our 6 week exploration of screen acting basics with Luke Morgan. Luke is the founder and director of Project Spatula, a filmmaking collective based in Galway (projectspatula.com). His films have been shown in Film Festivals all over the world, including the Galway Film Fleadh, Chicago Film Festival, Cannes Short Film Corner and the Polish International Film Festival. A graduate of the Film & Documentary programme at GMIT, he has worked with countless actors of all ages, from professional to amateur.
The first 4 weeks will be spent getting comfortable in front of the camera, hitting marks, adapting performance for long, medium, and close shots, and much more, before spending the last two weeks rehearsing, filming and watching a scene or monologue for screen. By the end of the course, students should have a greater understanding of the different demands that screen work makes on the performer, and more confidence to put themselves out there and find some screen acting work!
(Please note that the course works out a little more expensive per hour than our other courses due to the cost and transport of equipment, and also time that Luke spends editing outside of class. This is all in the interests of delivering a quality learning experience, and the good news is that you will leave the course with screen footage that you can use for showreels etc!)
