Thanks to some really helpful student feedback, we have expanded our 6 week exploration of screen acting basics to 8 weeks, and this term we will be working with Kenny Gaughan - a man with very hands-on, anything-is-possible approach to film-making, who has already created an excellent platform for up-and-coming filmmakers in Galway by founding Little Cinema.

Kenny will blend elements of acting theory and movie analysis with practical exercises in getting in front of the camera, hitting marks, adapting performance for long, medium and close shots, and much more. Students will be encouraged to create their own scenes which they can then watch back and analyse, and the course will culminate in the filming of a scene that the student can use on their showreel. 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 time that Kenny 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!)

As always, this course is subject to our discounts for booking more than one course. 10% off full price for two courses, 15% for three, 20% for four!
