Anyone can drive a car from point A to point B. Just like any actor can stand up and deliver a scene. However, it is those drivers who know the ins and outs of the engine, and who understand the mechanics of the car that will have a more thrilling ride. We like to think of our Acting Technique course as a pit-stop; a place where you, as an aspiring actor, can get to know your acting engine before you 'get it on the road'.
In this 6-week course, Richard Cornally will arm you with the essential tools needed to deliver a truthful and thrilling performance; everything from understanding the anatomy of a scene to motivational and characterisation techniques. Each week, you will work with scene partners - who might be new or returning students from previous terms - putting all of your acquired knowledge to practice, before eventually getting up in front of the camera in the last week of the course.
