Courses

SDS is excited to present a range flexible and exciting acting short courses, intensives and masterclasses available to aspiring and experienced adult actors.
Our core offering at SDS are our term-based short courses which typically run in six week terms throughout the year. To compliment these Short Courses, we have developed a TVC Casting Intensive run by casting agent and SDS Director Toni Higginbotham to give students more specific direction and preparation for commercial castings. Our Masterclass series, led by top directors currently working in Australian film and television, is the cherry on top of the SDS pie and gives students invaluable insight into the workings of the screen industry.
