Introduction to Screen Acting

  • Workshop

In association with Bow Street Academy, this online Zoom event comprises six classes where participants will explore the art of screen acting.

Using many of the techniques taught in Bow Street’s full-time adult courses, participants will experience acting through fun activities. Topics covered include:

  • Creating characters
  • Understanding the script
  • Owning your environment
  • Using the camera to your advantage. 

Students will come away from this introduction with a strong understanding of online audition techniques and self-taping – both hugely important in acting right now due to Covid-19.

They will also gain an understanding of the fundamental differences between screen acting and theatre acting, and how one must adjust their performance according to the medium. 

The workshops will take place from 5-7 pm on Thursdays from May 6th. On June 12th, to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, there will also be a short performance presented by participants.
