School of Acting for the Screen

The School of Acting for the Screen is for new and seasoned actors who are passionate about not only learning the principles and approaches behind successful acting, but also actively applying those techniques by moving from the classroom to the film set. Simply put, we believe the most effective way to learn is through hands-on experience. In addition to the desire to act, we are looking for talented artists who are passionate about impacting the industry for God's glory, The School of Acting for the Screen will equip students with the skills they need to become successful actors and have a significant influence in the film industry.

The school provides intensive training in the following topics:

Introduction to the craft of acting: from Stanislavski’s System and Suzuki’s Method to Meisner’s approach, students will explore the most effective ways an actor can “live” truthfully under imaginary circumstances.

Script Analysis: understanding how scripts are created and characters structured within a film script or scene study; students will learn to analyze scripts for the purpose of scene preparation and character development.

Auditioning: preparing actors for the audition environment by giving a realistic idea of what is required in an audition.

Film history and analysis: giving the students a broader base of knowledge about the rich history of the cinema and providing the tools to analyze influential film performances and apply what is learned to their own craft.

What to Expect

Actors have an opportunity to have leading and supporting roles in the short films produced by the writers and filmmakers in the School of Film, giving them a practical application of all that is learned in class. Therefore students will walk out of the school with several short films which may be used in their demo reel.
