Is this the course for me?

This course is ideal for professional actors or returning actors who have stage experience. This course will enable actors to confidently translate their stagecraft onto screen. It will also benefit actors who have gained previous experience in acting for screen or those who've been away from screen for a while, as a refresher course.

All about the course

Building on your existing knowledge of your craft, you'll work with screen acting exercises to provide a basis for successful screen performance. Attendees will come away with a reliable self-taping process, gaining the confidence to do self-tapes independently.

Taught by industry professionals, the course explores how you can adapt your stagecraft for screen. All practitioners bring the most relevant industry practice and requirements to the course.

Note that the course is not accredited or validated by a higher education institution. Once you've completed the course, you will receive a LAMDA short course certificate.

What will I learn?

  • Learn how to record a self-tape effectively.

  • Work with multiple scripts. 

  • Confidence building in solo prep for the screen actor, including practical exercises and screen craft techniques.
