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.
