Screens, new screen acting courses designed to give actors important techniques for on-screen impact, kicks off on January 10, at the Exeter Phoenix.
The courses, which are facilitated by stalwarts of the performance scene, Josephine Larson and Beinda Harris-Reid (her what snored on Big Brother), are for “all ages, backgrounds and abilities designed to demonstrate the difference between stage and film acting and introduce you to the skills required to give convincing on camera performances”.
The programme is in the form of a series of workshops, which go through the various modes of film acting techniques.
Here’s some blurb: “Acting for screen, although using many of the skills necessary to deliver a theatrical performance, is essentially a different discipline to master; one has to act as if the first ‘take’ is an experience that is being visited for the first time; each ‘take’ needs to envelop you wholly as if it is an occurrence that you have never experienced before; each ‘take’ needs to have a fresh and vital energy.”
There are two sets of four workshops, the first for those who want to find out what it takes to be a films star, and the second entitled Film Acting – Challenges for Stage Actors.
The dates of the workshops are: Saturday, January 10; Sunday, January 18; Saturday, January 24 and Saturday, January 31. For times and details of how to book, go to the Screens website.
