Next course starts Monday 19th September.

An intensive 10 week course for beginners and those with a little screen/theatre experience. It has been designed to focus on learning all the skills required for acting for television and film in NZ. Auckland is a screen-based city, therefore most auditions are on camera, so it is important to understand the NZ protocol of auditioning and casting requirements.

The course includes: improvisation and psychodrama on camera, confidence building, script analysis, physical awareness, point of view, listening and reacting, processing and digesting, timing, acting genres, TVC audition technique, the "X" factor, how to win jobs, charting the "action" in a scene, characterisation, use of props, scene structure, physical and emotional energy, camera/shot awareness location shooting in two scenes.

Some students have done Level 1 as a confidence building and emotional expression exercise. Some have continued on to become excellent dedicated screen actors in New Zealand, London and America, in mainstream TV.

Actors with extensive theatre-based training (including three year courses) have also benefited from the unique, dynamic approach in Level 1. This is an in-depth study of the individual's technical technique for the camera and also emotional awareness, realness and contact.

Location shooting helps the student learn quickly from the process of performance outside the classroom and the amount of focus and commitment needed.

The course is one night a week for ten weeks, plus rehearsal and shooting outside class.

A DVD copy of all of the student's work on the course is obtainable when ordered at the end of the course. It is not a show reel, it is a follow-through of the individual's work from the introduction on camera, to the last location scene.

Scenes shot and edited on Level 1 are only advised to be used as show reel scenes if they are of exceptional quality. This is a working, training block. Whatever your objective, Level 1 is a superb, exciting and growth-full experience.
