Interesting in Film and Television? Ever wondered if you have what it takes to make it onto Shorty, or just wanting to have a crack at performing for television?

This July, Holly Shanahan (Power Rangers, Underbelly, Outrageous Fortune, Second Hand Wedding) is bringing her popular film and television workshops to Palmerston North for the first time, in conjunction with Centrepoint Theatre.

Holly has over a decade of experience as an actor, producer, agent, director and teacher. Working as an agent for young people in both New Zealand and Australia, Holly has taught a wide range of classes to a vast spectrum of ages in screen performance. With over ten years experience as a professional actress across stage and screen, Holly’s workshops are a wealth of knowledge for young people interesting in the performing arts, or just wanting to boost confidence and have a go at something different.

What do we do, in a nutshell!
• Firstly, we get students on camera! We improvise and look at how we can be natural with a camera staring us in the face. This can be the hardest part for all of us (even Holly!).
• Discuss how the casting process for film and teleivison works. Holly will run you through what to expect when auditioning for screen work, answer questions and have students run through this sometimes nerve wracking process to get a feel for it.
• Perform and reflect on prepared film scripts with direction and reflection.
• End the day with exercises around what it’s like being ‘on set’

Classes are limited and divided into specific age groups. We cater to the experience of the group and classes are limited to a maximum of 14. All levels of experience are welcome, from beginners to students with broad performance experience.
