Overview of New York Film Academy Australia’s 12-Week Acting for Film Workshop

Students in the New York Film Academy Australia’s 12-Week Acting for Film Workshop receive countless hours of hands-on instruction and production experience.

The acting for film workshop sees the students embedded with the Diploma students in their first term.

The following subjects will be covered:
  • Techniques & Scene Study 1
  • Voice & Speech
  • Safety on Set
The following Learning Outcomes will be achieved:

Techniques & Scene Study 1

In this subject, students will learn a variety of acting techniques and creative approaches to deliver truthful and original performances. Students will develop the ability to communicate emotions without self-consciousness, judgement or ego, using impulses, instincts and creative intuition to engage with scripts and maintain a character’s point-of-view for the duration of a performance.

In order to set and achieve artistic goals, students will apply these acting techniques in the performance of a collaboratively generated original work, as well as in monologues and scenes. The effectiveness of their creative choices will be critiqued and evaluated under the supervision of the trainers. The aim is to generate story material and characters that are personal and engaging, whilst learning to respond to feedback and ideas in a constructive manner.

On successful completion of the training and assessment of this unit you will have gained the skills and knowledge to:
  • Compare, discuss and evaluate elements and history of acting techniques through research, engagement and preparation.
  • Evaluate and practice preparation techniques and assess limitations.
  • Interpret and create convincing characters, complete with character hair styling and make-up, and costume.
  • Perform dialog, provoke response and reaction from fellow audience and actors, and deliver a truthful performance.
  • Understand the requirements and operational issues of working as a creative collaborative team.
  • Develop and deliver original work.
  • Develop improvisational skills.
  • Evaluate debate and discuss ideas of various acting techniques for their suitability for own creative practice, and assess student’s own performance, noting areas for development.
  • Analyse ideas for communication to others and texts for performance.
Voice & Speech

The course will begin with an individual vocal appraisal by the trainer and assessor as the students perform various vocal texts. This will be followed by multiple vocal awareness exercises before moving onto multiple vocal resonance techniques to maximise the chances of achieving the desired vocal goals and aspirations. Students will then demonstrate their own daily vocal practice before providing a post performance self-evaluation on the effectiveness of their own sustained practice.

Working with a speech specialist, students will develop speech skills through a variety of techniques before studying different Australian and American dialects to develop expertise in applying accents for the local and overseas market and identifying popular trends in the industry. Students will apply the speech techniques through a range of practical and theory based activities.

On successful completion of the training and assessment of this unit you will have gained the skills and knowledge to:
  • Identify and examine industry trends of voice, speech and accent for production.
  • Review own practical application of voice and speech techniques with experienced personnel.
  • Demonstrate a sound understanding of phonetics as speciality skill.
  • Seek and apply constructive feedback to develop own practice.
