This program offers students the opportunity to learn new skills, through our hands-on, industry specific, short workshops. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of attendance.
The pace of this one-week workshop is demanding and students should be prepared to live, eat and breathe acting
for film for the entire duration of the course. Students should also be prepared to work in non-traditional acting
classes emphasizing the construction and control of character given the unique pressures of a film or television
shoot. Video cameras may be used during particular classes.
The basis of the 1-Week Acting for Film Workshop, along with all NYFA Programs, is learning by doing. The New York
Film Academy Australia promotes a hands-on, practical, experiential approach. The workshop delivers a tremendous
amount of content in a short time and should be viewed as a total immersion acting experience. Students who wish to
continue their studies have the opportunity to apply credit towards and transfer to a longer program at any point.
The intensive 1-Week Acting for Film Workshop was designed to serve the needs of different types of students. For
students contemplating a longer-term education in acting for film, it is an excellent introduction. This one-week
acting workshop gives students an understanding of the rigorous requirements of the film actor. Many of our one-week
students are "bitten by the acting bug" during this workshop; they realize that one week will not fulfill their desire
to learn all they can about the craft of acting and therefore return to complete a longer course of study.
All students enrolling in the intensive 1-Week Acting for Film Workshop should be aware that this is an introductory
course. The limitations of a one-week course should be apparent, given that many people spend years studying and
perfecting the craft of acting.
