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, together with NYFA's Diploma Students. 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 and that classes may be combined with NYFA's Diploma students. The limitations of a one-week course should be apparent, given that many people spend years studying and perfecting the craft of acting.
