Our 3 month acting course is built around what our industry experts have found and proven to be the most successful methods.
The start of The Reel Scene part-time acting course focuses on improvisation and getting comfortable stepping outside of your comfort zones.
Getting comfortable in a creative acting environment brings out the best in yourself and your acting performances. Improvisation is a great acting warm up, and a great technique for creating your character on a more in-depth level, you also begin to really absorb information and take direction which is key in the acting world!
Taking direction is an important acting skill for every actor to know, and you may not realise it but you are constantly taking direction on set and in acting auditions. As an actor you must listen to direction and make yourself pliable, meaning becoming what is required of you as an actor.
On a film set it’s your job to become the character in your script and bring it to life, but an acting audition it is a test to see if you can apply direction. It is also an indicator to the director and casting director of how well you listen and absorb what you’re being told to do.
As you progress through The Reel Scene part-time acting course your coaches are constantly tracking your acting progress so they are able to understand what your acting needs may be.
During the acting course, we introduce other acting methods and techniques that are used today across the best full-time and part-time drama schools in London and Los Angeles.
For example, we introduce acting methods like the Meisner technique and Stanislavsky techniques, as well as acting methods like script analysis, script work, cold readings and self-tapes.
Script analysis teaches you to break down a script and make it your own, this is key to delivering a believable acting performance and should never be overlooked. Every great actor studies each script they are handed in order to understand the character, develop backstories and so on.
Having the advantage of being able to rehearse cold readings as an actor will put you at a big advantage amongst untrained actors and will dramatically help you develop as a performer.
Cold reading is an audition process where you are given your audition script the moment you arrive at the audition and then given a time frame to memorise and perform it. A lot of actors struggle with this but in our intensive acting course, we make sure that you go into every audition prepared for whatever is thrown at you.
We also look at acting techniques such as the Meisner technique, a powerful tool you can add to your acting toolkit, and a way to connect to your acting partner when performing a scene.
Something that is becoming more popular in the area of auditioning is self-tapes. Self-taping is recording your audition in your home or wherever you may be and sending it through to the director. Within the time frame given. This is great news for actors as it can open up opportunities for overseas productions that could skyrocket your acting career.
Towards the end of the part-time acting course, you prepare a final acting performance piece to be performed in front of Alex Fidelski, Director of The Reel Scene - and an acting agent. This is an experience very few London acting courses offer and having a chance to audition for an agent is an opportunity every budding actor wants.
