F ollowing the huge success of its Screenwriting and Cinematography courses, the Mindscreen Institute is now launching its first Acting Foundation Course, January 17 to March 16, 2011. This two month course is suited to students with a strong interest and some experience in the performing arts as well as returning students or professional practitioners who would like to refresh their learning and knowledge in a pressure-free environment.

During the course students will begin to understand the nature and language of actor training and the effect will be to gain confidence, and lose any nervousness about acting and being an actor. Along with modern training, we will also introduce the student in the traditional skills of classical language, with reference to the voice.

The programme will begin with four weeks of intensive training, during which students will attend daily technical classes in voice, movement, speech, acting and improvisation, as well as singing, dance and the martial arts. The second month will involve the casting and rehearsing of a piece of dramatic text and will culminate in a stage production, in which students will perform to invited members of film and theatre industry. The training is vocational and practical and will be taught by a team of extremely distinguished and respected theatre and film professionals, all of whom, as well as being experts in their fields, enjoy successful careers as actors and directors.
