During TYCs Acting for Film and TV (Techniques) Program participants (10yrs – 17yrs) will apply their knowledge and understanding of acting for film and television in a creative and supportive environment. Students participating in TYCs Acting for Film and TV (Techniques) may already be studying drama and/or film at school or have previously done so, while some students may be completely new to the film world!
TYC provides students to gain invaluable tools for understanding the subtle mannerisms that are critical for on-camera work. Learn to read, prepare and develop screen presence and acting skills for rehearsing and performing scenes to camera with professional input, direction and feedback. Students get the opportunity to practice the techniques and skills they have gained in class with exercises that are shot and reviewed.
In doing so students will become confident in front of the camera while rehearsing scenes from film and TV and sharpening their acting skills. Learn how much can be said in just a look, how to break down a scene quickly as well as some fundamental acting techniques whilst discovering the difference between film and stage. Learn from an industry professional as you film your work, watch it back and analyse your performance.
As a Youth Theatre Organisation we are also student-driven, where the creative process is driven by participants ideas and opinions, and crafted directorially by our experienced workshop practitoners.
As students work towards developing their acting for film and television techniques they will continue to grow their acting resume and build on their performance making skills. Participants will also participate in specific film and television master-classes throughout the workshop program. Check out our info sheet here for more info.
