Take a deep dive into short film production in this 5 session course. You’ll have the opportunity to express your creativity through film whether you’d like to be an onscreen actor, Director, Director of Photography, Editor or any other film production role you’d like to explore. We’ll be creating a short film from conception through to the final editing stage. Full attendance throughout production is a must to make this film come to reality. We have the opportunity to explore any genre within this short film allowing us to take everyone's ideas on board. We have access to top end video production equipment and a full studio space to work in. Please feel free to bring any material you’ve made before or have had an idea of in the past to our first film conception session.

Autumn Half Term 2

Advanced Acting Technique with Charlie Cornforth from Crumbling Rocks Theatre Company

Monday 30th October - 27th November

7:00pm - 8:30pm

The Advanced Acting Technique Workshop series will encourage participants to develop their acting toolkit. 

Workshops will start with effective well-being practices such as exploring detailed warm-up, cooldown and repair-focused techniques informed by yoga and qigong. Following this, the workshops will explore postmodern acting through travelling, sightlines, energy patterns, physicality, voice and storytelling.  

Informed by Charlie’s fourteen years spent training in theatre and performance, the workshops shall draw on knowledge from various sources including, but not limited to, Stanislavski, Brecht, Grotowski, Gecko Theatre, Frantic Assembly and Lost Dog.
