There are now quite a few full-time acting courses avaliable in Sydney, the vast majority being theatre-based training. At the Screen Actors Workshop we run a very comprehensive and successful 20 Week Full-Time Intensive Showreel Course, which over 420 hours of face-to-face tuition, trains aspiring actors to a fully professional level. But how can we do this in only five months? Quite simply, by concentrating on the cutting-edge screen performance techniques used by working actors on a day-to-day basis; thereby not overloading the course with drama, theatre training or useless mumbo jumbo. Students who have completed the course have joined the lucky 2% of working actors on television, film and emerging new media. As much as we specialise in training for the screen only, it’s worthwhile for any aspiring actor to gain comprehensive training for the theatre as well. If you can act on-camera and on-stage then you are more likely to maintain a steady flow of work when one area dries up for a while.
