June 21, 2012, 6:08 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Screenwise, the Sydney TV & Film Acting School that boasts Spartacus Blood and Sand star Andy Whitfield and Legend Of The Seeker star Tabrett Bethell amongst it's alumni, announces several upcoming short courses from Beginners through to Advanced acting levels.
One of their most popular short courses is the Screen Acting for Beginners which is tutored by experienced actor Philip Holder. This six week acting course, which commences on 5th of July 2012, covers Screen Acting Basics including improvisation, interpretation and scene analysis.
Should students wish to continue with their acting studies, there is a six week Screen Acting Intermediate course tutored by Screen and Stage Actor, Alan Flower. Like Screen Acting for Beginners, this six week course runs one class per week over six weeks and covers 'The Unique You' - Reacting - Not acting, with focus on listening as the key. The Australian film and television industry on the whole is looking for unique personalities who can set the screen alight. This intermediate acting course focuses on methods that will help actors present in auditions and on set in a relaxed, focused, and charismatic way.
There are also two six week Screen Acting Advanced workshops commencing in July: The Screen Test Audition Workshop, tutored by Actress and Author, Rhondda Findleton (Blood Brothers, Crownies, East West 101), commences on 18th of July 2012. Always getting a call back, but never getting the role? So close and yet so far? The Screen Test Audition Workshop is for those actors who need to perfect their audition technique.
Screen Acting Advanced with Director Dan Krige (West, Redd Inc) commences on 2nd of July 2012. Dan will give students an opportunity to explore monologue and scene work together with the technical requirements for acting on screen.
For young adults from 12 to 16 years, Screenwise offers a three day School Holiday Presenter's Workshop tutored by actor/presenter, Di Smith (The Great Outdoors) which commences on 3rd of July 2012. In this Presenting Workshop, teens will explore confidence, spontaneity and personality on camera. They will learn to write and produce their own material and perform on camera and record their work to DVD.
Screenwise also offers young adult actors, from 12 to 16 years, the Screenteens Workshop on Saturday mornings from 9.30am to 11.30am during school terms. Past Screenteen students, like Ashleigh Cummings (Puberty Blues, Tomorrow When The World began), have auditioned and appeared in some of Australia's leading film and TV series such as Home and Away, All Saints, The December Boys, H2O and Blue Water High. Thanks to referrals from Screenwise, many of the students are now represented by some of Sydney's top Acting Agencies.
In industry related news, former Screenwise student Ashleigh Cummings' star is quickly on the rise in the local and international Film and TV Industry. Ashleigh who starred in the feature film Tomorrow When The World Began and the ABC's Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, is now the star of the much anticipated television series, Puberty Blues.
