ACTING FOR CAMERA

 

If you want to learn about acting on TV or in films, these classes are for you. You will have opportunity to learn how to give a performance on camera. See yourself on the screen, perform with actual TV scripts and discover whether you could be the next big thing.

 

Acting for camera is a completely different skill to acting on stage and is something our students love to explore. We encourage all students to take on the challenge of bringing characters to life in an understated and naturalistic way, this is why we bring this part of the class in to our weekend classes so teach students how to act on stage and then switch that off and act for screen.

 

This part of the class also covers things you will need to know about the world of television, including casting technique, set disciplines and performance for camera. 

 

Students learn to develop a truthful, emotional connection to character that can then be captured through the camera lens to create realistic and natural performances. 

Film & Television

Film & Television is an included in our Musical Theatre classes (weekends only)

 

Leading off our Majestic Talent (our agency) it is super important to us that our students experience something  that is industry-led, taught by professional creatives and filmmakers covering the craft of screen acting, film and television and the production side. At MAPA we use industry-standard equipment in a super fun and practical environment. Our students are always learning and using their creativity to tell amazing stories to the us and you.

 

The Film & Television experience at MAPA gives children and young people an excellent introduction to development, pre-production and production techniques by creating, filming, and screening short films of their own. Within this students take on roles behind the camera and in front, all students given individual roles whilst working in their very own production company teams which mirror how professional film sets are run!

This section of the class develops student’s filmmaking abilities should they wish to choose this as a chosen career path, but most importantly, students can use these skills in life such as: teamwork, communication and problem solving.

 

 

Within the part of the class, students are encouraged to explore a variety of roles including: writing, producing, directing, operating the camera, recording sound, designing costumes and applying make-up and not to forget acting in front of the camera. By providing these opportunities our students get to experience roles they didn’t even know existed, inspiring new interests and sometimes even dream jobs!
