Beginner Acting Course – Part 2

Term Class Scene Study - 8 weeks

Our Part 2 Beginner Acting course is designed to be completed as many times as is needed until you are ready to move into the more demanding level of training – The Actors Workshop Technique.

Building on the skills learnt in the Beginner Acting Course-Part 1, our Beginner Acting Course Part 2 will dive even further into Script analysis to enhance your skills and tools. You will be challenged with more complex scenes, perform opposite a professional actor, as well as film more scenes in the studio. In the final week, all the work culminates in a screen-test workshop with a casting director from Nick Hamon Casting. 

At the completion of the course, every student is given feedback regarding which course they are best suited to continue their training in.
The School Directors along with the class teacher view the footage from the final class and advise either further study in the Beginners Part 2 Course or to move on to the Actors Workshop Technique.

Course Components:

  • Brave Studios professional warm-up technique.
  • Review of techniques learnt in Part 1 Beginners Course Acting Course.
  • Scenes requiring greater skill and commitment.
  • Performing scenes with a professional Actor.
  • Final Week Screen-test with an Australian Casting Director.
  • Skill-level assessment upon full completion of the course ONLY if continuing in the current level
  • All footage uploaded to Vimeo for self-critiquing in own time.

In order for our beginner acting students to move into the Actors Workshop-Technique, applicants must do the following;

  • Attend all course days
  • Must show they have a clear understanding of all the techniques covered in the Beginners Acting Courses Parts 1 & 2.

After the final acting class, teachers and School Directors will review your work in order to make an informed decision where you are placed to continue your training.

In this Scene Study Beginner’s Acting Course, you will work opposite a professional actor in Week 4, and complete a screen-test with a casting director from Nick Hamon Casting in your final week.

If you’d like to get a taste of what this course involves without committing straight away to 8-weeks, you can join us for one of our 3-hour Introduction to Acting Workshops held regularly at Brave Studios.

Applicants must have completed our Beginners Acting Course Part 1 – Foundation.
