Dublin Central School of Acting

The Film & T.V. Acting for Camera course for Newcomers is aimed at those who are new to the Industry with little or no Acting experience-especially in Film. It is also ideal for anyone who wants to know and explore Film and TV acting – which is very different from stage Acting.

The course covers:

  • How to create a character and back-story
  • How to break a script down
  • Acting for camera – camera angles, eye lines, and framing
  • Improvisation
  • Voice and movement
  • Casting for TV Commercials/Short Films and how you source auditions
  • Audition and Interview technique
  • The Art of Self-taping,
  • Write and make your own short in a day, using theory learned from class
  • How to market yourself within the Industry with no Agent
  • Compiling a C.V.
  • How Actors get an Agent
  • Professional  Headshot
  • Professional Showreel

Ever thought you could have a professional Show reel, professional Headshots, and a C.V. by the end of a 10-week Course? Here are some samples of our recent graduates- by the way- we have a variety of ages on the course-as we work as a drama troop!


They were newcomers, the photo at the start of their showreel was their headshot so you can get a  clear idea as to what your headshot and showreel would look like.You can also see our latest student showreel at The Dublin Central School of Acting Facebook page.

We have our photographer take your Headshot, and on the final day of the course our professional crew will come to film your monologue – which we will have sourced for you during the course. It will be edited and sent to you; for you to promote yourself to casting directors, agents and directors.

This course is run by Gillian Reynolds Casting, and will feature a guest Tutor from the world of Film and TV production.

A deposit of €250 is required to secure a place and full payment should be made before the commencement of the course. A refund can be given provided we have two weeks notice before the course starts.

If you have difficulty and want a payment plan please contact us and we work something out!
