Acting for Camera/Film Making Course-Saturdays

Dublin Central School of Acting

At DCSA, students learn from Industry Professionals- Led by Casting Director Gillian Reynolds www.gillianreynoldscasting.com plus Guest Film Directors-we explore the difference between stage and film acting. It is suitable for people who want to work as an Actor in Film or Television or TV Commercials.It is also suitable for people who want to explore the possibility of Film making.

Many movie Directors and Actors began making short films before going to film or drama school. Many learnt creatively without ever going to film or drama school!!!!

 If you want to be a Film director or actor – you need to know how to direct actors, and as an actor you need to know what to expect from a director. You have to learn how to work with each other – to communicate with each other and to understand their respective roles, so that the film is the best it can be – with both parties pulling together. The day is divided between instruction, followed immediately by practicals – so all that is learnt in theory is immediately put into practice. We switch constantly from theory to “on set” demonstrations.
