What our students say

M. Rodriguez

This course was right up my street and allowed me to work at my own pace which helped me take my time to properly grasp the teachings.

I especially enjoyed the script work, subtext exercises and inner monologue work, I found those really useful and know they will help me in the future. 

The teaching within the videos was really simple to follow and the lessons were done in a way that meant I could commit the information to memory with ease which meant I could remember theory well and put it into practice with the assignments. 

I definitely feel I have a good understanding now of different acting systems that I didn’t really understand before and a more thorough understanding of framing, working with a crew and expectations on set.


Thanks so much to this course, it’s also given me a huge confidence boost for future acting roles and work.



This is a very detailed course, has lots of information, is easy to follow and well spaced out.

By setting my own time to study, I was able to complete it in 4 months doing a couple of hours a week.

The acting exercises and  script studies gave me something to aim for and a way to put my theory into practice.

I found the tutors very supportive  and knowledgable , helping me through any difficulties I had experienced.

Going forward I now have a deeper understanding of what I am doing , which has given more confidence about the future.


W. Turner

Gave me more confidence to go back into the industry after a break.


It refreshed my memory and taught me new ways of approaching characters and scenes. I appreciated being able to have a tutor checking in on my progress  and their guidance.


V. Hamblin

Booked a lot more work after taking this course, as I felt more relaxed and less intimidated by camera work. Felt happier with more grounding and new understanding. Time well spent for me. Thank you


S. Davern

I have always been interested in films and wanted to pursue a possible career in the industry but like many of us ‘life’ got in the way. Due to the pandemic my life changed dramatically and I took the opportunity to try and follow my interests. I found this course ticked all the boxes, I could take part at my own pace, had the back up of professional tutors and thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience. The knowledge that I now have has given me the confidence to look further at any potential avenues into the industry.
