In Acting Skills 4, students will develop skills for acting for camera. Working with a range of film and television scripts, students will continue to apply acting processes developed in previous years whilst responding to the particular demands of the medium. Classes will develop the student’s understanding of all stages of the process, from audition to shooting and provide the foundation for diversifying employability for a sustaining career. As with all year 3 subjects, a high level of preparation and autonomy is expected, with students exhibiting strong organisational skills and confident application of technical and artistic principles in self-directed work.
