WHY STUDY AT BOW STREET?

1. WHO ARE THE TEACHERS?

One of the main advantages of studying at Bow Street is that our tutors are all actively working at the highest levels of the Film & TV Industry today. These experts bring vast experience and tell it like it really is sharing knowledge of current practices and methods used on Film & TV sets today.

Many other guests have included Danny DeVito, Fiona Shaw, Richard Deyfuss, Margery Simkin, Richard E. Grant, Domhnall Gleeson and Aku Louhimies. Bow Street also has the added advantage of having one of Ireland’s top Casting Directors attached to its courses.
