About The Course.

Ireland’s most popular Screen Acting Part Time course is open to all ages over 18 and all levels of experience. Year on year it’s popularity increases due to the success of our graduates securing work on major Film and TV productions. This is our ultimate aim, to give you the tools to find and secure work within the industry.

The Course is designed for those actors either starting out in the Film & TV Industry who are looking to get a better understanding of both the theoretical and practical elements of screen acting and for those with some experience but are looking to take their craft to the next level.  Participants also include actors with lots of stage experience looking to understand the nuances of screen acting and experienced actors looking to up-skill.

Run over 2 consecutive nights a week for 6 months, this intensive part-time course will delve into a variety of areas to teach actors the essential tools of screen acting and the chance to explore their full potential. The 2 nights are decided following a successful interview and consultation with the applicant.
Some of the topics covered include:

Using similar methods that form the basis of the main Programme for Screen Acting, participants will learn the basics of working with the camera and how to own their environment. Sessions with experienced professionals,  access to shooting and screening facilities, coupled with practical hands-on training all contribute to pushing the actor to maximise their potential.

Tutors on the course include regular tutors from the Full Time Programme plus experienced guests from the Film & TV industry.

The course culminates with a professionally filmed Showcase scene that also gets distributed to every Agent and Casting Director in the country which increases your chances of landing an Agent or being called for an Audition.

This course is a fully immersive and holistic experience and participants may also avail of the Bow Street facilities during their time on the course which includes Rehearsal Studios, Media Room, Canteen and Common Room.
