This is an amazing opportunity for you to get yourself started in your professional acting career. Often actors are told that they don't have enough experience to get the job, yet they can't get 'experience on screen' because they aren't getting any work. It's the chicken and egg scenario. How can you build up your show-reel faster. Yes you do get that break sometimes, but this course helps you get started faster.
We teach you how to be a better actor on screen, film you and show you what worked and where you went wrong, help you deepen and enrich your performance and give you opportunities to film on location and build your portfolio of work.
A Psychological Approach - We believe that acting on screen is about subtlety and realism. Psychology is about studying natural human behaviour and I apply that understanding to evaluate and alter the actor's reactions to create a true performance on screen. It's about revealing your true self and delivering an organic realistic reaction to the given circumstance. The SAFA psychological approach coupled with our view on sense memory and emotional recall gives the actor the ability to recreate powerful true emotions that are already winning our actors British Arrow and BAFTA awards. Our teachings are strategical and methodical, giving you the confidence to be consistent on screen.
Realistic Feedback - you don’t learn unless you know what you’re doing wrong. Here we give you feedback throughout your training what’s going well and what you need to work on. Here it’s all about ‘keeping it real’ being as natural on screen as you are off screen. If I see you ‘acting’, you’re not doing it right and I’ll tell you. By getting direct constructive feedback that's measurable you continue to develop and get better all the time.
Script Analysis – Although this class focuses on emotional recall there will be development of script analysis during this class as we believe that you must first understand the text and the content of the script in order to fully connect and understand how you will then feel in that given circumstance. safa will teach you how to analyse the script and understand the subtext and beyond.
Loads of screen time - You're filmed regularly in class and on location. This gives you valuable experience on screen and gives you an understanding of what will be asked of you onset. You'll learn techniques, do's and don'ts and tips that make you more confident on screen. Arrive on set to your first day of filming and have the confidence in knowing that what you're doing is right.
