Develop authentic on-camera presence in this workshop with a film director who will boost your confidence, whilst gaining fresh showreel material. Small groups of 8-10 students max. and £35 per three hour workshop
Becky Sharpe is a film director offering a Screen Acting Foundation on Saturdays.
The Foundation in Screen Acting Workshop is ideal to gain confidence on-camera and improve audition ability. Becky’s Screen Acting workshops will build on your existing skills, boost your confidence and give you something fresh to add to your showreel.
Classes run like mini workshops for specific scenes from films, including Becky's latest film script. The workshops involve script preparation, character breakdown, discussion, rehearsals and on-camera practice. You will be given filmed sequences to keep for your showreel.
Sessions are informal and fun, covering different topics, including all the important aspects of camera acting. You will improve your audition technique and cold-reading skills, advance your self-tape ability, gain insight into yourself, applying the teaching to specific scenes and character roles.
You will develop your skills in understanding and accepting direction in live filming scenarios as well as learning to self-direct to prepare for the film set. You will progress from monologue work to dualogue scenes, and build awareness of camera-specific screen presence that can be very impactful (like eyeline work, connection and motivation).
Whether you are a newcomer to acting, or an experienced professional actor, these workshops are an opportunity to:
• Build your confidence in front of the camera
• Allow your authenticity to show on-screen
• Become more self-aware
• Learn how to develop character for TV and Film
• Create fresh material for your showreel
• Improve your Audition Technique
• Work with a director who will energise you
• Develop your technical abilities for camera
• Learn how to Prepare Text
The Screen Acting Workshops with Becky are £35 per workshop for a three hour session or £120 for four sessions.

Some Recent Reviews:
"I had an absolutely fab time working with Becky during her course of screen acting workshops. Such a fab director who understands the actors needs - coming from a theatre background I found this incredibly helpful when working in front of the camera. I also had a breakthrough in the last session which felt wonderful! Thank you Becky for all of your help x"
Ciara Waterfield - Actress
"Becky delivers great sessions that allow you to try new things and feel comfortable in doing so. You get lots of time in front of the camera and just as much time to watch yourself back and observe your work. Becky puts everyone at ease and you always leave having learnt something valuable to go away and think about and work on."
Daniel Woodger - Actor
"Becky is an excellent holistic teacher. Whilst the main focus of the course is screen acting she also encourages students to look after themselves and suggests materials to help them. Her group is supportive and I my confidence has grown as my course has progressed. I would recommend Becky's classes to anyone"
Claudette Burke - Actress
"I would definitely recommend this course if anyone is looking to make a massive improvement in their screen acting performance. Becky shows you how to be natural whilst having thoughts running through your head that will help serve the script without even needing to push it. Also you will get to keep the footage so what is there not to love."
