Develop authentic on-camera presence in this Meisner-based Screen Acting summer workshop with a film director who will boost your confidence, whilst gaining fresh showreel material. Small group of 6-8 students max.
Becky Sharpe is a film director offering a Summer Screen Acting Intensive One Week Workshop - for five days from Monday 19th August to Friday 23rd August from 10.30am to 5pm to work with a small group of actors developing their on-camera presence.
The classes run like mini workshops for specific scenes from films, including Becky's latest film script and a scene of your choosing. You will develop your ability to BE IN THE MOMENT, practice for screen auditions, improve your skills in understanding and accepting direction in live filming scenarios, develop your scene analysis capabilities; all the while connecting with your fellow actors, being alive and spontaneous on-screen throughout the week as we use the Meisner Technique in our scene work.
This summer workshop is open to students working with Becky already, as well as newcomers to Screen Acting. Whatever your experience level, this workshop will build on your existing skills and give you new scenes to add to your reel. Sessions will be filmed for learning purposes in the first half of the week, so that you can evaluate your own progress and ability to be in the moment. Later in the week, you will work intensively on-camera, and at the end of the course, you will receive material that you may use for your showreel: a filmed monologue, a filmed dualogue, and a scene that you have worked on in-depth with another actor filmed with props, broadcast quality sound, and edited for you in matching close-ups. You will receive a monologue, a dualogue and an in depth scene for your showreel, or to keep and share as you choose.
Day by day, you will develop your authenticity in performance, self-awareness, truthfulness, and moment by moment connection. Your ability to work on a deeper level will free you to connect and be in the moment with your fellow actor, to be alive and spontaneous whilst staying true to the story of the script.
The Summer Screen Acting Intensive One Week Workshop with Becky is informal and fun, covering different topics, including the important aspects of how to be authentic and truthful for camera acting, and we will apply the teaching to specific scenes and character roles.
Whether you are a newcomer to acting, or an experienced professional actor,
this workshop is an opportunity to:
• Allow your authenticity to show on-screen
• Develop self-awareness in your acting
• Learn how to develop character for TV and Film
• Create fresh material for your showreel

Some Recent Reviews:
"Becky Sharpe - you're an absolute JOY to work with. I feel like in such a short time of knowing you you've been stamping out my life-long bad behaviours (like putting myself down or being negative) and building my acting confidence and technique with each session. You're the "stage mom" I never had. So basically... thank you!!"
Yulia Kovnat - Actress
"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
“A lovely screen acting class with Becky. The regular acting training helps me remove the corporate mask I have worn in the past during my corporate career. In some professions, we suppress our emotions and thus wear a mask. However, acting is not like any other profession, the beautiful art that we love. I have found that by training regularly in Becky’s sessions, it helps me become emotionally naked and vulnerable. One of the strong attributes of training with Becky is her style of teaching helps you relax, be in the moment and access your emotions. Looking forward to continuing the journey and seeing some further great work in class.”
Ravi Summan - Actor
"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."
