The Advanced Class is also useful for any established actor interested in brushing up or refining their technique with Robert Mammone.

The journey does not end, but begins with Screen Acting Advanced. Many of our short course graduates continue on with their journey by developing other skills such as American Accent and Presenting on Camera. Students are also encouraged to work towards paving their professional screen acting career through the One-Year Part-Time The Showreel Course and The 10065NAT Diploma of Screen Acting.

The Advanced Series consists of practical 6 week short courses created to provide actors with the technical skills enabling them to work more efficiently and effectively, adding to, and enhancing their creative toolkit and driving their craft to that next level.

Students have the flexibility of completing each course consecutively or individually.

The Advanced Series helps actors refine their craft, remain competitive in the industry, and enhance their overall performance in front of the camera.

Be empowered to take on more challenging roles and broaden your range. Sharpen your skills, gain knowledge and acquire experience that sets you apart from your peers and increase your chances of securing your next acting job.

The growth and experience I’ve gained from both intensive practical and theoretical study at Screenwise has in my opinion best prepared and equipped my journey to become a professional actor.  Each tutor I’ve worked with was always knowledgeable with curricular subjects and prepared to answer any industry questions. The safe classroom environments also encouraged me…

The Technical Craft

Once you’ve learnt the foundations, and built up your confidence with scene work, you’ll want to start getting a sense of how the work on set runs. With The Advanced Series courses you’ll be introduced to the technical craft of screen acting.

Screen acting is as much a technical craft as a creative one. The Advanced Series is designed to start to give the awareness and knowledge you need to be aware of to work as a screen actor. Beyond the performance demands of screen acting, a screen actor needs to have an awareness of the technical aspect of performance, from hitting marks and working within the frame to nailing your eyelines. Taught by industry-leading film and television director The Advanced Series courses will give you the technical tools you need to be able to follow direction on set.

Once you’ve completed the advanced course your journey is just beginning. Move on to the part-time Screenwise Showreel Course and kick-start your career with professionally shot showreel scenes and an introduction to navigating the business side of the industry. Or immerse yourself in the two-year full-time Advanced Diploma of Screen Acting to set yourself up with everything you need to begin a successful career as a screen actor.

Our recognised and renowned tutors work with you in a class environment as well as one on one to ensure you are receiving the guidance and feedback required when studying at Screenwise.
