Screen Acting Workshop

The Chalfonts Community College Drama department invited students from across the college to participate in an ‘Introduction to Screen Acting Workshop’ run by Middleweek Newton Academy of Film & Theatre. They are one of London’s leading acting agencies for young, raw talent.

Students learned:

  • how to perform for the camera
  • about the different skills required, acting for a camera, in contrast to theatre acting
  • some of the technical terminology
  • how to learn a scene
  • about breaking a scene down into shots
  • about filming close-ups
  • about acting as an extra in the background

It was a fantastic three hours for our Years 8,9,10 & 12 students and we are looking forward to them returning next year for more! MN Academy runs workshops for 11 to 18 year olds on Saturdays at Windsor Girls School from 2pm to 5pm. On the 15th September, there will be a free Open Day. If you are interested in finding out more please see Mrs Adams.
