Acting for Film and Television workshop comes to Mullingar
Aspiring actors in the Mullingar area who dream of acting on the big screen have a chance to gain invaluable practical experience on the annual Acting for Film and Television workshops being held at the Mullingar Park Hotel on Saturday February 5 and Sunday February 6.
It’s possible that you’ve seen great performances on film or television, and thought to yourself, “I could do that!” Perhaps you have some experience onstage, and want to make the transition to other media. Or maybe you’ve worked in other areas of film or television production, and want to try your hand in front of the camera.
Well, this is an inspiring chance to find out if you have what it takes. The intensive workshops will teach participants the fundamental skills needed to create memorable performances for the camera. You’ll learn the process an actor undergoes throughout the production cycle including; getting the job, preparing for the job and doing the job. And you’ll come away with a sound, first-hand understanding of the art, the craft, and the business of acting for the camera.
You can be a total beginner or an experienced member of a local drama group, all you need is to be at least 17 years of age (indeed over 40s especially welcome) and would love the chance to land a role in a film, TV drama, or commercials. The course is being hosted by The Irish Film Actors Workshop and will run over both days from 11am to 7pm. It takes place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with a maximum of ten participants and will be led by Shane Munro, acting on-camera lecturer, film producer, and actors agent. No previous acting experience is necessary, only the enthusiasm and willingness to listen, jump in, and take part on-camera,
The workshops also provides a fantastic opportunity for participants to learn the essentials of screen acting such as: how best to audition for commercials, cold-read for feature films, hit your marks, work in close-up, medium shot and long shot, use of props, shoot dramatic scenes, get an agent, use engaging 10 x 8 headshots, network with castings directors, compile a show reel, and get called to auditions and land the part when you get there.
The course is an excellent confidence builder which improves the communication and social skills necessary for successful job interviews, work presentation, etc.
