Are you between six and 17 years old? Would you like to act in a film? If your answer is yes, then this is the course for you.
Using cameras and scripts, students at Trading Faces Stage School perform to camera making their own films. These shorts will then be entered into film festivals. Love At First Sight was the winner of Galway Junior Film Fleadh 2012, while Words came second place in Fresh Film Festival 2013.
This course offers participants the opportunity to experience the business of acting on film from both in front of and behind the camera.
