Aspiring actors in Mullingar who dream of following in the footsteps of Liam Neeson or Colin Farrell will have a chance to gain invaluable advice at an acting for film and television workshop being held at the Mullingar Park Hotel, from Tuesday February 11 to Thursday February 12.
The workshops provide an opportunity for participants to learn the essentials of screen acting such as learning how best to audition for commercials, cold-read for feature films, hit your marks, work in close-up, medium shot and long shot, correct use of props, shoot dramatic scenes, get an agent, use engaging 10 x 8 headshots, network with castings directors, compile a show reel, get called to auditions, and land the part when you get there.
The course is led by Shane Munro, film producer and actors agent who is better known for his roles in many television ads including Yorkie, Peugeot, Braun, Supervalu, Vodafone, Ulster Bank, and Bulmers. He was also executive producer on the award-winning film To Catch A Crow, directed by Shay Leonard, which won Best Film at the BBC International Film Festival in London and also screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
The Film Actors Workshop continues to set the professional standard in Ireland for screen acting training. It has given hundreds of actors the opportunity to work in a safe, relaxed environment, to find their feet and develop their self confidence in front of the camera.
The course is being hosted by the Irish Film Actors Workshop and will run from 7pm to 10.30pm each evening. There are 10 places available for anyone interested in getting acting work in television dramas, commercials, and feature films.
No previous acting experience is necessary, only enthusiasm and a willingness to plunge in and take part on-camera. Participants must be over 17 and over 40s and 50s are especially welcome.
Booking is essential as places are limited. To book a place on this exciting course or for further info, call (074 ) 9126994 or e-mail [email protected].
