The goal: get you on camera as much as humanly possible within a year. Forget written tests and theory textbooks - get out there and do it. You’ll star in multiple film productions weekly working in tandem with the filmmakers. When you’re not rehearsing or on the set, you’ll join workshops with professional tutors to train your body and voice.

Our degrees are awarded and validated by the University of St Mark & St John

Ignite your passion, hone your technique, master the art of storytelling and push your creative boundaries to their limit.
