Film Acting Course Structure

Film Acting Course Structure

Acting in film and video is about, in large part, reacting and listening. And beyond all that, it is all about psychology. In this One-Month course, you will learn the art and craft of acting from the professional experience of faculty Mr. Siddhartha Shasta. The course explores techniques that can be applied in a range of mediums like Film, TV, Commercial Ads, Web, etc. However, the main focus of this course is not just on developing acting skills but also on exploring the magic behind emotional manipulation.

The process continues with chopping and changing of exercises and scenes to suit the time, keeping in mind that the universality of emotions and feeling remains the same, it doesn’t change with time. The course content includes several acting exercises, movement and voice, diction, speech. The course also includes making of portfolios and regular shooting of acting exercises on camera which are used for analytical proposes as well as serve as show-reels of students for presentation to producers.

Innovative curriculum

Sixteen By Nine Media Centre’s Film Acting Course, which is a highly specialised training program, has been developed in consultation with editors working at the very highest level of film & television editing. Through this approach, we have ensured that our course structure is in tandem with industry requirements.

The acting course is based on the program developed by the renowned acting guru, late Mr.Stanford Meisner at the Neighbourhood Playhouse School of the Theater, New York.

Intensive training

The Course goes way beyond basic acting theory. Over 4 weeks, 10hrs  a week, students will learn hundreds of structural, conceptual and creative techniques used in film acting. The course provides you with professional-level theory, assignments to practice on and a guided tour through the creative & technical acting process.

Student-centred approach

The course enables active learning, in which students solve problems, answer questions, formulate questions of their own, discuss, explain, debate, or brainstorm during classes. Students will also use the cooperative learning mode, in which they will work in teams on problems and exercises under conditions that assure both positive interdependence and individual accountability; and inductive teaching and learning, in which students are first presented with challenges (questions or problems) and learn the course material in the context of addressing the challenges

The greatest way to maximise your employability as a professional actor is to master as many techniques, concepts and genres as possible. Sixteen By Nine Media Centre trainees have access to Sixteen By Nine Media Production’s productions and projects.
