12 Dec 2016 :
Filmbase is delighted to announce the second in a series of talent development schemes for actors. ‘CLOSE UP’ is a professional development programme for actors at Filmbase with new dates starting Tuesday 14th February 2017.

The studio will run on Tuesday evenings and actors will work with a different director each week, adding up to a unique series of professional workshops.
 

Close Up is intended as a programme for actors who are developing their screen careers and can benefit from focused professional feedback on craft technique. Participants must have some existing credits or recognised professional training in order to apply. It is not a traditional acting course and is not suitable for beginners.

 

Each workshop will be led by a different director, ensuring that all participating actors gain a valuable experience working with a range of different professionals and gaining an insight into the different ways directors communicate and prepare actors for scenes.
