Screen Acting

This 18-month full time MA in Screen Acting offers students professional training in acting for a range of screen based industries. The MA provides the requisite specialist techniques and advanced performance skills which will equip students for a career in any of the major areas of the industry where moving image content production is focused: Film, TV, Games, Adverts and Trailers. Students are taught by working industry professionals and great emphasis is placed upon working to 'real-world' briefs, to 'real-world' deadlines and in a professional environment within a state of the art media technology facility. Underpinned by traditional visceral and dynamic acting classes, students will also be trained in Motion Capture Performance, Combat for the Screen and Voice, as they gain a deep applied knowledge of the opportunities for the contemporary screen actor. Working closely with other Masters students they will gain valuable on-set experience through the numerous film production projects produced within the department each year. This programme recognises the significant place the performer has in MoCap for cinema and gaming, the demands for combat and armoury awareness and the opportunities offered for voicing animated characters, voice overs for advertising and ADR. Collaborating with students studying Film Production, 3D Animation and Screenwriting, students are encouraged to devise and produce their own work as they prepare to enter this highly competitive professional field. During the final 6 months of the programme students will engage with self-directed independent study as they create and produce their major research project. This project will be supported through mentoring and staged draft submissions and can be a combination of artefacts, a single large-scale specialist production supported by critical reflective analysis or a significant and appropriate dissertation piece.
