Event description

Description

Becky Sharpe is a film director offering a Screen Acting workshop on Wednesdays, starting on 25th September to work with a small group of aspiring actors to develop their on-camera presence over six sessions. (If you can't make Wednesdays, please email Becky for other options to fit your schedule).

The classes are from 10.30am to 1.30pm in a studio in Vauxhall and run like mini workshops for specific scenes from films, including new film scripts created especially for you, the Actor. The workshops involve script preparation, character breakdown, discussion, rehearsal and on-camera practice. You will be given filmed sequences to keep for your showreel.

This workshop is ideal for newcomers to the screen to gain confidence on-camera and for experienced actors who to develop their screen presence. Whatever your experience level, this workshop will build on your existing skills and give you something fresh to add to your reel.

You will develop your skills in understanding and accepting direction in filming scenarios as well as learning how to prepare for screen auditions. You will work with a monologue and with a dualogue scene, and you will build your awareness of camera-specific screen presence that can be very impactful (including eyeline work, moment by moment connection and character motivation).

The screen acting workshops with Becky are informal and fun, covering different topics, including the important aspects of camera acting, stage dynamics with fellow cast members, professional on-set behaviour - and we will apply the teaching to specific scenes and character roles.

Whether you are a newcomer to acting, or an experienced professional, this is an opportunity to:


• Build your confidence in front of the camera

• Allow your authenticity to show on-screen

• Develop self-awareness in your acting

• Learn how to develop character for TV and Film

• Create fresh material for your Showreel

• Improve your Audition Technique

• Work with a director who will energise you

• Develop your technical abilities for camera



There are six workshops that make up this series of workshops in Screen Acting - in these workshops you will spend some of the time working on a monologue, some on a dualogue with a scene partner, and some time on how to prepare for screen auditions and film work on-set.


Some Recent Reviews:

"Becky Sharpe - you're an absolute JOY to work with. I feel like in such a short time of knowing you you've been stamping out my life-long bad behaviours (like putting myself down or being negative) and building my acting confidence and technique with each session. You're the "stage mom" I never had. So basically... thank you!!"

“I loved attending Becky Sharpe’s Screen Acting Workshop Over the weekend!! I had no idea what to expect but I loved every minute. Becky is awesome she is just what I need in a teacher and have been searching for for a long long time! She’s a great mentor/director and teacher - I learnt so much on every level and I love how she makes you feel empowered to be yourself on camera. Her technique is so refreshing and inspiring I can’t wait to train more with Becky!

I have been training over the past 8 years and trained mainly in Meisner but Becky uses a variety of techniques to get the best out of you as an actor. And what I love most is that she inspires you and helps you work out your individual technique which I think is the most important thing for an actor. It’s very empowering and I love also how she is brutally honest and prepares you for being on set and for auditions and gets you making your own decisions for yourself from the word go. It’s really empowering and enlightening and I couldn’t recommend Becky enough. Thank you so so much – I’m so happy I met you and I can’t wait to learn more"

“A lovely screen acting class with Becky. The regular acting training helps me remove the corporate mask I have worn in the past during my corporate career. In some professions, we suppress our emotions and thus wear a mask.

However, acting is not like any other profession, the beautiful art that we love. I have found that by training regularly in Becky’s sessions, it helps me become emotionally naked and vulnerable. One of the strong attributes of training with Becky is her style of teaching helps you relax, be in the moment and access your emotions. Looking forward to continuing the journey and seeing some further great work in class.”

Ravi Summan - Actor

“Going to Becky Sharpe’s workshop last weekend was incredible. I’ve missed acting so much, and I haven’t been doing acting for a long time as I was studying dance at university. I was very nervous getting back into it. Becky helped me restore the confidence and the push I needed. She has definitely made me realise that “YES, THIS IS WHAT I DEFINITELY WANT TO DO AND SUCCEED IN”.

Becky has this incredible aura where she is very straightforward and to the point of what you need to do and how to do it. Becky is also very insightful and I truly believe she knows what she is doing. A very talented person who truly cares about her students. Inspirational and worth going to her workshops, she is truly dedicating her time for her students and helping us in what we need in order to achieve our dreams. Thank you so much Becky, I really appreciate it. I do hope to see you soon, much love!”

"I had an absolutely fab time working with Becky during her course of screen acting workshops. Such a fab director who understands the actors needs - coming from a theatre background I found this incredibly helpful when working in front of the camera. I also had a breakthrough in the last session which felt wonderful! Thank you Becky for all of your help x"

Ciara Waterfield – Actress

"Becky is an excellent holistic teacher. Whilst the main focus of the course is screen acting she also encourages students to look after themselves and suggests materials to help them. Her group is supportive and I my confidence has grown as my course has progressed. I would recommend Becky's classes to anyone"
