Event description


Becky Sharpe is a film director offering a Screen Acting Foundation Workshop across the weekend of 19th and 20th October to work with a small group of actors to develop their on-camera presence. (If you can't make the weekend, please email Becky for other options to fit your schedule, including the midweek sessions and the Professional Screen Training Course).

The classes are starting at 10.30am and finishing at 5pm each day on Saturday and Sunday, and run like mini workshops for specific scenes from films, including Becky's latest film script and a monologue. The workshops involve script preparation, character breakdown, discussion, rehearsals 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 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 live filming scenarios as well as self-directing to prepare for the film set. You will progress from monologue work to dualogue scenes, and build your awareness of camera-specific screen presence that can be very impactful (like eyeline work, connection and motivation).

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

Whether you are a newcomer to acting, or an experienced professional actor, 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

Some Recent Reviews:

"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 studying 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. So happy I met you and I can’t wait to learn more "

"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 straight forward 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!"

Sahar Tariq - Actress

"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 delivers great sessions that allow you to try new things and feel comfortable in doing so. You get lots of time in front of the camera and just as much time to watch yourself back and observe your work. Becky puts everyone at ease and you always leave having learnt something valuable to go away and think about and work on."

Daniel Woodger - Actor

"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"

Claudette Burke - Actress

"I would definitely recommend this course if anyone is looking to make a massive improvement in their screen acting performance. Becky shows you how to be natural whilst having thoughts running through your head that will help serve the script without even needing to push it. Also you will get to keep the footage so what is there not to love."
