Adults – Studio Classes

The act4tv Group offers actors a training course with a difference, rather than focusing simply on the part when you’ve got the job. We help develop the skills and competences required when auditioning for an acting role in tv or film.

All courses have been developed to ensure that actors are fully engaged at all times and performing as much as possible. Each course explores the various elements required when acting and auditioning for tv and film:

  • Delivering Idents
  • Cold Reading
  • Getting the most from a script in 15 mins
  • Breaking down and understanding the subtext of a scene
  • Improvisation Technique

In addition, all performances are recorded and viewed in class so that constructive feedback can be given. Students can also view their own work online, in the privacy of their own home. This has proved to be a valuable learning tool – particularly when comparing performances at the start of the course to those later on.

All classes are performance driven and have been developed to ensure the actor is fully engaged at all times and performing as much as possible. In addition all performances are filmed and displayed on flat screen TV’s with free online access to view classroom footage in your own home.

Each week students in Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds work with the same scripts and the same course objectives, at the same time. This has proved to be particularly useful to students whose personal commitments mean that they are not always able to attend a class in their chosen location. All our students have the flexibility to attend the class which is closest to them.

What our actors are saying...

Farah Ahmed

Manchester Student - 2018

I just wanted to say 'thank you' for the Agent Panel. act4tv has been very instrumental in helping me turn many corners and grow. But best of all it's the one place I can be myself.

I am so glad I stumbled upon it back in 2016. It's not said enough, but you run a wee gem of an institution...

Sid James

Manchester Student - 2018

I wanted to mention that thanks to Charlie’s support at act4tv, I actually filmed my first commercial last week for Sofology. I’m also booked for another commercial in 3 weeks.

Samantha Rushton

Manchester Student - 2018

act4tv prepared me to feel comfortable working on a set, I knew how and where to hit my marks and it gave me the confidence to feel at home on a working set.

act4tv also gave me the skills to secure jobs and perform to the best of my ability and I would not be where I am today without their on-going support and teaching.
