Screenwise Acting School

85% of an actor’s career long income will come from film and TV work.

Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) September 16, 2013

Statistics show that 85% of an actor's career long income will come from film and TV work. Screenwise Acting School has consequently developed their two year, full time, Diploma of Screen Acting course so that emerging actors have the best chance possible at obtaining paid acting work.

Actors nowadays must therefore be highly skilled in the technical aspects of screen acting found on set as well as equipped to work in an industry where screen content is on the rise. They must also be capable of working for a number of different screen content platforms.

Screen content, particularly on the small screen, is on the rise. Whereas once screen acting jobs were limited to film and TV drama roles, there is now a wealth of presenting roles for reality programs, commercials, internet content and even video games available on numerous devices.

An actor needs to be highly skilled in the on set technical aspects such as shooting out of sequence, continuity, camera shots and angles, hitting marks, cheating eyelines and many other screen-specific skills.

Screenwise's Diploma of Screen Acting mixes a strong academic element with hard-nosed professionalism, providing total focus and immersion training in the unique skills and techniques required for screen acting to meet the demands of the industry.

Applications are now open for Screenwise's 2014 Diploma of Screen Acting and close on 15 November 2013.
