Repeat: Acting for Camera with Theatre and Film Director Eleri B. Jones – 24 Mar

Repeat Coaching focuses on developing creative performance.

These sessions will also give professional performers an opportunity to join a community of performers, collaborate with new artists, and improve their skills in an open and encouraging space.

Finding opportunities outside of a professional set environment to hone and develop your screen technique can be few and far between – this workshop will give you a chance to work with other professionals and Director Eleri B. Jones in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Through duologues sent out in advance, you’ll be exploring how to pitch your performance, create character, and use screen tips & tricks to help shape your performance. You’ll also be able to learn through watching your peers, and get feedback on your work from the class.

With an MA from Drama Centre London in Screen Acting, 10 years working in TV & film and 7 years experience in casting, Eleri will guide you through how she works with actors on set, giving advice and guidance on how to deliver in those all important self-tapes, and then, (when you get the job!) on set too.

Beginners, developing and established actors welcome.
