Acting Bootcamp with showreel

Posted by henry deville on June 22, 2014 at 12:50 AM Comments comments ()


We have just added an extra set of days for our next series of workshops, "The Acting for camera Boot Camp." It's a 2 day intensive course running on 26th/27th July in Dublin.

And then once a month after that.

We will also be casting for our next film and you will get a recorded scene at the end of it.

This is a 2 day intensive course that covers all the major aspects of acting for film. Its a 'hands on' practical course and you get a completed 3-5 minute acting showreel at the end of it! During the course you will learn the techniques for working with the camera, how to build a role, creating your character, working with a team, overcoming nervous energy, using your voice and body (your natural actors tools) for maximum effect.

During the course the students and the director will device some original scenes which will then be rehearsed and filmed. Each student will have 1 monologue, 1 duologue. As we work on the scenes, you will be getting invaluable training and encouragement from the director. You will also learn audition techniques and get an insight into finding work, getting an agent or even learning how to manage your own career.

The course is held in a film studio environment with up to the minute HD digital equipment and is perfect for actors looking for experience and training in film performance, new skills and a show reel.

It costs 150 Euro

Grainne Uaile - The movie

Posted by henry deville on April 16, 2014 at 11:10 AM Comments comments ()

This summer “Grainne Uaile - The movie” will be released from its ship in Ireland and sailing the festival circuits. A 3 hour epic, written and directed by Ciaron Davies and starring Fionnuala Collins as the infamou pirate queen, the movie was shot on location all over Ireland, North and south.

A violent and gritty retelling of the life of Grainne Uaile, the 16th century Pirate Queen from Ireland. She was a fighter, a pirate and a tough woman, carving her mark in a mans world. This exciting film is violent, dark, brutal, exciting and often darkly comic. The ultimate female action hero steeped in ancient Irish history.

Here are some stills from the movie
