Description of module content:

Your work in this trimester will consist of working in simulated professional environments
to produce sustained screen performances. This will be the culmination of your screen
acting experience where you will tackle complex material in a near professional
environment. The type and length of the material chosen will vary, and may involve any
number of cast members, depending upon the group’s and the projects’ needs. The
project will be technically, intellectually and emotionally more challenging than those in
earlier years. The nature of the role(s) you play will be dependent on the chosen scripts,
however your understanding and knowledge of the work will be extended by your
increased experience, and your technical acting, vocal and movement skills, will be
further developed by practice and teaching. You will also learn about working in a
professional screen context and understand the integration of different roles and
responsibilities in the production of a short film/ extended scene in front and behind the
lens. You will complete a number of short scenes/ films which you may be able to use as a part of your future show reel. You will have the chance to network and collaborate with your peers and other students as well as be directed by an external practitioner and/ or staff member in an extended scene. You will also critically reflect on and evaluate your peers’ contribution and professionalism throughout the module.
