SCREEN ACTING

STARTER LEVELS

More than just a drama class for kids….

Filmbites SHORT STUFF, BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL PREPARATION courses focus on introducing and developing fundamental screen skills in a fun and nurturing environment. As well as the basics of drama, they’ll be learning essential ‘soft skills’ for their future such as listening, creativity, team work and focus.

Students progress through a new curriculum each term and film a short film in term 4.

These courses can be joined at any stage, up until week 3 of term 3 (subject to availability).

Your tuition fee includes a copy of the end of year film and a complimentary student ticket to the Premiere Night screening at Event Cinema Morley, held in March the following year.
