Short Stuff

Screen Acting | Ages 7-8 years | 2 Years of Content

Filmbites Short Stuff Screen Acting classes are the youngest classes we offer for acting for the screen. Our focus is on introducing and developing fundamental acting techniques in a fun and nurturing environment.

Short Stuff focuses on; getting comfortable in front of a camera, movement and basic character, introduction to story and improvisation. 

Along with the basics of drama, they’ll be learning essential ‘soft skills’ and screen acting techniques for a future in acting such as;

  • listening
  • creativity
  • teamwork and
  • focus.

Students progress through a new curriculum each term and put their skills to practice by filming a short film in Term 4.
