The Acting for Camera – Intermediate course has been designed to support those with some experience of screen acting to hone their skills. Whether you act as a hobby, have taken part in university productions, or are considering full-time conservatoire training, the programme will support you in your development as a performer. The course will give you a practical experience of screen acting, with a focus on using techniques developed by Sanford Meisner.

This course builds upon the foundational skills taught as part of the beginner level Acting for Camera course in April 2024. However, it is not mandatory to attend the beginner level course prior to attending the intermediate course. We welcome individuals with a working knowledge of performing for camera to sign up directly to this course.

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School offers a fun and nurturing environment in which to pursue your creative ambitions. The support and feedback available from your tutor will help you develop your natural talents and confidence in acting for camera.

The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
