Sydney Theatre School Releases New Short Screen Acting Course


SYDNEY, Australia April, 2012 – Many Australians have become great screen actors  – Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman just to name a few – but according to one industry insider most aspiring actors won’t make it to the big screen because they don’t understand the difference between acting in front of an audience and really making it work on the screen.

That’s why Mark Matthews, managing director and course director at Sydney Theatre School, has released a short course for aspiring Aussie actors who specifically wish to explore acting in front of a camera.

“The Certificate in Screen Acting will open new doors for actors who desire to act in front of a camera,” says Matthews. “Students learn the creative and practical skills required to analyse and breakdown a script, deliver a truthful performance on screen and make interesting dramatic choices in front of the camera.”

The course introduces students to the basic skills and techniques of acting for camera and explores the similarities and differences between stage and screen performances. Students are introduced to the challenges facing an actor working in film and television, which aims to demystify the screen acting process and enable actors to begin feeling more confident and relaxed on camera, explains Matthews.

Students enrolled in this particular acting program also receive expert advice on finding auditions for roles and landing gigs; including guidance on how and when to contact agents regarding representation.

Sydney Theatre School graduate Kate Bludhorn says, “Not only have I grown and developed as an actor, I have also gained vital knowledge of the industry that will help me in launching my professional career.”

Sydney Theatre School has a reputation for producing successful acting graduates. Many former students have gone on to secure work in Australian and international feature films, television shows, various television commercials and theatre productions. Underbelly, Packed to the Rafters, The Pacific, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, American Burger, Home and Away, The Astronaut and Crownies are among the various productions Sydney Theatre School students have been involved in.

“Sydney Theatre School provides you with … invaluable information about the industry and the business of being an actor. I highly recommend it for all people considering acting as a career,” says Alana Rafter, happy Sydney Theatre School graduate.
