be successful in Film and TV Acting you need the real on
set location experience with a professional experienced crew
and professional industry filming equipment which is
almost impossible to get unless you actually get a
part. So very much a catch 22 situation for aspiring
actors. We solve that difficult problem by
consistently delivering that real on set location
Film and TV experience as the core part of our training. We do
this by regularly producing award winning films
with a professional
crew and equipment for students to develop those
much needed key skills.
Still from on set Sisterhood of the Red
Our equipment is professional broadcast standard cameras
recording to disk recorders at very high bit rates
exactly the same as any commercial film
so no small domestic and inferior cameras such as
low budget DSLR's, pro-sumer camcorders etc
its the real thing! Because we are also a production
company which makes us unique among acting
schools for Film and TV; it means our actors always benefit from having
the best equipment and technical help on hand all the
time not just borrowed or rented for a short periods. We also
shoot in 3D to add an extra dimension on the films
we produce something no one else does. 3D gives the
added bonus it gets our footage seen by far more people
around the world. With Virtual Reality just around the
corner having filmed 3D will be a huge benefit!

Our aim is
to get students on camera and being a Film and TV actor
from day one! We have our own purpose built STUDIO
with full GREEN screen facilities all sides top and
bottom painted flat walls so we can do very advanced seamless integration, not
just a sheet of flimsy green material stuck behind the
actor. 3D and other up to date film and
TV technical facilities are available as is new
Virtual Reality as well. Because of our
professional facilities and extensive long term
and TV production
experience, we are
able to put actors in a real acting environment straight away,
something very few others can even come close to.

classrooms where we can train students in comfort,
not some large open space or community
centre. That way you learn faster and better than
anywhere else and we can maintain for you a
personal friendly atmosphere that promotes
remarkable progress from our actors in all our film
and TV classes. To maintain
the small friendly classes numbers are strictly
limited and priority on available places on advanced
classes are given to students coming from our other courses.

We are unique in genuinely having our own Production
company that has successfully had work
from as early
as 1995 shown amongst
others on itv, Meridian, CH4, BBC not to
mention many overseas TV stations around the world. Our customers
include the likes of Citizens Advice and Yorkshire
forward as well as many councils and local
authorities across the UK.
We also have
many other blue chip corporate customers quite a few of whom
allow us to uniquely pay money back to our actors
for appearing in their various projects.
This means we
always have instant access to both equipment and
technical professionals to make our actors look their very
