This is a sample scene from Crooked Billet the latest "FEATURE" film from NFD (currently being filmed during 2016/17). It is a key part of our very unique on set training that all our actors get to be part of the internationally award winning films and TV programmes we make.


This provides second to none acting experience, top class showreel material, Spotlight professional acting credits (feature films), Imdb professional acting credits, and frequently goes on to provide other worth while parts in a wide range of film and TV projects. Actors who have appeared in our various film and TV projects have gone on for example to take main parts in "Coronation Street", "Emmerdale Farm" "Skins" "My Parents are Aliens" "The Chase" "Vera" "Penny Dreadful" (TV) and "Far from the Madding Crowd" "Hanna" "Tamara Drewe" "Mrs Radcliffe's Revolution" "The Lobster" (Feature Films) to name just a few of so many. This is exactly what we are all about!

"Only when an actor unreservedly and totally immerses their very being into the character & situation can they truly act"


Tuesdays: 18.30hrs - 19.30hrs

Next 12 week course cycle start dates are - 06/09/16 then 10/01/17 you can choose to start at the beginning of a cycle or at any time during a 12 week cycle - please see below for details of other options or feel free to ring us and we can talk through what works for you best.


Set course dates never seem to suit everyone so now you can start when you want to on a 12 week rolling cycle. That means you can start at any time through a courses 12 week cycle. For example if you start on week 8 then you would finish your course on week 7 of the next 12 week cycle.

Sometimes funds are short and we understand that, so to spread the cost more It is possible now to attend this course every other week. For example you would attend 6 lessons from one 12 week cycle and then the remaining 6 lessons you didn't do on the next cycle thus completing the 12 sessions for the course. Lessons are self contained on one subject so its not a problem if you haven't done the previous lessons yet.


Adult Film and TV Acting Classes are held in Leeds "South Milford" LS25 5AR - Directions are HERE


Our Classes are small friendly and personal to get to know you really well with average class sizes of just 8 - 9. We only teach in small groups as workshops will never deliver the level of individual training you need to succeed for worth while parts.

Still from the 90 minute FEATURE FILM "CROOKED BILLET" currently in production 2016/17 that ALL students GET THE OPPORTUNITY to work on.


Classes are held in our own purpose built film and TV studio where we can instantly play back your performances in comfort, not some large open space sterile hall 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 all our actors. To maintain the small friendly classes, numbers are strictly limited.

Still from the 90 minute FEATURE FILM "CROOKED BILLET" currently in production 2016/17 that ALL students GET THE OPPORTUNITY to work on.


You don't need any experience and you can be any age from 16 - 80, you just need the dedication and determination to want to work hard and give it your best! If you have that we can and will get you there, no matter your experience or lack of it. Because our class sizes are small we can happily take students who need a more personal individual approach, often working near miracles with students who for example find reading harder than most and similar concerns. Confidence building is our speciality and all students rapidly improve often within only a few weeks.

Highly recommended for anyone looking to break in to Film and TV. This is a key course for beginners and or actors with previously only theatre training/just finished a drama degree etc as this course actively prepares you specifically for Film and TV.  Once students have completed this class we would expect them to move across to either the advanced or drop in classes and start to appear in our show case "Platform 2c" where we produce full feature length films (also in 3D and with advanced green screen work and some cross over with the teenage section with our TV show "Wayward High", and juniors with various short films) which go on to be shown all over the world. December 2014 (Christmas and New Year) our film "Hollows Wood" had multiple showings on USA TV in Texas to great acclaim and has done very well else where in the USA, plus in Japan and China as has the follow up "Jailhouse Dog"

This class is all about getting you started in Film and TV for worth while parts (level 1 and above - see below). Low end work such as walk on adverts, extra work, student films etc are not covered as in our humble opinion no training is really required for such work.

Acting in LEEDS Yorkshire - Scale for Talent


Those who already have agents and those who don't are most welcome. For students with potential we can help with the latter.

There are many web casting organisations all claiming to make you a "STAR" and all less for spotlight deal in low quality work requiring little at best to no talent at worst. Extra work, short/student films, adverts etc are all low grade work and are more likely to harm your cv than help it if you really want to get worth while parts. Particularly for adults for children its not as important.

We work hard with our students as a spotlight registered agent to fulfil the stringent criteria required to be accepted by them. This is in our opinion the only worth while online casting organisation given all the substantial/main parts from Game of Thrones to the main Hollywood Films etc all appear here and generally no where else. If you aren't good enough to be on spotlight you can't apply simple as that so we work hard to get you there.
