Real World Film & TV Child/Teen Acting Classes

Northern Film and Drama (NFD) Celebrating 22 years 1994 - 2016

The very BEST training you can ever get for Film and TV is to act in front of the camera and that is exactly what we do! Many promise but we deliver time and time again!

"Unlike other organisations who combine drama singing and dancing we ONLY teach Film and TV!"

This is a scene from Wayward High (Sweet Sam episode) the latest TV pilot from NFD (currently being filmed during 2016). 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" (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.

Scenes from Platform 2c that we use to train children on set in a real world set environment.



We are truly unique in that we provide "Real World" Film and TV acting classes, audition technique, casting director visits, acting to camera, green screen techniques, acting workshops for CHILDREN who want to experience and or be part of this exciting industry. Our aim is to get STUDENTS on camera and being an actor as soon as we possibly can! We have our own purpose built STUDIO with green screen, 3D and other up to date film and TV technical facilities which we believe is one of only a very few outside of London. Because of our facilities we are able to put students in a realistic acting environment straight away something very few others can even come close to.
