Key-BoardDo you want to learn how to maximise your chances of being on TV or the big screen?

We are running a great introductory course for any newbies who want to learn about working on a film or TV production or are just curious about the first steps to being an actor.
You will learn the do’s and dont’s, on set jargon and all other important need to know information that most people don’t have the opportunity to learn before going on to a professional film or TV production studio.The course will be managed by an Assistant Director who has been working in the film and TV industry for more then seven years.

You will get the opportunity to meet and interact with Assistant Directors from a popular New Zealand TV Series – these people are responsible for booking Extras, Featured Extras and Character Extras so you will get the chance to prove that you are competent and able to deliver what’s required on set.

A film or TV production set can be an intimidating place however once you have spent a few hours with our team it won’t seem so daunting.

The next course will be held this coming Saturday the 14th of June 2014 in the Auckland Central Area running from 10am to 12pm.

The cost of the workshop is $46 including GST.

If you would like to register for this workshop please contact us and we will send you information on how to register.
