The second year acting for film program builds upon techniques developed in the first year course. The curriculum provides students the opportunity to hone their skills further and to enter the Industry as competitive candidates for key film and television roles.

The program’s backbone remains practical scene work in front of the camera. The course places special emphasis on character work, utilizing Meisner, physical acting, character improvisation and other techniques introduced in the year course.
