Screen Acting Workshop

Earlier this week I put out a tweet offering a free screen acting workshop for four actors on February 17th.

I didn’t expect it to blow up in the way it did, the interest has been huge.

So in order to break things down a bit more, I am writing this to clarify who it is for and who can benefit from it.

First things first – this will be taking place on February 17th, from 11am-3pm in Stratford, East London.

This is not a course where you will be gaining showreel material – although I may release footage to participants at the end, but I recommend it for training purposes, for self-reflection, but not to form a professional showreel.

The ideal participants –

    – Have some professional acting training and experience.

    – Do not currently have strong showreel material (if you are already deep into your journey with screen acting, I’d rather you leave this to the less experienced)

    -Are confident in their acting abilities but a little daunted or shy about screen work (a big part of what I want to achieve is to demstifying screen acting, to give you confidence doing it)

    -More used to being on stage than screen.

    -I am open to all ages and backgrounds, but am keen to work with people who don’t yet have a great deal of screen experience.

    If you’re serious about being involved and think you’d enjoy working on this for a day –

    Please email: dj@danieljohnsonfilms.co.uk, give me a paragraph about yourself and why you think you would benefit from doing this.

    And please do send your Spotlight/headshots (it’s not strictly necessary you’re on spotlight, but certainly desirable.)

    I only have four spaces. And for the time being at least, this is one day only!

    Also, I am likely to film this day and use it for marketing materials – so please only get in touch if you are happy for our work together to be filmed.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    If you like this, would you mind sharing it?

  1. Hi Daniel
    You are so kind to tweet me back about your workshop when there are only four places. Just a quick intro: I’ve worked in musical theatre and stage for 15 years, mainly ensemble and small parts. I’ve been trying to expand my skill set and use my acting abilities in various media. I hope you’ve seen my showreel and seen what I can do and spotted what I can work on. Let me know if you think I would be a good contributor to your workshop.

  2. Hi

    I would love to be considered for this, i started tearing in 2016 in screen acting then went on to do a one year theatre foundation course. I can find it difficult to get into character sometimes. I would like help with this as I think it stops em being cast.
