The Prague Film School offers an accredited conservatory Acting for Film program. The students rigorously train in on-camera acting, voice, movement, acting theory and the business of acting. While some 90% of actors experience theater training, 90% of work for actors is in filmed media. To be successful in this highly competitive field, knowledge of techniques specific to film is essential for today’s actor.
Coursework emphasizes training for the naturalistic portrayal of character, the most frequent style used in film. The program teaches both the art and craft of acting, making use of a variety of techniques ranging from Meisner‘s behavior-based method, to technically oriented exercises designed to calibrate performance for camera, developed by Department Head, Nancy Bishop.
These tools are applied to the preparation of scenes which are filmed and critiqued for effectiveness. Students are in front of camera from the first day of their studies, and act frequently in student films, gaining valuable on camera experience. Each student leaves the program with ample material for a marketable show reel.
