Non-verbal communication

Entirely camera based, both courses work on the premise that 85% of communication is non-verbal and that words are often an avoidance technique used to disguise what is really being communicated. Working with contemporary script and screenplay, students, rather than focusing on the words, will explore the way in which film is driven by thoughts, by virtue of the fact that the camera allows the audience to observe the thoughts of the actors and thereby follow their reactions. 

Summer school tutors

Chris Durnall - Artistic Director ‘Company of Sirens’
Peter Wooldridge - Casting Director and Acting Coach

There is also the option for students to record prepared material for show reel and website purposes. For full summer school details and fees email

"The Workshop was where I started, and it really gave me the confidence to do things. I was a really quiet kid when I started and The Workshop really helped me come out of my shell. It got me the most important audition of my life. Without that, I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing."
