Our acting classes are dedicated to exploring ideas through drama, and turning them into amazing films. Young people learn how to build a character, how to improvise in role, how to create stories and how to create exciting drama. You can find out more about our key acting and filmmaking concepts in our Jobs Glossary.

The first drama session is free. There is no obligation to join. However, if your child enjoys the acting classes and would like to continue, we will ask you to set up a standing order of £36 per month (including VAT). This fee pays for 1 hour acting lesson per week, during school term time and two days on our Easter shoot.

The resulting film is then shown at a leading regional cinema later in July, before being professionally published and released on DVD or BluRay. Some of our films go on to be entered into film festivals. 

Each actor has the opportunity to take a speaking role in a film, shooting on location with our professional film crew, using broadcast quality equipment.


Our team work very hard to make professional quality films, and give young people real industry experience. We also want to make the experience as accessible as possible to young people from all backgrounds. This is why we our acting classes are also a registered childminding service. 

Because we are an Ofsted-registered company, you could get up to 70% off the course price if you are eligible for child tax credit.
