This dynamic ongoing introduction course is aimed at the adult student who is curious about what it takes to get started as an actor.

Incorporating stage performance, but aimed at skills for film and television, this course targets the actor who is serious about learning all aspects of the craft, and wants a fast track to representation by agencies.

Learn skills to impress agents and casting directors, with a career development component loaded with the necessary tools to land these all-important bookings.

With a philosophy of developing a solid foundation, Spotlight Academy has launched the careers of working actors from all over Vancouver Island. You only have to read the Spotlight Academy Testimonial Page to see that our students find meaningful work in this highly competitive field.

You will graduate from this course with information overload ready to take on advanced studies with a solid understanding of what this demanding industry holds. It's all or nothing!

The fundamentals of acting will be covered, which can be used on stage or screen.

We include:

  • Introduction to voice and movement in specifically targeted sessions
  • Solid improvisation skills needed for commercials
  • Audition techniques
  • Scene study and character development
  • Camera angles and continuity work
  • Mentoring and guidance is given in developing each actor's tool kit.

We advise on headshots, resumes, working with agents and managers and union membership.

It's all part of the unique Spotlight Package.
