It involves one evening a week (during term-time) dedicated to learning to act for the screen.

You need to be aged between 14 and 26 years old to apply.

Beginning in September 2017, students study professional American performance techniques with an award-winning lm director and build up to the creation of cinema work, to showcase their acting talent, on the big screen. The work studied is based on the techniques of Sanford Meisner and incorporates learning to perform with digital cinema cameras and sound equipment.

This course can produce extraordinary results and can be life changing for participants. We believe this is one of the best and most unique acting courses in the world.

Places are very limited and require an informal interview with Jack Price.

Email and we can set up a date.

The course can be used as part of a DofE award. (14-18 year olds)

All tutors are DBS enhanced checked.


Jack Price is an award winning lm director and teacher.
He has made lms with the BBC and Channel Four, Ridley Scott, Idris Elba and Kathleen Kennedy. His work has recently been seen across the US and UK cinema screens.

Jack has taught with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, BFI Film Academy, The Tobacco Factory Theatres and The Actors Centre, London.

Recent graduates of the program are starring in BBC dramas, working on professional feature lms and have gained places with National Drama Schools, Performing Arts Schools, Universities and The National Youth Theatre.

Jack also specialises in techniques for dyslexic performers.

We have been proud to be part of the community engagement and look forward to working with Jack Price and the Youth Cinema Foundation in the future. Debbie Hillyerd

Head of Education, Hauser and Wirth, Somerset

The performers have all progressed immensely and I feel my lmmaking abilities have risen no end, due to not only being completely immersed, but also due to Jack who is an incredible lmmaker, visionary and mentor. Anyone looking to develop their skills I cannot recommend this course enough. This is something I will carry through my career.

Get yourself onto this course. Jack's teaching drills deep into the heart of performance, connection on stage, and gives clear parameters and guidance to create vulnerable and truthful performances... Such important learning for me. Can't wait to start applying it and watch it grow from here.
