Develop your skills in this Screen Acting workshop with Becky Sharpe, a film director who will help you grow in confidence.
Becky Sharpe is a film director offering a Screen Acting workshop over five sessions, to work with a small group of actors and aspiring actors to develop their on-camera presence and audition technique. In order to prepare you for an amazing future we will also be working on self awareness, healing and self-care during this time of crisis. The sessions will be fun, informal and with lots of practical fun things to do.
The classes are on Wednesdays and Fridays, starting on Wednesday 8th April - from 3.30pm to 6pm (UK time) and run like mini workshops for specific scenes from films, including new film scripts created especially for you, the Actor. The online workshops involve script preparation, character breakdown, discussion, rehearsal and on-camera practice. You will need a webcam (the camera in your phone is fine!) as you will be working on-camera and these classes include lots of fun, practical scenework using texts and using the camera.
This workshop is ideal for newcomers to the screen to gain confidence on-camera and for experienced actors to develop their audition technique. Whatever your experience level, this workshop will build on your existing skills and get you ready for future Audition Success!
With many auditions and self-tape requests only giving you 24-48 hours to submit, you need to have the skills of script breakdown and character analysis working for you... and fast. This course will enable you to do that, and so to wow Directors and Casting Directors at screen auditions.
This Screen acting workshop with Becky is informal and fun! You will develop your skills in understanding scripts, you will improve your ability in accepting direction and you will learn how to find a Character's truth, all in a simple technique Becky teaches that allows you to get results that impress. You will work with several scenes over the five sessions, and you will have fun working the scripts and filming them as you increase your awareness of human psychological behaviour for character work.

"Becky Sharpe - you're an absolute JOY to work with. I feel like in such a short time of knowing you you've been stamping out my life-long bad behaviours (like putting myself down or being negative) and building my acting confidence and technique with each session. You're the "stage mom" I never had. So basically... thank you!!"

“I loved attending Becky Sharpe’s Screen Acting Workshop over the weekend!! I had no idea what to expect but I loved every minute. Becky is awesome; she is just what I need in a teacher and have been searching for for a long long time! She’s a great mentor/director and teacher - I learnt so much on every level and I love how she makes you feel empowered to be yourself on camera. Her technique is so refreshing and inspiring I can’t wait to train more with Becky!
I have been training over the past 8 years and trained mainly in Meisner but Becky uses a variety of techniques to get the best out of you as an actor. And what I love most is that she inspires you and helps you work out your individual technique which I think is the most important thing for an actor. It’s very empowering and I love also how she is brutally honest and prepares you for being on set and for auditions and gets you making your own decisions for yourself from the word go. It’s really enlightening and I couldn’t recommend Becky enough. Thank you so so much – I’m so happy I met you and I can’t wait to learn more"

“A lovely screen acting class with Becky. The regular acting training helps me remove the corporate mask I have worn in the past during my corporate career. In some professions, we suppress our emotions and thus wear a mask.
However, acting is not like any other profession, the beautiful art that we love. I have found that by training regularly in Becky’s sessions, it helps me become emotionally naked and vulnerable. One of the strong attributes of training with Becky is her style of teaching helps you relax, be in the moment and access your emotions. Looking forward to continuing the journey and seeing some further great work in class.”

“Going to Becky Sharpe’s workshop last weekend was incredible. I’ve missed acting so much, and I haven’t been doing acting for a long time as I was studying dance at university. I was very nervous getting back into it. Becky helped me restore the confidence and the push I needed. She has definitely made me realise that “YES, THIS IS WHAT I DEFINITELY WANT TO DO AND SUCCEED IN”.
Becky has this incredible aura where she is very straightforward and to the point of what you need to do and how to do it. Becky is also very insightful and I truly believe she knows what she is doing. A very talented person who truly cares about her students. Inspirational and worth going to her workshops, she is truly dedicating her time for her students and helping us in what we need in order to achieve our dreams. Thank you so much Becky, I really appreciate it. I do hope to see you soon, much love!”
