AFTT's Advanced Diploma of Stage & Screen Acting incorporates 26 units which guide students through the core principles of acting, movement and voice for stage, film and television. Gaining a solid acting technique however is just one part of the journey to success. At AFTT students are taught the importance of articulating and developing their own creative goals and are encouraged to explore conceptual techniques and different acting traditions. These are then integrated throughout the course into many dynamic screen and theatre productions from theatre classics to contemporary film scene work, for personal interpretation and practice.
The acting system taught at AFTT is unique and incorporates the dynamic Eric Morris, Meyerhold BioMechanics and other internationally recognised techniques that equip the actor with a robust and logical pathway to producing physical and emotional performance. This training is the only kind in the country that fuses the psychology of acting with an approach to moving, and embodying the character, for both stage and screen.
During the final semester of this course, a complete package of assets is created (including a showreel, headshots and showcase performance media), ensuring students graduate with a well-developed portfolio to show prospective employers. Graduates who successfully complete this course may seek articulation into the Bachelor of Arts (Stage and Screen Acting) at the University of New England (UNE).
