On-camera Acting course: 1800kc

PIFA's On-camera Acting course provides a secure, dynamic environment for actors to develop their craft for the big screen.

Our large-screen cinema/ acting studio provides the perfect location for scene studies & direct feedback, where actors will be filmed and showcased, receiving valuable feedback in a friendly supportive setting. 

Instructors are professional actors, writers and directors currently working in Prague's busy film and commercial industry.  
We also work with local acting agencies and casting directors, and can share our expanding database accordingly.

We will put the camera to work for you, ensuring your comfortable relationship to light, lens and blocking and we will skillfully guide you through original scene work, and help bring out your best.

English will be the primary teaching and performance language used in the course, but we also encourage actors to bring & perform material in their own native language.
