The semester program at Prague Film School is the first term of the year program. Those who don’t have the time or other resources to invest in the longer format course can take the semester course as a first and substantial step in training for the screen. The course involves students in a live-and-breath film acting experience, occupying them 8 hours a day in intensive studio work – and up to 7 days a week on set!
Students in enrolled in the semester course follow foundation courses in Acting Theory (Meisner and Stanislavsky), Screen Acting, Film Production, Movement (Yoga, Dance and Stage Combat), Voice and Speech and Alternative Techniques (Improvisation and Ensemble Strategies). Students also take one elective course offered school-wide.
In addition to daily sessions in front of the camera and weekly scene work, acting for film students will participate in 3 film school student projects – involving them in up to 20 productions during the first four months.
By the end of the semester acting for film school students will have developed deep skills in acting for various shot sizes and in honing a realistic portrayal of character employing Meisner and other techniques introduced in the fall. They will have mastered a number of dances and combat moves applicable to historical and contemporary roles. They will have received training in film production itself – in lighting, camera, editing and sound. Perhaps most importantly, acting for film students will return home with substantial experience on set and with a body of work to prove it!
