The travel time on the shuttle service from the station to the studios is approximately 10 minutes. Please note that the Pinewood Shuttle service operates on weekdays only, and you can find the current bus timetable on the Pinewood Studios official website.

Where will we film on location?

Our courses and showreel packages frequently involve on-location filming. The specific locations may vary based on the season and availability. Typically, these locations are within a 5-mile radius of Pinewood Studios to minimise travel time.  We will make arrangements during your course to ensure a smooth experience.

Can I get a certificate?

Upon successfully completing our Masterclass in Screen Acting and 1 Year Shot to Be Seen Course, students will receive a certificate. For other courses, certificates are not automatically provided but can be arranged upon request through info@actorsstudio.co.uk

What should I wear for training?

We recommend wearing cool and comfortable clothing to allow for unrestricted participation during our courses. If you’re involved in filming a showreel as part of your chosen course, specific costume requirements will be communicated to you.

Do I need an acting CV to attend your courses?

Upon booking, we kindly ask for a copy of your acting CV and headshot. This allows us to tailor our training to your needs and understand your acting background before your arrival. If you don’t possess an acting CV and headshot, please email us a brief biography along with a recent clear photo of yourself to info@actorsstudio.co.uk

I’m over 50, am I too old for your courses and workshops?

Certainly not! Our courses and workshops cater to a diverse age range, and we welcome participants of all ages. Our classes typically feature a varied group of individuals, and we take pride in the diversity of our student body. We accept students from 17 years +.

What is the required English proficiency level?

All our courses and workshops are conducted in English. A proficiency level of English IELTS 5.5 or its equivalent is required.

How can I determine if a course/workshop is suitable for my experience level?

Each course webpage will specify the intended level of participants, providing clarity on its suitability for your experience level.

Is accommodation provided for the duration of my course?

Accommodation is not included in our courses. However, we can offer guidance on suitable nearby locations based on recommendations from previous students, often found through platforms like Airbnb. We suggest considering accommodations close to transportation hubs such as Uxbridge, Slough, Gerrard’s Cross, and West Ruislip train stations, enabling easy access to the Pinewood Studios free shuttle bus service if you are not driving. 

Is it possible to observe a course or workshop before making a booking?

Unfortunately, we do not allow observers for our courses and workshops. However, we recommend joining our 1 Day Screen Acting Taster Workshop or short online workshops as an alternative, providing valuable insights into our offerings. For any specific questions or additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact our Actors Studio team. 

Can I drop in on another course if I miss a session?

Regrettably, we do not permit students to attend classes as makeup sessions for missed ones. This policy is in place to avoid disruptions for other students  and tutors during ongoing classes. Additionally, our tutors prefer to customise their sessions based on each group of students, making it unlikely that the content covered will align precisely with your original class.

Are scripts provided, or do I need to bring my own?

Rest assured, all the necessary scripts for your course/workshop will be provided by us.

Are your training venues accessible?

It is important to note that only some of our training venues have full accessibility. If you have any uncertainties or specific accessibility concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us for clarification.

Will I get a Qualification?

Our courses and workshops do not offer a formal qualify qualification.  Instead, our focus is on providing you with the opportunity to receive top quality training from current Leading Industry Creatives.

I want to book a course/workshop but there are no dates listed or it says it is ‘sold out’.

We regularly update our course programme with new dates throughout the year. If you don’t see any listed dates, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be delighted to assist you in finding suitable options. We limit class sizes to maximise your learning experience. If space is unavailable, you can be added to a waiting list, and we’ll notify you promptly if a spot opens up. Under certain conditions, it might be possible to accommodate an additional individual. However, this is contingent upon the venue’s capacity and the nature of the class.

Can you help me get an agent?

Whilst we can’t directly assist you in securing an agent, we can offer some guidance on the steps you can take.

Frequently, we receive direct inquiries from productions seeking to hire actors. In such cases, we consistently recommend actors who have received training at Actors Studio and are well-prepared for the demands of the industry.

Remember that securing representation can take time, and it’s essential to be patient and persistent. It’s also beneficial to continue honing your craft, building your resume, and staying active in the industry.

This is a brilliant course - so much content taught by amazing experienced tutors who are still working in the world of TV and Film.

To do a course in Pinewood is lovely and the week filming the bespoke showreels was a brilliant finale. Highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to work in TV and film.

A galvanizing month of thorough Screen training ranging from acting techniques to technical terms. Having over 20 years of experience in the business I wanted an intense course to brush up my screen skills post-pandemic and that is exactly what I got.

Plus it is run by a very lovely bunch of creatives who tailor make the experience to nurture the best out of individuals.

The screen actors course gave me the tools, knowledge and skills to be able to apply myself to acting for screen. It was intense, hard work and seriously fulfilling.

I feel even more confident and prepared to take on the industry armed with acting toolkit. Thank you Actors Studio. Highly recommended!

I did the month long Screen Acting Masterclass at Pinewood Studios. It was one of the best things I have ever done and I’m so glad I chose to do it! Every coach and member of crew was so professional and so kind and fun at the same time. I have gained invaluable knowledge and connections as well as friends!

I would recommend to anyone looking to start transitioning into screen acting and even if you’ve got experience!

The Masterclass in Screen Acting at Pinewood was an absolute honour to study. The course itself is brilliantly structured over four weeks. It's designed to open your eyes to the technical and emotional aspects of acting for screen, that up to this point, I have was not aware of at all.

The crew are absolutely fantastic and really make the course what it is - from talented and inspiring teachers, directors, scriptwriters, 1st ADs, camera crew, lighting and sound technicians - they're all inspiring in their own way.

Truly the best screen acting training experience. The masterclass in screen acting has taught me wonders about the industry from technicalities to the artistry to how to build yourself in the business.

This course had really challenged me every day, feeling tired as I got home and learning scripts everyday. The bar was set to high standards which really pushed me to come out as a much better actor.

The 4-week Masterclass at Actors Studio was a life changing experience! The Actors Studio team is wonderful and an honor to work with. This is a high quality training with great course content, inspiring teachers, a fantastic crew and amazing people in a creative environment.

The course itself is challenging but very informative, encouraging and fun! I can highly recommend the Masterclass and I will definitely come back to do another course soon - Thank you!

Almost every single day on the course, could be split into its own individual workshop. Working with different professionals in the field on so many different elements of the industry, the scope covered in 20 days is exhaustive - in a good way.

This is certainly no walk in the park, you will be pushed in mentally and emotionally novel ways, ways not provoked before. You will surprise yourself!

Covering the course in detail would require an essay. To put it shortly, if you have the time, money and curiosity, then go for it.

In one word EXCELLENT! At Actors studio, I did one week with Tim Kent, one week with Paulette Randall and one month Masterclass. One better than the other!

Tim was great, I've learned a lot from him. Paulette's exceptional energy is just the best thing when you're filming. And the Masterclass was amazing! Each time I did an Actors studio course, everything went so smooth.

The filming crew is super professional and talented, but also kind, supportive and funny. Each member of Actors studio team is friendly and positive.
