Had a brilliant day at the Introduction to Screen Acting run by Nathan Caselton. They pack in such a lot of training and it was especially impressive to be filmed in a scene on what’s effectively a taster session.

Great bunch, so much fun and the Pinewood Studios setting is epic - if the journey wasn’t so long, I’d be back every week!

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 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.

Honestly, I wish I could do it again and I hope Pinewood will do a follow-up course so I have a reason to come back, learn and walk the hallways of their campus again!

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.

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.
