“Reinvigorate or launch your screen presence”

We are proud to offer you the opportunity of working with world-renowned acting, voice and dialect coach Mel Churcher from inside your own home via Zoom. In this five day intensive screen acting course, you have the chance to proactively develop your skills working both singularly and with other actors, under the invaluable guidance and direction of Mel Churcher.

Mel has worked with Directors and Actors coaching in voice, dialect and acting on a range of International film and TV projects including:






  • Daisy Edgar-Jones (War of the Worlds)
  • Daniel Craig (Tomb Raider, I Dreamed of Africa)
  • Jet Li (Unleashed), Keira Knightley (The Hole, King Arthur)
  • Henry Cavill (The Count of Monte Cristo)
  • Sam Riley (Control)
  • Gerard Butler (Beowulf & Grendle)

A message from Mel:

“This course will make you confident with self-taping scenes, and provide you with a self-taped scene and a monologue in English that you can send out to Casting Directors or Agents. As we come out of this crisis, auditions will start up very fast, as production companies are running out of viewing material. I believe we will see a great re-bound in the industry, for which we need to be prepared.

These days, actors are expected to be very self-reliant. Most auditions start as self-tapes. And working on TV series often means engaging with multiple directors and with little or no rehearsal. This course will offer guidance, tips and exercises to enable your charisma to shine through in any role you play.”

What Happens Next?
Every participant will have individual feedback on their self tapes via email.
