This is a full-time University level course for those who wish to pursue a career in acting for screen and/or filmmaking with focus on performance and character development.   Students will build a foundation in all pathways related to creating visual content.

The Raindance HND in Acting and Filmmaking will explore certain key theories to underpin and aid performance technique, but the emphasis will always be on putting the theory into practice, through practical exercises. These will include performances of scenes and filmed extracts, leading to the production of short films and showcases.

Students will build a foundation in all key concepts of acting such as Improvisation, Meisner and Stanislavski’s system, and will learn key skills in filmmaking such as screenwriting, directing and producing. Upon successful completion and approval, students will have the opportunity to progress onto a one-year Masters programme with Raindance in their third year. Through Raindance, students will have the opportunity to attend renowned courses delivered by industry professionals and attend our networking events to develop further opportunities.

Students will also benefit from numerous opportunities to audition for, and perform in, Raindance HND and MA Films and to become familiar with the realities of acting ‘on set’. We also partner with, the largest online actor’s database in the country and we will be hosting showcase events and casting seminars, throughout the course, to help our students progress in the industry.
