The summer workshops at Dublin Central School of Acting are an  intensive week long workshop for 13-17 year olds.The course is specifically designed for young people with little or no experience in film-making or acting for camera – which is very different from stage acting!
They are led by Professional Casting Director Gillian Reynolds.
At DCSA, students learn the difference between stage and film acting.
It is suitable for students who want to Act for Screen, or explore the possibility of Film Directing.
If you want to be a be a director or actor – you need to know how to direct actors, and as an actor you need to know what to expect from a director. You have to learn how to work with each other – to communicate with each other and to understand their respective roles, so that the film is the best it can be – with both parties pulling together.The day is divided between instruction, followed by practicals – so all that is learnt in theory is immediately put into practice. We switch constantly from theory to “on set” demonstrations.
