Capricorn Film Festival in partnership with Livingstone Shire Council and Regional Arts Development Fund will proudly present a four-day online Screen Acting Essentials workshop with four of Australia’s best acting tutors.

With the world still restricted to their homes, we have structured our activities for the months ahead and are excited to present our first online course, Screen Acting Essentials, held each Saturday for three hours from the 6th till the 27th of June.

The course will give participants the opportunity to learn practical screen and stage skills from leading industry tutors, all from the comfort of their homes. It will focus on working in Film and TV and is designed to demystify the actor’s process, and to accommodate the needs of both the beginner and those theatre-based actors who wish to acquire the specialist skills of the successful screen actor.

Each day will consist of specialised learnings from different tutors. Day one The Actors Essentials, a real-time, fully interactive exploration of the professional actor’s toolkit with veteran actor and coach, Philip Holder.

“I am really excited to bring my 40 years of experience and deliver an online course with new and current performers,” Philip Holder said.

Day two will consist of an actor’s introduction to film and television with Tim Ross of Wonderland, Harrow, Home and Away and Neighbours fame. Tim will give participants tips on preparing a scene for an audition, confidence building, scene work and finish off with a Q&A session.


Dianne Eden, Australia’s most respected voice coach will run Day three’s, Freeing the Natural Voice session. Dianne will put your voice through its paces in a dynamic Voice Workout, explore and extend your vocal potential and help participants find a deeper connection of your body and voice.

The final session will be held by feature film director and writer Andrew Lawrence who will provides participants with an overview of the everyday operations of a film set, thus allowing the actor to focus on their own preparation needs.

“We are excited to be offering our educational course online, aimed at both our regional community and for the first time, the rest of Australian and world. We hope this can be a part of our organisational strategy moving forward and we thank our partners for their continued support. Most importantly, it’s going to be an enjoyable time for all involved,” Capricorn Film Festival founder Luke Graham said.

The workshop will be held via ZOOM and tickets can be purchased via the festival’s website or Facebook page.

The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government and Livingstone Shire Council partnership program to support local arts and culture.
