BOP Actors Studio

18yrs – Adult Screen Acting

BOP Actors Studio Screen Acting Classes.

‘I never act. I simply bring out the real animal that’s in me.’Willem Dafoe

BOPAS  philosophy behind our adult classes is to encourage you to brave as an actor.

To dig deep into your own toolbox and to help you develop ways through various methods to find your individual truth as an actor. 

Our Acting coaches will teach you about the various acting techniques, expression, character work and development, character building and development – the mind, body, heart and voice connection, chair work, audition technique, and much more…

You will be encouraged to be bold and make interesting decisions within your character choice, deconstruct your roles to bring them back to the whole, get a strong understanding, and dive into emotional prep and how to bring an ‘imaginary circumstance into reality’

We want our actors to make interesting, scary and honest choices and to come away from these classes feeling empowered and trusting of their ability moving forward.

These classes will push and test you as an actor, and all done in a safe and supportive environment.

The good thing about these classes is that what you learn you will enable you to apply the technique to all aspects of Acting and Performance, whether it’s Film and TV, public speaking, theatre, or everyday life.

All our classes have a strong focus on the ‘reality’ of acting which pulls strongly to Film and TV, all our tutors are leading professionals in their field and our goal is to help you find your own ‘way’ in this exciting industry.
