About The Event

Covering various genres, Tim will guide you through the process of working with a script and how to make it work for the camera. In addition, actors will be led through a series of exercises to encourage emotional freedom within the group. 

Working closely with the Director, students will be given scenes suited to casting type, strength and natural performance, where they will gain an understanding of rehearsal techniques used in the industry.

For actors (advanced and beginners), performers, directors, writers and artists. 



• You will learn key questions you need to ask of any character you might play. 

• Work through a short scene provided and extract facts about the character and understand what can be built from these.

Break down the structure of the scene to understand the character’s journey.  

You will cover a scene that’s broken into units of action and work out what is happening in each unit.

Actors in pairs will then break down a scene on their own to work out the character journey.

Pairs will then apply each segment to a performance to gauge how it guides you through the scene.

The group will then summarise and understand how these techniques apply to filming.

"So much fun as well as learning and getting some good tips. Tim immediately put everyone at ease and kept a good vibe going each day. The 2 filming days were great fun, lovely crew and working with 2 directors was also good experience. I would definitely Tim Kent to anyone I know looking for experience in front of the camera and in need of showreel. I would definitely be interested in any other kinds of workshops."

"I am eternally grateful to Tim for creating courses that help you achieve so much on multi levels within a short timeframe. Superb and supportive direction from Tim Kent on Single Cam. Such a kind crew that always puts you at your ease. Tim Kent is simply a must for every actor who wants to make that transition into film and television."

"After having completed a few courses in on-screen acting, I cannot recommend the workshop I did with Tim Kent enough.
Just in a day alone, I learnt more than I had after a month elsewhere.
Tim who took the workshop was very knowledgeable and great to work with."

- Holly Etheridge

“Tim has great energy and passion for the craft - as well as lots of international experience in film-making  - and it shows.

It was great to be learning with him and also getting to understand what is expected from the actor - on bigger film-sets too. Tim’s tips and guidance was clear and very practical. All in all I feel I learned a lot and started to feel way more comfortable in front of the camera."

- Erin Lauren 

"Tim Kent is a very good director and coach. Although the niveau of the participants was diverse, the team and Tim Kent achieved a learning effect for all of us. Really looking forward for the final scenes and I would not hesitate to recommend."
