A few years ago Bruton-based Jack Price started training actors in the Community Hall in Bruton and put on a play at the Hobhouse Theatre. The training work continued with young people at Sexey’s School and the Red Brick Building in Glastonbury and Youth Cinema was born. We screened the work young people made with Hauser and Wirth who have supported the development of the project.
Now there are two courses running in Bristol (15-26 year olds) and a couple of new ones in London and he is teaching Acting for Camera with RADA, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and Italia Conti.
Jack hasn’t haven’t run any local courses for a while because of the amount of travelling he is doing teaching for the big Drama Schools, maybe its time for another one. Send him your details if you are interested.
Meanwhile, if you are interested in the Bristol course, Youth Cinema Foundation Bristol will run at Hamilton House in Stokes Croft from September 2018. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to meet for an interview. These courses are priced to encourage students from all backgrounds to apply.
