When your course begins, each class date is matched with all student availability at the beginning of each month.

Each lesson has personalised filming to analyse your Directing performances with 1 to 2 trained film actors from scripted scenes given in advance which is feed through our large screen projector to watch as we film.

This is uploaded shortly after each lesson with a unique password through The Film Directors Academy website on the Masterclass page.

We aspire to have a healthy culture for learning and ask for good energy and concentration in class. 


Mobile phones are to be kept on silent/vibrate during learning time but if you are expecting an urgent call, please let your film coach know at the beginning of the day. 


When classes are being operated, there is mainly one rule to stick by which is feedback will only come from the Film Director Coach and not the classroom.

On average, you will receive 2 to 3 new skills for acting per class, there may be more on occasion however this is generally the case in relation to learning with effective demonstration from the member.

We aim to film all performances with your consent which will be uploaded to our website film hub where you can analyse your performances and discuss with your coach the next time you attend.

Your monthly premium and deposit covers your 2 lessons per month one with 1 Directors show reel scene (Part-time) or 4  lessons per month with 2 Directors show reel scenes (Full-time) within a 12 month period.
