FilmWorx – 3 Day Green Screen Movie Making

One of Brisbane’s most exciting school holiday workshops is this 3 day film acting and creating with the magic of the green screen. There is no limitation to what can be created and the kids will be encouraged to let their imaginations run wild and explore the fullness of creative storytelling through film.

“Glitched” – The Movie

Have you ever told a story, only to be told that’s not what happened. Then someone tells you their version of the story and it’s completely different. That’s what happened to Sam and Josie. It seems that what each of them thought was a pretty straight forward event in their lives, was seen differently by just about everyone else who knew them…and some people who didn’t even know them!

So what actually happened on that crazy day? The only way to find out is to be part of the cast. With 12 characters available, places are strictly limited to be part of this fun film-making adventure. For your chance to be part of the cast, please email info@actingacademy.com.au and request a copy of the character info pack for which characters are available for you to play.

Dates: Wednesday 28 June – Friday 30 June
Times: 9am-4.30pm
Where: Mt Maria College, Mitchelton
Cost: $320

FilmWorx – “Slices of Life” The One Shot Epic

NEWSFLASH-NEWSFLASH-NEWSFLASH-NEWSFLASH

A NEW Director, a NEW Storyline, NEW Characters – NEW Opportunity, and you find out before anyone else.

Professional Director ASH WHITE is taking time out of writing the final draft of his feature film, “The Ones Left Behind” to direct our holiday Workshop with Brendan – Working Title is still SLICES OF LIFE – but the story has changed, it is now a DRAMEDY!

Set in a modern school, a group of students are working against the clock, the teacher and each other to solve a problem that impacts them all.

The characters are made up of 3 Nerds, 3 popular kids, 3 Musical Theatre Fanatics and 3 Sporting Legends.

IT WILL STILL ALL BE SHOT IN ONE SHOT. Ash directed a one shot movie for the 48 hr film festival with Jason McLaren who received a best actor nomination.

Ash is excited to work with all the cast in developing the scenes and the story line.

ALSO there will be a one shot film comp on set, over day two and three where you will have the chance to shoot a short on your phone, laptop or ipad with our guidance.

SERIOUSLY THE BEST TEEN FILM WORKSHOP WE HAVE PUT ON YET.

Also Ash will be looking for actors to use in future projects (including his next feature ) so a great opportunity as well as lots of fun.

30 Games for $30

Time for some fun, high-energy acting for teens!  One of the reasons teenagers train at the AAA, apart from our awesome group of like-minded people, is the games. When teenagers do drama, the part they tell us they love the most is the games. The way the AAA teaches games is not only are they fun, they are rich with ways to make you a better actor. Come try it out for yourself. Can we play 30 games in a 3 hour workshop? It’s up to you to help make it happen.
