Video conferencing recommendations.

Earphones and Microphones.

If at all possible, whether you are watching from a mobile device, computer, lap-top or iPad, it will be easier for you to concentrate with earphones and if you do have an external microphone you can use, this will enable more clarity when you speak during the video conferencing  however this is not essential as most devices have a decent microphone.

Your Room.

The room you choose to use at home should be quiet and away from others. It is also recommended that if you do have others in your household, let them know you are in a meeting whilst asking for quietness

during lesson time. Additionally let them know you will be taking frequent breaks if they need you at any time.


As lessons will  be the usual length of 5 hours with regular reflective breaks, it will be important to have a comfortable chair at home whilst attending the lesson on line, a pillow maybe helpful when sitton on your chair.


Whether you are interacting through a computer, iPad, mobile or laptop, please ensure it is at eye level as described on the NHS link below, this will help you concentrate and be more comfortable when learning with the benefits of best posturing under your own health and safety at home.

Drinks & Food.

Of course in your own home, you can eat and drink as much as you like when in the virtual reality classroom, all we ask is you MUTE your microphone when eating and be mindful of your hot drinks.

"Creating Future Memories Together"

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 performances from scripted scenes given in advance.

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 Acting 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 (1 free show reel scene) or 4  lessons per month (3 free show reel scenes) after your 12 months period.

This is what you will normally see when clicking on the class room link that is sent for each day for the on-line class. 

The first time you see this, you will need to click the download & run zoom link. 

You will only need to do this once and then the next time you just click on open zoom meetings.
