Short courses on film, theatre and television


This September, The Academy of Film, Theatre and Television (AFTT) will offer 5 Short Courses focused in Acting and Film. The short courses will be held at the Surry Hills campus on consecutive Thursday evenings from 6:00pm – 9:00pm for a duration of 4 - 6 weeks (depending on the course).

This new series of Short Courses has been designed to challenge and expand on the skills of aspiring actors and talented filmmakers who are hoping to explore their creative passion part-time.

AFTT has curated the following courses:
  • Audition Preparation: This Course will develop the students audition technique, for both industry and drama school auditions. Students will be taught a strong and reliable process for a successful audition, from choosing material right through to the performance.
  • Production Design: Take control of your vision! This Course provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to help manage their own film projects and gain employment in the art department and film & television industry.
  • Eric Morris Technique - Acting Instrument: This Course will teach students the principles of the Morris technique and how these are used to create the unique AFTT system of actor training.
  • AVID Media Composer: This Course is designed to take students through the Avid Media Composer; the industry standard and must-have for those serious about editing. Learning Avid will improve the student as an editor and as a story teller!
  • Screen Writing - Character Development for Film: This script writing Course will help students with character development and deepening the story. Each student will have a 10-15 page script written by the end of the Course and will understand how to bring a script to life!

AFTT is the only acting school in Sydney to teach the Eric Morris acting technique. Eric Morris is one of the most influential acting teachers in the world. He is the author of books such as; Being and Doing, Irreverent Acting and No Acting Please. Morris’s work has influenced high profile actors, including: Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp. 

Each course will be taught by one of AFTT's working industry expert tutors,
 meaning the students are not only taught by the best, they also get to absorb valuable knowledge. Amongst the tutors is Kate Hankin, a graduate of ACTT's Advanced Diploma of Stage and Screen Acting who spent time in LA training directly under Eric and Susanna Morris. Kate's colleague, Kerri Ainsworth, will be teaching the Production Design Short Course. Kerri has created and produced installations and experiential spaces for clients such as: Commonwealth Bank, Visa, Panasonic, AMP, Telstra, Qantas, Virgin and The Star Casino.
