North West London Independent School Post-16 pupil Miles recently attended a film acting course at Pinewood Studio’s Actors Studio.
It was an inspirational day in which Myles not only learnt a huge amount about acting in front of the camera in a professional studio, including the technicalities involved in film directing, but got to tour the Pinewood lot where they are currently building sets for the next Star Wars film. He also got to see props from Assassins Creed and the original storyboards for Tomb Raider.
Miles was set the ambitious task of having to learn a script, rehearse it in an hour and then perform it in front of the camera, camera crew and audience, and rose to the challenge brilliantly. He will receive an edited version of the scene to put toward his acting show reel.
This was another success for NWLIS’s Post-16 ‘World of Work’ program and expansion of their Creative Arts curriculum.
