StageScreen 50/50 is the only course of it's kind in Ireland. It fuses both speech and drama with acting to camera and film production for the well rounded experience. The course is creative, challenging, exciting but above all fun. Students learn to explore their creative sides in a fun and supportive environment.
In film: students will each write either a short tv commercial or short film in term one. Some tv commercials will be selected and filmed in term one, and some short films will be selected and filmed in term two. The students will get a change to act on camera or direct or work on camera or sound depending on where their specific interest is. Students also learn how films are made. In term three students take part in a script writing competition in Feis Maitiu in the Mill Theatre Dundrum, where one script will be selected from the class and performed on stage.
In theatre: students will learn the art of acting on stage. Class begins with warm ups both physical and vocal, relaxation exercises and drama games. Students then prepare for feiseanna and performances. Students take part in the feis maitiu in the Mill Theatre Dundrum, and a showcase in the Sean O'Casey Theatre. Students also have the option of auditioning for our full scale youth productions.
An optional agency service is provided and students are sent out on auditions for TV/Film/Adverts.
