    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you're interested in acting, this course really shows you the different types of acting techniques and helps you understand how you can further develop your acting, which will make you a better actor

    Course highlights:

    Playing George from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolfe? I put in a lot of effort by watching Richard Burton's performance and drawing some inspiration for it by, like Richard, making the character a complete weakling. This helped me learn how to develop a character and how actors can draw from other actors' performances without doing the exact same performance beat by beat.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Just listen to the teacher and you will be a better actor fro it
