Work Experience

Time to get your hands dirty…

Industry Related Work Experience

Students enrolled at The Actors Workshop are required to complete a work experience program as part of their assessment. This program requires students to apply their skills in external environments including auditions for film and television, and participation in role play scenarios for external organisations. Auditions can include television commercial work, professional role-plays, tertiary or independent film and television projects.  Students also are cast in directing workshops where professional directors are training tomorrow’s filmmakers.

Role play scenarios may include: terrorists/criminals for crisis response training, disaster victims in a state of panic, distraught victims working with trainee counsellors, criminally accused being briefed by lawyers, relationship breakdowns during a mediation process, anxious family members faced with devastating news from health services, shell shocked accident victims preparing trainee paramedics for the job ahead of them, and many, many more…
