Acting is like any skill or profession – you need training to be a good actor.

If you’re not able to study acting in person – because of where you live, your circumstances, or situations like the current pandemic, there are still ways you can train online and keep your acting skills sharp.

You need to understand the language and protocols on set, and how to listen to a director. You need to know how to break down a script, and develop a character. You need to understand different acting techniques, such as the Meisner technique, emotional memory, the Stanislavski method. These are skills you can learn online.

You should find a good online school that will give you individual feedback on your work, that offers a variety of training, live video workshops, challenges and resources and a supportive community. Find a school where the teachers are actual working actors, directors, and casting agents. So if you’re stuck at home, not based in London or just want to learn online, The Actors Gym is for you.

Acting is like any skill or profession – you need training to be a good actor. You need time in front of a camera, you need to learn how to work with other actors. You need to understand the language and protocols on set, and how to listen to a director. You need to know how to break down a script, and develop a character. You need to understand different acting techniques, such as the Meisner technique, emotional memory, the Stanislavski method. You need headshots, a showreel and an agent.
You should find a good school that will give practical, real-world training in acting, not just theory. Find a school where the teachers are actual working actors, directors, and casting agents. A good acting school will regularly record and edit your performances so you can see how you perform on camera and you can learn to understand continuity and framing. And a good school will support you in your career, helping you network with other actors and people in the industry.
