AACA – African Academy of Cinematic Arts: One Year Acting course designed equally for beginning actors as well as those with experience, the Academy’s acting school provides actors with intensive training in screen acting, modern on-camera acting techniques, and supporting acting classes, which contribute to the creation of a filmed performance.
Unlike other acting colleges, the emphasis at AACA School of Acting is on providing practical experience and hands-on education to our students so that not only do they develop their craft as actors, but excel at acting in front of the camera.
The course is designed with the practical hands on nature of the AACA training ethos in mind. Learners are balanced between course work of the qualification and their hands-on film acting projects.
