As an actor, you are a highly versatile and authentic storyteller who understands the importance of a meaningful connection with your audience and the value of creating your own opportunities for success in the entertainment industry.Toronto – sometimes called Hollywood North – and the surrounding region known as “The Golden Horseshoe” ranks third in film and television production in North America and ranks second as an exporter of television programming in North America. Our focus continues to be superior actor training with courses in voice, speech, movement, scene study and auditioning for film and television. We are also one of the few Canadian post-secondary institutions that offer direct instruction in The Meisner Technique, one of the foremost acting techniques taught today. But in light of the changing nature of the industry you will also study film editing, screenwriting, stunt training, voiceover acting, self-marketing and acting with technology (eg. Green Screen), with an emphasis on creating your own work.
