About

The Film Practice
  • Our mission is to enable Actors, Presenters and Public Speakers to give authentic, powerfully present and highly successful on-camera performances. We believe in a whole approach to performance training and are adept at working with both new and highly experienced performers in group and private coaching sessions.
