“This program meant everything to me, they welcomed me with open arms and taught me how to know who I am as a person. I wouldn’t be where I am today without New Image. I was taught by teachers that work in the Industry themselves this is priceless. NIC got me an agent and I booked a TV series lead 4 months after finishing school. DREAM’s really do come true, always follow your dream and don’t be afraid to go for it.”

“To reach a dream it takes hard work, dedication and a fearlessness to undertake a path that everyone else finds too difficult. Once you get there you will be sore, battered and bruised. However, you’ll be among the few that can say they truly do something they love.”

Courses included in this program and hours

Text Analysis – 12 Hours

In life, we speak with the intention. Text analysis will teach you how to uncover the meaning behind the written word, focusing on how to be specific with your character’s intentions, and how to bring reality into the fictitious worlds that we create as artists.

Movement, Voice & Speech – 20 Hours

The Hero moves, speaks and acts differently than the Villain. This module will teach you how to embody the physical and vocal demands of the character. You will develop an awareness and sense of relaxation, encouraging you take bold chances with your characterization. For a character to become alive, you have to fearlessly free them from the page.

Scene Study – 32 Hours

Scene study is an ongoing process that should never stop. You will study and perform iconic scenes, while applying all the techniques you learned thus far. We will teach you how to transform your living and breathing characters into three-dimensional human beings through tactics, objectives and scene-partner work.

Improvisation – 16 Hours

Actors gain an experiential understanding of improvisational acting and develop a strong improvisational perspective essential to scripted work. Through theatre games and by improvising scenes, actors develop tools to make them more trusting of their own impulses and more generous with their fellow actors. They learn to always go for active choices to play at the top of their intelligence and at the service of the scene. Actors also experience that the best comedy comes out of listening and responding honestly, not “going for jokes”.
