When it comes to cinema and television, the role that most often comes to mind is that of an actor. Acting in the world of audio-visual production, however, is different from acting in the theatre. We must not only deal with an audience but with a whole series of departments that literally go around the actor. A good actor must know how to move, fight, sing, dance, and show that he knows how to put himself in the shoes of any character. The more skills one has, the greater the chances of being chosen for a certain role. Needless to say, knowing how to sell, or present is a fundamental skill for overcoming selection when a cast is formed.

Course characteristics

This is a two-year course with compulsory attendance, five days a week, from three to four hours per day, for a total of about 500 hours a year, and consists of three types of lesson: interdisciplinary subjects, institutional subjects, and interdisciplinary labs. The course is compulsory and students are required to work during the two-year period from Monday to Friday in one or two daily shifts and on some weekends for each two-month period, starting from the theoretical study of the concepts to get to the practice on RFA sets and on external sets during educational productions....
