The Raindance Level 5 HND programmes allow you to progress onto our BA Hon’s top-up Degree in Film and Performing Arts Practices, validated by DeMontfort University.
This is a full-time University level course for those who wish to pursue a career in acting for screen and/or filmmaking with focus on performance and character development. Students will build a foundation in all pathways related to creating visual content.
The Raindance HNDs in Filmmaking or Acting and Filmmaking will explore certain key theories to underpin and aid performance technique, but the emphasis will always be on putting the theory into practice, through practical exercises. These will include performances of scenes and filmed extracts, leading to the production of short films and showcases.
Students will build a foundation in all key concepts of acting such as Improvisation, Meisner’s, and Stanislavski’s systems, and will learn key skills in filmmaking such as screenwriting, directing and producing. More details on the techniques taught can be found in the FAQs below.
