The Youth Cinema Foundation launched in Bruton on Thursday 4th September. The course was massively oversubscribed. Interest in the course has come from as far a field as Bath, Chippenham and Swindon, with students even traveling from Bristol. The effort students put into auditions was impressive and, as we embark on the sessions, these young actors are leaping into 150 years of performance study, learning techniques derived from Russian born Constantin Stanislavski via the Group Theatre, and New Yorker, Sandford Meisner. The course will run until Summer 2015 and in the final months the students will feature in films created to showcase their talent. These will be screened at Hauser and Wirth, Somerset. The rehearsal space is at Sexeys School Drama Studios in Bruton, Somerset. All tutors are DBS checked.
