Ben Mathews – Film Master Class – Series 7

A 6 week film series for professional actors.

Teacher: Ben Mathews

The HubStudio is very proud to have the multi-award winning film coach Ben Mathews return for another series of the Film Master Class. Ben is a remarkable coach, accomplished film director and AWGIE nominated writer. His skill set fits perfectly into The HubStudio and our on going commitment to provide the best coaching environment for professional actors. This series is designed as a skills maintenance series, focusing on keeping every professional actor on top of their game. Come Join Us. 

This six week camera acting class is for actors who are looking for breakthroughs in their ability to be natural, spontaneous and make powerful choices in the moment, in front of the camera. You’ll become skilled in using simple techniques to quickly analyse a scene, understand what it’s about, discover ways to make the scene relatable to you and giving you a powerful access to being in the moment. You might find yourself giving performances you didn’t even know you were capable of.

  • Development of presence, spontaneity and instinct.
  • Script / Scene Analysis – how to interpret, relate and quickly understand detailed scenarios.
  • Audition Process – Mindset techniques for nerves, presence, focus and professional conduct.

When it comes to auditioning, mindset is everything. Ben will introduce you to a powerful new way to approach the process of the audition, transforming the way you think about them into something that leaves you empowered as an actor and authentically confident in the audition room.
