One of the most interesting asked question is the difference between acting on a stage and acting on a film set.

Although some parts of the trainings are similar, the differences are actually various: photogenic, concentration rhythm, improvising, ability in memorizing lines, in reacting and moving rapidly while performing.

Through teachers’ detailed work we’ve developed an innovative educational program whose purpose is giving actors the appropriate abilities in the field of cinema and new media.

As a non-dogmatic program, the course offers a comprehensive education about the art of acting offering the students the right skills to approach the actor’s work both in theatre and in performing arts.

During the first year, the weekly study schedule is extremely rigorous. After a first interdisciplinary period that involves all the teaching areas of the school, lessons related to physical preparation are held every morning as follows: from 9 am to 11 am elements of acrobatics, the physical actor, fencing, from 11 to 13, vocal training: voice education, diction, singing, speech therapy. Afternoons are dedicated to the study of acting methods: the Costa method (aimed at film language and close-up), the Meisner method, acting and yoga, the Actor’s Game – an annual teaching module during which students will have to feel free and abandon any previously acquired structure, to start again a slow construction through the Game. Each week actors work in small groups and in rotation with other courses. In the last trimester the class takes part in the filming of short films.

During the second year, students continue the work on training and at the same time face a series of new acting methods. Two shows for the public are produced and students participate in the realization of short films.

The third year is dedicated to new teaching modules by teachers, directors and professionals and is aimed at the realization of filmic and performative projects. Students can participate in an educational exchange programme with international film schools and benefit from being represented by the CSC agency, the Artistic Casting Service.

During the last five years the following professors have held classes: Gianni Amelio, Furio Andreotti, Roberto Antonelli, Francesca Archibugi, Sergio Bassetti, Valeria Benedetti Michelangeli, Mirella Bordoni, Gianfranco Cabiddu, Ciro Caravano, Costanza Castracane, Marcello Cotugno, Flavio De Bernardinis, Rossella Della Valle, Massimiliano Dezi,Claudio Giovannesi, Mario Grossi, Lenore Lohmann, Jinjui Long, Daniele Luchetti, Vito Mancusi, Piero Messina, Alessandra Panelli, Gianfranco Pannone, Silvia Perelli, Eljana Popova, Eros Puglielli, Roberto Romei, Tommaso Strinati, David Warren, He Yan, Gino Ventriglia.

Giancarlo Giannini

one of the most famous italian actors, played a wide range of characters: from the factory worker to the mafia boss, from the Italian comedy to dramas lead character. He has also worked on tv, as a brilliant actor (sometimes in team with Mina), singer and dancer. Over the course of his successful career, Giannini worked with many great Italian directors, such as Luchino Visconti (‘L’innocente’, 1976), Sergio Corbucci (‘Il bestione’, 1974; ‘Bello mio’, ‘Bellezza mia’, 1982), Mario Monicelli (‘Viaggio con Anita’, 1979; ‘I Picari’, 1988; ‘Il male oscuro’, 1990), Dino Risi (‘Sessomatto’, 1973 and the TV production ‘Vita coi figli’, 1990), Alberto Lattuada (‘Sono stato io!’, 1973), Nanni Loy (‘Mi manda Picone’, 1984, David di Donatello for best actor), Tinto Brass (‘Snack Bar Budapest’, 1988), Franco Brusati (‘Lo zio indegno’, 1989). He dubbed several great international stars, like Al Pacino (Giannini and Amendola have been the famous actor’s official voice for years), Jack Nicholson, Michael Douglas, Gérard Depardieu, Jeremy Irons, Dustin Hoffman (in ‘Marathon Man’), Ian McKellen (in ‘Richard III’), Ryan O’Neal (in ‘Barry Lyndon’) e Leonard Whiting (in ‘Romeo and Juliet’). He was awarded with prestigious prizes both in Italy (David di Donatello and Nastro d’Argento) and abroad (Cannes Film Festival).
