Course info


Humber’s Acting for Film and Television diploma program covers the full spectrum of training needed to succeed as a screen actor: acting, voice, movement, improvisation and script analysis. You’ll learn what it takes to express yourself through the art and craft of screen acting, gain on-camera confidence and learn how to shine at an audition. When you graduate, you’ll have a solid understanding of the craft and industry – its history, protocols and professional standards.

Our program has one of the most comprehensive curricula in Canada and is taught by leading practitioners and respected professional actors. Workshop simulations, screen demos, voice-over demos and our spring motion picture showcase provide you with unequalled opportunities to experience the world of screen acting. As well, you’ll have the chance to discuss your work with some of the acting world’s most recognizable faces, as well as with key industry personnel.

Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:

  • Describe the structure of the film and television industry.

  • Perform to a professional standard in a range of roles recorded in a variety of media.

  • Analyze and interpret scripts, screenplays, story boards and commercial copy.

  • Summarize the different requirements and challenges of one-time versus series work.

  • Explain the characteristics and requirements of different genres such as sitcoms, daytime TV, episodic TV and film.

  • Prepare for and perform appropriately on camera for each genre.

  • Convey character to the camera with appropriate emotional depth and clarity.

  • Maintain a character’s physical and emotional continuity over the course of production.

  • Work effectively with agents, casting directors, producers, directors and film crews.

  • Respond to the improvisational demands of the media.

  • Demonstrate individual creativity and imagination within a rigorous production structure.

  • Evaluate his or her place within the entertainment industry and develop the appropriate career strategies and contacts.

  • Develop team building and communication skills and engage in exercises that encourage self understanding, peer respect and professional behaviors.
