Information About Martin - Bourne tutor
Media / Communication Studies
I have been a filmmaker and drama teacher for over ten years, though I began my career on the other side of the camera when, at the age of 13, I attended the Italia Conte Stage school in London and went on to appear as an actor in numerous feature films and TV programmes (including starring as The Artful Dodger in a film production of Dickens "Oliver Twist' with the late George C Scott). At the age of 23 I decided to move to the other side of the camera and, after studying at the SCA film school at the Barbican in London, began my career as a director and subsequently went on to direct my first feature film, Stingers Rule! backed by the South Kesteven District Council and filmed in Stamford, Oakham and the Lake District. With his vast experience in the world of acting in film, television and theatre I offer private tuition for preparation for auditions, shows, productions or technique in general. I also offer tuition in Film Directing, Camera, Editing, Special Effects and many other aspects of the film industry. My experience and knowledge has made me a success and more recently becoming an Award Winning Film Director with feature film Treasure Camp.
Over 20 years of teaching experience in Drama, teaching regular classes locally and private tuition by appointment. Summer workshops held at Stamford Arts Centre have been so successful and popular often taking up to 80 students at a time.
I have a very relaxed approach to teaching and I am famous for my enthusiasm and determination. I will develop your acting skills in order for you to feel confident and ready for any audition. The idea is not to think about it too much and actually become the character you are auditioning for. I am not so focused on the academic side of acting, but the pure talent and ability to evolve into the role. I can work on your technique in order for you to be able to develop your career as a professional actor.
