EICAR Paris France film school planning your arrival

These intensive one week and three week acting workshops are designed to give students a dynamic introduction to the craft of acting in cinema and in in the case of the three week option, in live performance as well, providing both a rare, real short film experience for a possible show reel and professor feedback throughout the process.

Exercises, small lectures and a short production period form the pedagogy of the workshops wherein every student is initiated to training techniques firstly, and then given the real time experience of acting in a film production. The experience is developed further in the three week option with the addition of theatrical training and several more opportunities to work on multiple roles in the short film production period in conjunction with the concurrent film workshops.
