Each week students will be gaining practical knowledge and feedback from different tutors, covering:

  • Castings & Auditions
  • Working with Directors
  • Preparing a scene
  • Understanding Text
  • Staying grounded in the industry

Guest Tutors

Each week, one of these amazing tutors will be facilitating the session. Their exceptional talent, industry knowledge and respect for the actors they engage with, is what brings them to this project.

Yure Covich
Week 1 – Yure Covich
Self-Taping From Home

Hi, My name is Yure Covich and I am the creative director at 75% Old School and acting teacher for the Teenage Screen Actors class.

My approach when teaching screen acting skills to teenagers is simple. Firstly, the health and well-being of the students are what is most important. Acting can be one of the most enriching and fulfilling crafts for young adults, but under the guidance of an inexperienced teacher, it can cause issues in growing actors. 

During the Covid Restrictions, it was a goal of mine to create a program with a selection of tutors who are not only extremely talented, but respect the artists they work with. I am so stoked to present this course for the young actors.
