Our MANCHESTER classes are three times a week on either MONDAY, TUESDAY or THURSDAY evening at 7pm – 10pm.
The Inspire Actors Studio is a hub for actors who have already had some formal training and want to keep on top of their talent and skill. A class for trained actors should bring out the best in the actor to enable them to excel. And this is exactly what the Inspire Actors Studio does. Think of us like the Hollywood/NYC acting groups, where actors attended classes to keep sharp and develop further.
We have an official agreement with MANCHESTER FILM SCHOOL!
What does this mean?
It means Inspire’s Screen Acting Classes will have a full working, trained production crew shooting our class scenes and ensuring Actors understand the actual mechanics and principals of working on set as an actor and get practical experience doing so. Manchester Film School will also have the opportunity to cast actors who attend class in their film projects (most are paid jobs)
CAMERA DEPT (Operators, DOP’s)
AND Every other Department involved in a production.
In addition, we have access and use of over GBP750k worth of equipment.
What does it mean for Actors?
They get to sharpen their Screen Acting Skills, they are presented with a show reel quality scene EVERY MONTH as part of class fee’s.
What does a month of classes at The Inspire Actors Studio look like?
WEEK 1 – Actors are given a scene written by a professional screen writer (an original scene written especially for Inspire) they are then paired with another actor, they have 40 minutes to work on the scene. Actors then perform the scene in front of Michael Keogh and Philip Barantini who then direct the actors to enhance and tighten the performance in preparation for week 2. Actors DO NOT perform in front of any other actor in the class.
WEEK 2 – Actors have had 1 week with the scene and have returned to class “off book” and ready to shoot the scene. We have a full crew from Manchester Film School (lighting, Camera Dept, Art Dept, Script Supervisor etc etc) it is run like a professional production and actors will be run through set etiquette and all the principles and fundamentals of working as a professional actor on set. Continuity is an area that is very heavily focused on.
WEEK 3 – This week, all scenes have been graded and edited. We then watch all scenes back and discuss. Michael and Philip then give insight in to the screen acting performance and iron out any bad habits actors may have in order to enhance their performance on screen.
WEEK 4 – This is a technical week working on specific skills such as improv, audition technique, career guidance or an expert may come in and deliver.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A CERTIFICATE, THEN WE PROBABLY ARE NOT THE RIGHT CLASS FOR YOU.
There is no magic pill that will make you a better actor – it’s all down to you and the work you put in. What we give you at the Inspire Actors Studio is the opportunity to do the work, develop existing skills, acquire new ones, practice your craft and continue learning, because as actors, we never stop learning.
It’s when uncertainty and doubt creep in that confidence and self-belief can be shaken. But the many greats of the silver screen have one thing in common – complete certainty about themselves and the decisions they make about their performance. So at Inspire, we’re all about supporting and encouraging our actors.
We believe in our actors. And the first 20 minutes of each class focus on motivational coaching to enable them to really flourish in a positive, nurturing environment.
From April 2018 class fee’s will be £135 per month paid in advance on the 1st of each month. It works out at GBP11.25 per hour. We require a 3 month commitment, should actors leave prior to fulfilling the 3 months a GBP75.00 surcharge will be applied to release the show reel footage. We take into account Actors booking work and Holidays of course, the 3 month commitment is negotiable.
As the standard at Inspire is extremely high, our classes are only open to actors with experience.
WE ARE NOT FOR BEGINNERS.
WE ONLY WANT SERIOUS ACTORS WHO WILL GIVE 120% EVERY WEEK! NO TIME WASTERS PLEASE!
