ACT 2 CAM is a Drama School which specialises in Film and TV Acting. We run drama classes, drama courses and summer camps in acting and film making.

We are a new kind of drama school, dedicated to screen actor training and giving young people acting experience in film and TV. More young people make films with us than any other drama school.

We offer unbeatable training and work experience in film, for actors, directors, camera and sound operators, and writers.

Unlike other drama schools, we operate as a professional film company. Our drama classes do not just teach acting, we teach young people to create, script and star in their own films. We produce several independent films each year, with cast and crew of young people from 8 to 18 years old.

We deliver complete work experience in acting and film making, with young people in charge of the creative decision-making process. Students learn, and are involved in, every aspect of film–making—from generating ideas through devising and scripting, acting, shooting and producing. Our students can specialise either on–screen or behind–the–camera.

We have Drama schools across the North East in Durham, Harrogate, Middlesbrough, Morpeth, Newcastle, Tynemouth and York.

ACT 2 CAM is a film company and screen acting school.

We specialise in Film and Television work. We offer courses in screen acting, which have been devised and delivered by industry and education specialists.

We provide realistic employment experience designed to maximise members'
learning and enjoyment while maintaining high professional standards.

Young actors benefit from the expertise of our professionals in the Film & TV industry, as well as the specialist skills of experienced actor trainers.

The project will also help young actors generate material for their showreel.

We run weekly screen acting sessions in which members devise a feature film. At the end of the rehearsal period the product is filmed on-location by a professional director and film crew. The high quality film is then be premiered locally.

We also offer other resources to help prepare young actors for the incredibly competitive world of film and television. For a comprehensive list of services, please log on to our website at

Each Term's intake, or Company, will be be divided into subgroups, or Casts of around 20.

Each Cast will then rehearse, led by their own Mentor, devising their own unscripted drama for the film, while developing skills, knowledge and understanding in the craft of screen acting.

At the end of the rehearsal period, each Cast will join a Director and film Crew for a whole day's Shoot to record their unscripted films. The film then takes about a month to edit, before it is premiered at a local venue.
