North Edinburgh News covers workshop at Edinburgh’s Telford College
Over 20 Students in the Edinburgh’s Telford College Performing Arts Studio Scotland (PASS) participated in a series of workshops from former Taggart star Colin McCredie and former PASS student and ex-River City regular Jenny Ryan.
Scott Johnston, Programme Area Leader at PASS who organised the workshops said: “It is great that two of Scotland’s most hard working and talented TV actors are able to come in and speak with the students.
“The workshops have been great so far and a real eye opener to the world of television. We have a group of seriously talented individuals here at PASS and we work hard to ensure they get to experience all aspects of an acting career.”
The students were given a tangible example of how TV acting works, which will set them apart from other programs since many of the students plan on pursuing TV careers.
The workshops covered subjects such as show-reels, auditions and TV script work as well as covering some of what happens behind the camera.
Edinburgh’s Telford College, provides a wide range of career related programmes to help learners progress into work or University education. Currently the college has around 17,000 students and 600 members of staff.
