OLUCHI Afurobi’s weekend acting classes reopens on the 1st of March at 10a Lanre Olumide street, Idado estate, Lekki Aja express. The CEO of Rising Phoenix Entertainment told our reporter that the special weekend classes are geared towards developing the talents in the industry, “Our acting classes help participants unlock their potentials, basically because they are short courses with intense scope. The core edge about our classes is its practical approach rather than focusing more on theory”.
Upcoming actors as well as professionals who seek to polish their skills and take their act to the next level can now access this unique package, “The class covers mainly acting for television and film I started the acting class from first teaching people to audition because I thought most people that decide they want to act just jump in without asking the question ‘how do I even interview for the job?’ Auditioning is a job interview for actors” says Oluchi.
The Met Film School (UK) graduate is a trained director and producer has created a platform that draws from quality resource professionals as class instructors and teachers. With the registration already started, the classes which officially kick starts its new session on the 1st of March has the following timetable to suit potential students appropriately; Every Fridays and Saturdays of every first weekend of the month from 9-5pm, Every Fridays and Saturdays every second weekend of the month from 9-5pm, Saturdays only on every third weekend of the month from 9-5pm and Saturdays only on every fourth weekend of the month 9-5pm.
About the objective of the training, Oluchi says the plan is to demystify acting as a whole, “make it less scary as well as letting you know that it’s a job and should be treated as one, also to help improve the quality of actor’s work. I believe you should never stop learning”. Potential students can reach the weekend school’s admin via the email, [email protected]
Oluchi is the producer of ‘In The Music’ that featured Omawunmi Magbele and other acts.
