Our Program

Humber’s Acting for Film and Television diploma program covers the full spectrum of training needed to succeed as a screen actor: acting, voice, movement, improvisation and script analysis. You’ll learn what it takes to express yourself through the art and craft of screen acting, gain on-camera confidence and learn how to shine at an audition. When you graduate, you’ll have a solid understanding of the craft and industry – its history, protocols, and professional standards.

No other screen-acting program in Canada can lay claim to such a comprehensive curriculum taught by leading practitioners and respected professional actors. Workshop simulations, screen demos, voice-over demos and our spring motion picture showcase provide you with unequalled opportunities to experience the world of screen acting. As well, you’ll be given the chance to meet and discuss your work with some of the acting world’s most recognizable faces, as well as with key industry personnel.

Your Career

According to the Motion Picture Association – Canada report, in 2012/2013, the total volume of film and television production was $5.82 billion, which accounted for 127,700 jobs. Film and television production generated a gross domestic product (GDP) of $7.6 billion for the Canadian economy in 2012/2013. Work increased in all areas of recorded media, including film, television, commercials (radio and TV), and industrial and corporate productions, as well as voice-overs, narration and cartoon animation. Ontario continues to be a prominent, active player in the international film and TV industries. While steady employment remains a challenge in any artistic endeavour, Ontario’s robust production climate continues to provide our graduates with opportunities to pursue a fulfilling and exciting career as a professional screen actor.
