Program Overview

This program offers training in the full spectrum of skills needed to succeed as a screen actor, whether for film, television, online, game, or interactive mediums.

Students will learn the fundamentals of acting, camera acting, the differences between acting for tv, film, and web series, acting styles, voice, movement, improvisation, script analysis, audition technique, studio voice overs, self-taping, and the business of acting, including how to shine at an audition and useful strategies on how to succeed in a highly competitive industry. Graduating students will also have a solid understanding of the workplace 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 industry practitioners and respected professional actors.

Set simulations, screen demos, voice-over demos and our spring showcase before invited industry players provide students with unequalled opportunities to experience the world of screen acting. In addition, our students are given the chance to meet and discuss their work with some of the acting world's most recognizable faces, as well as with key industry personnel.

Dwain Murphy

"The teachers at Humber were wonderful with their ability to shape and mould young up-and-coming actors such as myself. They gave us the best tools for making a splash in the acting world."

"It’s a great program that just keeps getting better and I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in acting."

Born on the small Caribbean island of Dominica, Dwain Murphy came to Canada when he was four years old. An only child with an active imagination, he loved to perform. 

However, he was seriously bitten by the acting bug as a teen while watching Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. When a high school teacher encouraged his talent in drama class, he resolved to pursue it earnestly and began looking into college-level programs after he graduated from high school.

Dwaine decided on Acting for Film & Television at Humber because, he says, it was local and not as expensive as some of the other schools he investigated. Dwain remembers that he auditioned doing a Charlie Brown monologue rather than the customary Shakespeare or scene from a movie. Nevertheless, he was accepted.

He didn’t, however, realize then just how much his time at Humber would change his life. Since leaving, he’s built up a pretty impressive list of credits including a starring role in the full-length feature How She Move; roles in Saving God and Poor Boy’s Game; a recurring role on Degrassi: The Next Generation; Guns, a mini-series; Three Rivers; and, most recently, Ghost Whisperer.
