APP & WEBSITE Training & FRANCHISE Workshops
DontGoToDramaSchool (DGTDS) aims to offer a practical 21st century approach to drama training. Teaching the leading-edge Hollywood acting 'Chubbuck Techniques' - as used by Brad Pitt and Jim Carrey - and utilising the latest digital technologies and Web TV broadcast platforms, as our service develops DGTDS will provide students with intensive screen-acting training, an immersive filming experience, and the chance of significant Web TV broadcast exposure to launch their careers.
A traditional drama school/University drama education is very expensive (£27,000+ over 3 years); heavily over-subscribed; and involves the student moving away from home to study for several years, often learning outdated stage acting techniques and drama theory.
Little opportunity exists for aspiring actors to access industry relevant training and develop their own unique acting style in a professional broadcast environment, and obtain the necessary exposure to launch a successful career.
Statistics show that most acting graduates give up on their acting career dreams within 6 to 12 months of leaving drama school. This is because they graduate as 'invisible actors' - no one knows of their talent.
DGTDS is determined to change things!
Taught by an experienced television professional, and offering intensive app and website based practical, cost effective drama training, students can study at an affordable price, receiving the most leading edge, industry relevant drama/acting training.

Our app and website training will allow students of all ages to study the acting techniques of the Hollywood stars in the comfort of their own homes.
Each week students will receive a training video, accompanying study notes and scripts, teaching a new acting component.
Students will need to engage in a number of practical drama exercises, and act out a number of dramatic scripts.
Some scenes will require an acting partner. Our private Facebook Group will help you source an acting partner(s) in your locality.
This training is ideal for TV drama directors wanting to fully understand how to effectively work well with actors. And scriptwriters wanting to understand how to create psychologically multifaceted characters full of story potential.
