Children’s Acting Classes for Film and TV – Children and Teenager Acting classes

NFD believe 100% in “Training while Creating”. That is the core philosophy upon which all our actor training is based.

We operate a unique two tier approach of acting opportunities on non commercial film sets, and commercial film sets. New students are trained on non commercial film sets from day one, and progress to commercial film sets as their acting abilities progress.

Once you join our unique family whether a member of the team, crew or actor you will go on a unique journey with us that is in its self a massive learning curve.
It can be a little  tough and frustrating at times because the industry is at the end of the day a commercial business; but NFD guarantees you the most exhilarating and exciting times on your personal journey every step of the way,
For actors who can stay focused you will be richly rewarded in all the films and tv projects you become involved in. NFD is very much a special family experience that everyone from actors to crew to staff very much enjoy being part of; with many of our older actors having been with us for in excess of 10 years plus. NFD is a worldwide multi award winning company for our many productions, and was founded in 1994.

We are truly unique in that we provide “Real World” Film and TV acting classes. Our aim is to get STUDENTS on camera and being an actor from day one. We have our own purpose built STUDIO with green screen, 3D and other up to date film and TV technical facilities and believe this is one of only a very few outside of London. We are also a film and TV production company based in Leeds, which means because of our facilities we are able to put students in a realistic acting environment from day one..
