Childrens Acting Classes for Film and TV Parts – Celebrating 30 years

Children’s Acting Classes  – Northern Film and Drama (NFD) Celebrating 30 years 1994 – 2024

Over the past three decades, our screen acting school has embarked on an extraordinary journey, marked by a legacy of remarkable films, exceptional talent, and unforgettable memories.

Since our inception, we’ve been dedicated to crafting compelling stories that resonate with audiences worldwide. From gripping dramas to heartwarming comedies, our films have left an indelible mark on the cinematic landscape. With each production, we’ve pushed the boundaries of creativity and innovation, earning accolades and recognition for our contributions to the industry.

But it’s not just about the films we’ve made—it’s also about the incredible individuals who have graced our screens. Our school has been a breeding ground for some of the most talented actors in the business, nurturing their skills and guiding them toward successful careers in film and television. From breakout stars to one or two Hollywood’s brightest talents.

Yet, beyond the glitz and glamour, it’s the moments shared within our school’s walls that truly define our journey. From the exhilaration of landing a coveted role to the camaraderie forged during late-night rehearsals, each memory is a testament to the passion and dedication of our students and staff.

As we reflect on the past thirty years, we’re filled with gratitude for the incredible experiences and opportunities that have shaped our school. And as we look toward the future, we’re committed to continuing our mission of inspiring, educating, and empowering the next generation of screen actors.

Childrens Acting – We believe 100% in “Training while Creating” and it is the core philosophy upon which all our training is based – Creating Film and TV productions for all our students to be on set and camera right from day one! As part of that philosophy we are now holding a Childrens Film and TV Acting Course to give newcomers a solid base in Film and TV techniques from which to then progress.


Any young person with or without experience who would like to be part of Film and TV Acting.


4-18 years.


Wednesday Evenings


Children’s Film and TV Acting Classes are held in Leeds “South Milford” LS25 5AR – Directions are HERE


This is a scene from Wayward High (Sweet Sam episode) the latest TV pilot from NFD (currently being filmed during 2016). It is a key part of our very unique on set training that all our actors get to be part of the internationally award winning films and TV programmes we make.


We have thought long and hard about the class and want to give the child the choice to come into either a structured course, or a more relaxed approach as we feel that different children do better in different teaching environments. They need to feel it’s the right choice for them given it’s so very different from just drama and stage acting. It requires a very special set of skills all of it’s own, in order to succeed. NFD have 30 years plus experience in the Film and TV industry plus the latest technical resources to help students see the very different approaches and skills required from being a new student or what they may have been used to previously.


Classes are held in our own purpose built film and TV studio where we can instantly play back students performances in comfort. That way students learn faster and better than anywhere else and we can maintain for students a personal friendly atmosphere that promotes remarkable progress from all our students. To maintain the small friendly classes, numbers are strictly limited.


Students don’t need any experience and can be any age from 10 – 16, they just need the dedication and determination to want to give it their best! Because our class sizes are small we can happily take students who need a more personal individual approach. Confidence building and social awareness is our speciality and all students rapidly improve often within only a few weeks.

We are truly unique in that we provide “Real World” Film and TV acting classes, audition technique, casting director visits, acting to camera, green screen techniques, acting workshops for CHILDREN who want to experience and or be part of this exciting industry. Our aim is to get STUDENTS on camera and being an actor as soon as we possibly can! We have our own purpose built STUDIO with green screen, 3D and other up to date film and TV technical facilities which we believe is one of only a very few outside of London. We are also a film and TV production company based in Leeds Because of our facilities we are able to put students in a realistic acting environment straight away something very few others can even come close to.

Licensing for CHILDREN help is available HERE
