About us

The Unseen is a new kind of drama school for adults (18+) that is dedicated to providing the highest level of training, developing acting tools with a very individual approach and creating real opportunities for talent to access the industry. With our focus on nurturing fresh voices and encouraging diverse talent, we are partnered with some of the biggest agencies in both the UK and US.

The proof is in the pudding and with a growing number of our students winning major roles in both television and film for the major streaming services and studios while many continuing to be represented by our management division, we believe this defines us as a school dedicated to excellence and opportunity while remaining affordable to everyone.

Our Vision

At The Unseen our mission is to bring out the most natural, truthful and intriguing performances from our students. Focusing on helping our actors to develop their 'unique thumbprint'. All classes and showcase submission feedback are overseen internally.

Our acting classes combine various exercises from the most established acting techniques with fully directed sessions, self tape filming and high end masterclasses to create fully immersive experiences. We then dedicate our time to free one on one sessions via messaging platforms with all our students designed to develop pieces and bring out the best in everyone.

It is our long term goal to help our students secure powerful representation partners and add momentum to their career paths.

Showcases

With a proven track record for developing exciting talent, we have developed excellent relationships with the industry and frequently get approached directly for projects. We now hold monthly showcases in exceptional venues including Soho House, Spotlight and in Rich Mix, which running alongside our online platform broadcast our students developed pieces to casting directors, agents, producers and directors. Supported by a team of specialist tutors that enable a fluid and adaptable approach to group development. Showcase also receives external marking from guest agents and casting professionals.

Talent management and agency

In July 2016 The Unseen opened it's talent management arm through which we co-represent actors with major talent agencies in the UK, our ethos being to find the right partner for the right actor, ensuring opportunities, commitment and shared vision. In January 2018 we opened our internal agency to offer even more opportunity to emerging talent. In 2021 our agency is building whilst we continue to develop great relationships with other agencies and co-rep a number of clients.

The Team

The philosophy of making training available to everyone depends on a hugely experienced team of tutors all of who teach at other major drama schools in London, and who are supported by a host of established guest tutors including actors, agents and casting directors.

To support our tutors, our in-house course facilitation team includes:

Kimberley Robins and Oliver Moulden .

We also have an internal team specialising in showcase development and opportunity creation strategy, which includes our film festival and theatre seasons.

 

If we feel a student is at a sufficient standard and has materials to show then we are happy to recommend for spotlight membership. The minimum study for this is 6 blocks of 6 weeks.
