Drama students go green with new PS62m TV facilities.

POSTGRADUATE acting students in Birmingham will now have the chance to perform alongside animated characters on Europe's largest static green screen.

Birmingham School of Acting's MA Acting course is the first to use Birmingham City University's new PS62 million TV production facilities at Parkside, meaning the school can provide greater screen time for acting students to mirror the modern challenges of an actor.

The drama school is running a free postgraduate taster day tomorrow, from 10am until 5pm, when budding actors can experience drama workshops as well as see a student performance and meet course tutors.

Head of School Stephen Simms said: "These incredible facilities mean acting students will be able to work with green screen in one of the largest and most advanced studios in Europe, using equipmenS t costing more than PS650,000."
