The fourth year is about getting work in the industry. After a year of experimentation, the focus of the fourth year is pragmatic and oriented towards current employment and funding trends.
Students devote considerable time to creating a body of work on video, CD and for live performance to present to agents, casting agents, and employers. All graduating actors leave the Drama Centre with audition showreels. These contain monologues and duologues shot in the TV studio and on location.
In addition, all students receive individual assistance in the preparation of three live monologues, which include work by contemporary Australian playwrights, excerpts from Shakespeare, and at least one audition song.
Whenever possible, the graduating class is involved in at least one intercultural project which introduces them to the challenges and insights of cross-cultural work. In the last ten years, the Drama Centre has initiated projects with artist and students from Japan, England, Germany, Singapore, Korea, Iran, Japan, the Philippines, and China.
