FILM VENTURE LONDON is a production company and training facility in London. Drawing on years of combined experience we have designed practical workshops for actors, directors and writers in the film and television industries in the Greater London area, and in Dublin.

We specialise in intensive one to one tuition sessions for film, which differ from those you will find elsewhere as you learn what is required by a working director on a set. Our emphasis is on the practical application of techniques so we do a lot of on camera work and you will be paired with a professional actor for scene work.

We are based in Twickenham, London but travel quarterly to Dublin. Our group classes promise to inform and educate in a comfortable and inclusive atmosphere. We cater to the needs of artists at all levels, from beginners to the highly experienced.

We also offer expert Showreel Shooting services for successfully selected candidates in London based on exclusive one to one training sessions, plus Showreel Editing for actors. Please browse the tabs above to learn more about our services or check the current course listings below.

"What Graham brings to any class he teaches is a comfortable & friendly atmosphere where the students feel relaxed enough to ask questions and get involved. The fact that he is actively working in the industry on such a high level means he brings a practical and up to the minute approach to his teaching. To the students this is invaluable. Graham Cantwell is at the top of his game and his understanding of character as a writer makes him an excellent Acting Coach and his active involvement in making movies today makes him a Godsend for teaching filmmakers and screen writers. I believe fully in Graham Cantwell's talents and am excited about his future."
