‘The Unseen is a school for everyone,’ says Arjun Rose, founder of the London-based acting academy, which he set up in 2016. Noticing a lack of on-screen representation on British TV, Rose left the world of scriptwriting (and waved goodbye to his life in Hollywood) to set up a school in the UK that would encourage more people of colour to pursue a career in film and entertainment. Through careful mentorship and training, attendees are equipped with the relevant skills and contacts needed to make it in the industry.
In November, and in partnership with Soho House, The Unseen hosted its first film festival at Electric Cinema in London’s White City. It was an opportunity for industry experts, including Robert Sheehan, Ed Skrein, Lou Llobell and Zackary Momoh, to review short films from students, which were recorded in Soho House’s content booths.
