I was completely new to acting at the start of this year but I have found a passion that I never knew I had, thanks to the fun and supportive environment Cooper Screen Academy offers. Sara not only teaches acting skills, but also life skills like professionalism, work-ethic and passion. Tassie talent is taking off thanks to CSA, so make sure you get in on the act.
Cooper Screen Academy is finally a group taking a genuine interest in young Tasmanian actors and is providing priceless opportunities. I’m so grateful for all Sara is doing.
Sara is changing the face of acting in Tasmania. The opportunities and knowledge she is offering young performers is greater than they will appreciate for many years - until they look back and realise the incredible gift she has shared.
Thanks to CSA I have studied and performed in L.A., Chicago and Florida, signed with a Sydney agent, am auditioning for major film and TV roles and have landed a role in a U.S. production
CSA is honestly the best thing to have happened to me. Acting has always been my passion and dream and I've always wanted to make a career out of it. CSA helped put my plans into action. Sara is so inspirational, her world of knowledge, experience and amazing teaching techniques motivated me, helped me believe in myself, pushed my acting to places I didnt know I could go and opened me up to a world of opportunity. Each class was so fullfilling. They are fun and motivating, and I never walked away from a class without learning something new. I feel so much more confident in front of a camera and with my acting technique. If acting is something you are serious about then CSA is the place to be!
I was so nervous and unsure of myself before attending CSA. I had no idea if I could even act, all I knew is that I wanted to. Maeve and Sara have helped me turn that passion into a skill set and after a whole term of their constant support and direction, I have gained so much, learnt more than I even knew I needed to and I have had the time of my life doing it.
In only one term, studying at CSA has already provided amazing opportunities, like my first ever professional audition for Blue Rocket's newest international production. With brilliant teachers and great new friends, it's definitely worth the weekly road trip from Launceston.
Cooper Screen Academy has opened up a world of connections and opportunities I never would have thought possible whilst living in Tasmania. From gaining priceless screen acting experience, to learning the technical elements of shooting, to aquiring knowledge of the industry, Sara has provided us with an honest account of and real insight into the world of screen.
Having been a student myself and this weekend used students from CSA in a film shoot I strongly recommend this training. If you are interested in this industry the knowledge you learn from Cooper Screen is vital and it makes for some very professional talent!!
