Thank you Sara, Danni and everyone else involved for all that you do for my daughter, Petra, at Cooper Screen Academy! She has not only learned many new skills but also loves every minute of the experiences. Petra has grown from a reserved girl who, at the beginning of the year, suffered from crippling stage fright, to one who was recently confident enough to accept the challenge of the female lead in a short film. Cooper Screen Academy is AWESOME!
The Tasmanian Film industry is growing, and we need more local actors with screen experience. Sara Cooper is a very fine actor with a deep passion for and understanding of her craft. Her teaching reflects this and Cooper Screen Academy's classes are the perfect tool for Tasmanian talent to gain the skills imperative for working on set.
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!!
Fun, to the point, and nurturing. CSA is a great place to grow and improve your technique as an actor. It's all stepping stones and CSA has them, I was lucky enough to audition for the latest Blue Rocket production, a big notch on my ladder thanks to CSA!
You'd think, being over 60, that I'd stick out like a sore thumb among the young adults at CSA: but never once did I feel out of place. Sara has the ability to make everyone feel welcome, provides opportunities for all ages to get involved, and is constant in encouragement and enthusiasm. Does that sound over the top? Nope - inspiring. #Iwanttobelikeher
These guys are awesome. Whether you want to make it as a star on the screen or just boost your confidence. Every lesson is fun & informative. I recommend it for everyone!
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.
It's just the best...! CSA has been the perfect outlet for my 8 year old to embrace his creative side and excentric ways. The teachers are brilliant, and I hope to put all my three kids through CSA to develop their confidence, public speaking skills etc. We are so glad we found Sara and co at CSA last year!
As a parent, I've seen glimmers of confidence from my little one, but it's Sara and her incredible team at CSA who have enabled her to break down the walls of self consciousness and really shine. After her first class, she walked away exclaiming how at home she felt and ensured that I had booked her in for the whole year. It's about acting yes. But it's also about life skills.
