What Sara has done for the Tasmanian industry is truly fantastic. We were being left behind, which is crazy as we have such wealth of raw, passionate talent. I am so proud to work with this woman and help her share Tasmania's talent with the world. Tassie’s time has come to shine.
Sara has not taught me to perform; she has taught me to breath, relax and take comfort in my own abilities. From her I have not only learnt the craft of acting, but the magic of self belief.
CSA helped me realise the possibilities of achieving a career in the film industry, even within Tasmania. Sara's skills and knowledge gave me the extra nudge to get me to where I am, plus connections and opportunities for the future.
After two weeks with Cooper Screen Academy I had an audition for an ABC TV series. For any actor, I can't recommend CSA highly enough. My mentors Sara and Maeve are professional, completely knowledgable about the industry and generally awesome people! I learn so much every week at the weekly classes. Encouraging, fun and totally worthwhile for both acting and life skills!
If you're looking to learn the ups and downs of a film set, screen acting technique and a truckload of industry know-how, then CSA is the place to be.
What an awesome family the Cooper Screen Academy is. It embodies everything you could hope for; positive, encouraging, engaging, fun and providing the expertise to develop and inspire all ages. Katie has always had an interest in drama and Sara and her proficient teachers have motivated her even more. Thank you for all the hard work you all put in, and all the benefits provided. Although I can't begin to imagine the amount of effort it takes, it is very much appreciated.
I was terrified when starting at CSA having no previous professional experience but after my first lesson I was hooked. Sara was so welcoming and makes sure the classes are extremely supportive and fun. I have thoroughly enjoyed challenging myself and developing my skills and recently got the chance to have my first ever proper audition. I cannot recommend CSA highly enough!!
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!
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.
