Thank you Sara for your vision, passion and amazing energy behind Cooper Screen Academy. Also my heartfelt thank you to Danni for teaching my young son, James. He just loves your classes. James has High Functioning Autism. I believe your acting classes are helping him to read facial expressions and to interpret body language. James has been enrolled in Cooper Screen Academy for 18 months now. He has even recently been cast in his first television advertisement. WOW is all I can say!

Judith Richards – CSA Parent

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!!

Claudia Holmes – CSA student and VCA film student Graduate

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!

Greta McCarthy – Adult student

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.

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!

Abbey Rose Leed – Private and Weekly Classes student: Accepted as one of 12 actors nationwide into the Film and Television Studio International, Melbourne.

Sara has the rare ability to teach acting with the same incredible flair, skill and humour she performs with. She is perceptive and challenging but always warm. Sara was my first choice when I was hiring tutors as an artistic director.

Ryk Goddard – Radio Presenter, Actor, Comedian

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.

Zoe Allen – Adult Student

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!

Suzie Gifford – CSA Parent

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.
