CHECK IT OUT

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.

Kym Jackson – Author “The Hollywood Survival Guide for Aussie Actors”, Actor: Criminal Minds, NCIS: Los Angeles

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

Sara Cooper is fully dedicated to running an excellent drama school. She puts in 110% behind the scenes, and every student matters. I enrolled my (shy) daughter a few years ago to boost her confidence - she is still a shy person... But last year she sang in front of the whole school; confidently played two different lead roles in two casts of her School Shakespeare play. Thank you Sara

Karin Adams – CSA Parent

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.

Emalisa White – CSA student

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!

Emily Quilty – CSA Parent

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at CSA. The classes are run by skilled team of industry professionals in a supportive, welcoming and fun environment. Develop your skills and confidence while learning about the industry. No matter what level of skill or experience you have, CSA is a fantastic place to be!

Harris Sa’ri

  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!!

Jessie Poke – Adult Student

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.

Sam Kirk – CSA student

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.
