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.

Lisa Clapham – CSA Parent

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.

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.

My twins, Isaac and Mitchell started 2 terms ago and are having a ball! Quite apart from 'learning the trade' they have developed confidence and are losing their fear of 'what everyone thinks'. It has been a great maturing process for them. As a mum I find dealing with Sara Cooper excellent and she has an amazing commitment to the youth. The boys have already been in a commercial and just shot their first short length film Rosedale. They are looking forward to lots more fun and learning!

If you're interested in acting or looking for a fun, interesting hobby, you should definitely try Cooper Screen Academy! Such a great experience led by a lovely, talented teacher! Sara Cooper is doing some amazing things for the Tasmanian film industry and its actors. Get involved!

Bethany Smith – Adult student

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.

Grace McCallum – Adult student

  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

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
