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!
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!
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!!
I have watched Cooper Screen Academy grow over the years and have been so impressed by the commitment of Sara and her team. They have been very encouraging and supportive of my daughter who has pushed through her comfort zone which has enable her to accept roles in opportunities as a direct result of Sara's fantastic network in the industry. I highly recommend this wonderful Academy for anyone who wants to learn and grow in this industry.
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!
Cooper Screen Academy has taken my skills and ambition as an actor to the next level. I went from waiting and wishing to being in control of my career. If you want to take the next step in Tasmania, then this is the way!
I was so nervous and unsure of myself before attending CSA. I had no idea if I could even act, all I knew is that I wanted to. Maeve and Sara have helped me turn that passion into a skill set and after a whole term of their constant support and direction, I have gained so much, learnt more than I even knew I needed to and I have had the time of my life doing it.
