Cooper Screen Academy is an award winning Hobart based business which provided fun and informative acting training for kids to adults from 2010-2021. Our popular acting classes and workshops helped Tasmanians develop crucial self confidence, awareness, and communication skills, as well as providing essential industry tips and know how - with hundreds cast in film and TV!
Our CSA Listings saw our students cast in TV commercials, short films and network shows including Rosehaven, The Kettering Incident, The Gloaming and Deadloch, plus auditioning for roles in Pirates of the Caribbean,  Home and Away,  Neighbours, Wentworth, Ninjago, X-Men Origins, and more. Past students have appeared in shows for ABC, STAN, AMAZON PRIME, SBS and BINGE, including lead roles in NETFLIX productions.

Since closing regular classes we have online private lessons with Academy Director, Sara Ellis Holland (formerly Cooper) available. Sara has provided private coaching and filmed successful self tests for BAFTA winning and Golden Globe nominated performers.

Cooper Screen Academy acknowledges the Muwinina people, the original custodians of nipaluna lutriwita, the land on which we live and work. We also acknowledge the present custodians, the palawa pakana people, who have continuously practiced art and culture on this island for over fifty thousand years.
