CHECK IT OUT

Cooper Screen Academy is finally a group taking a genuine interest in young Tasmanian actors and is providing priceless opportunities.  I’m so grateful for all Sara is doing.

Georgia Blizzard – 2010 CSA student. Accepted into NIDA at 17yrs.

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

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!

Elizabeth Horne – CSA Parent

Cooper Screen Academy is so very valuable and beneficial for young budding actors. Sara is an incredible role model and with her experience and contacts is doing the crucial job of training and connecting Hobart to the rest of the Australian industry. I wish I had this opportunity before I left for NIDA.

Brett Rogers – 2009 NIDA Graduate

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

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

Any budding young actors holding back and waiting for something to happen ? Why don't you take your career and passion into your own hands or the hands of the wonderful Sara Cooper and Cooper Screen Academy! Honestly the best acting course I have ever done ! Sara is an amazing teacher with so much knowledge of the industry and screen acting. Not only that, but she is helping put Tasmanian actors on the Australian film and television map.

Sophie Chandler – CSA student

As a parent, I've seen glimmers of confidence from my little one, but it's Sara and her incredible team at CSA who have enabled her to break down the walls of self consciousness and really shine. After her first class, she walked away exclaiming how at home she felt and ensured that I had booked her in for the whole year.  It's about acting yes. But it's also about life skills.

Jess Outram – CSA Parent

It's just the best...! CSA has been the perfect outlet for my 8 year old to embrace his creative side and excentric ways. The teachers are brilliant, and I hope to put all my three kids through CSA to develop their confidence, public speaking skills etc. We are so glad we found Sara and co at CSA last year!
