CHECK IT OUT

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!

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

Even just the introduction workshop was worth 5 stars, I learned so much just in those 3 hours and it was a great experience! I recommend it to people who are looking to try new things and see what they look like on camera!

Naomi Jackson – CSA student

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.

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.

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

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

Thanks to CSA I have studied and performed in L.A., Chicago and Florida, signed with a Sydney agent, am auditioning for major film and TV roles and have landed a role in a U.S. production

Rob Manion – CSA student

Having been a student myself and this weekend used students from CSA in a film shoot I strongly recommend this training. If you are interested in this industry the knowledge you learn from Cooper Screen is vital and it makes for some very professional talent!!
