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.

In only one term, studying at CSA has already provided amazing opportunities, like my first ever professional audition for Blue Rocket's newest international production. With brilliant teachers and great new friends, it's definitely worth the weekly road trip from Launceston.
