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.

Elise Simondson – CSA Parent

CSA is honestly the best thing to have happened to me. Acting has always been my passion and dream and I've always wanted to make a career out of it. CSA helped put my plans into action. Sara is so inspirational, her world of knowledge, experience and amazing teaching techniques motivated me, helped me believe in myself, pushed my acting to places I didnt know I could go and opened me up to a world of opportunity. Each class was so fullfilling. They are fun and motivating, and I never walked away from a class without learning something new.  I feel so much more confident in front of a camera and with my acting technique. If acting is something you are serious about then CSA is the place to be!

Abbey Rose Leed – Private and Weekly Classes student: Accepted as one of 12 actors nationwide into the Film and Television Studio International, Melbourne.

CSA helped me realise the possibilities of achieving a career in the film industry, even within Tasmania. Sara's skills and knowledge gave me the extra nudge to get me to where I am, plus connections and opportunities for the future.

Sara Moon – CSA student: Accepted into The Academy of the Science of Acting and Directing, London

If you're interested in acting or looking for a fun, interesting hobby, you should definitely try Cooper Screen Academy! Such a great experience led by a lovely, talented teacher! Sara Cooper is doing some amazing things for the Tasmanian film industry and its actors. Get involved!

Bethany Smith – Adult student

  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.
