People of any age who consider they could be cast as a Mum on screen (you don’t have to be a Mum!)

WHAT WILL WE DO?

Find your voice in these gentle and empowering workshops.  Use your individual story to find play and joy.  Increase your courage as you step in front of the camera in a highly supportive environment.  Content will include storytelling, a variety of acting technique exercises, basic script analysis and more.
Each workshop starts with a cup of tea, and ends with a debrief.

WHY ARE THESE WORKSHOPS IMPORTANT?

Set up in 2004 by Oscar winner, Geena Davis, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media has conducted many research studies on gender in media and presented their findings to the industry in order to encourage change.  Relevant findings summaries include: (2017) Female characters in film and TV motivate women to be more ambitious, more successful, and have even given them the courage to break out of abusive relationships. (2014) study of popular films across 11 countries showed 1 female visible for every 2.24 males.

HEAR FROM PAST STUDENTS

Joining CSA to improve her public speaking skills, Briony went on to land featured extra roles in ABC’s “Rosehaven”, two TV commercials and speaking roles in short films and online educational videos while attending our classes.

“I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time at CSA. With Sara and her team I’ve conquered my public speaking nerves and been able to take on new opportunities. Classes are interactive experiences where, with like-minded friends I’ve learned new skills, been challenged by myself and others, and developed numerous interpretations of physicality! Above all, after every class I’ve left feeling inspired.“
– Briony

“CSA is a great way to learn about how to succeed in life: I learn communications skills, self-reflection, how to work as part of a team – you’re never too old to hone life skills. And the camaraderie builds confidence.”
