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 landed featured extra roles in ABC’s “Rosehaven”, two TV commercials and speaking roles in short films and online educational videos.

“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


Through being spotted on screen at our End of Year Village Cinemas Ceremony, Deidree went on to land TV commercials, a speaking role on ABC’s Rosehaven, roles in four educational and training videos, and is now starring in a new TV series pilot! Go Deidree!

“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.”
– Deidree
