Classes return from Tuesday January 28 and I look forward to working with all of our ongoing students again. I’d also like to welcome the new students commencing classes with us this term.
To get you in the mood for some serious screen acting here are some words of advice from one of the world’s most popular actors
JANUARY FILM ACTING MASTERCLASS
The January Film Acting masterclass produced the short film, Refugee. I had an ideal cast for the script and the course was a great success thanks to the effort and commitment of cast members Mona Bagherpour, Jozsef Kleiner, Ashwai Muo and Paul Millett.
For a series of production stills from Refugee, see Photo gallery page.
AMERICAN ACCENTS AND DIALECTS MASTERCLASS
Next up on the Masterclass Program is American Accents and Dialects. Tutored by Bill Pepper, the course runs over two consecutive Sundays from 11am to 5pm on the 2nd and 9th of March. Bill is regarded as Australia’s leading voice and accents coach, and during his illustrious career he has voice-trained four Academy Award winners.

TV SERIES ON DVD
Television seems to be the new frontier for creative talent these days, with canny production companies and series runners producing some truly awesome and groundbreaking shows. Below are some of the best of the current crop…
CLASS SCENE DVDs
If you would like an edited copy of your past term or previous terms’s work on DVD then see me in class and I’ll organise it for you. Class scene DVDs are $40 per term’s on-camera scenes or the same price for a 5 scene compilation of your favourite on-camera scenes. Class scene DVDs are an effective means of improving your performance and technique via further home study.
To wrap up the January-February newsletter, it’s been a long six week summer semester break with only a few private tuition sessions and the January Film Acting masterclass to keep the creative juices flowing, and I’m looking forward to getting back to teaching full-time again. See you all when classes return from the 28th of January.
Have a happy, healthy and successful 2014!
