Classes return from Anzac Day April 25 and I’m looking forward to working with our established students and to meeting the new students commencing classes with us this term.
To open the May-June newsletter some words of wisdom…
Advanced Screen Performance & Technique
Bill Hughes Advanced Screen Performance & Technique master class is fully booked with a waiting list. Due to the popularity of the course we will be running the master class again – as soon as Bill is available – for those students who missed out this time around.
July Master Classes
During the winter semester break in July we will be running two film acting workshops.
Following on from the success and positive feedback from the teen/adult film acting master class in late January – which produced the very powerful short film, Cold Dinner for One – the master class will run again on Tuesday evening 4 July (pre-production: 7 to 9 pm) and then the film will be recorded over the weekend of Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July from 10 am to 6 pm.
Then next up, and slated for the second week of the July holidays – and tutored by Victoria Nicholls – is the Children’s Film Acting workshop. We’re currently working on the logistics for the kids workshop and it will either be a three day workshop or a five day workshop, depending upon the final program.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to welcome Victoria Nicholls to the teaching staff. Victoria has many years experience designing fun and practical workshops for children and we are thrilled that she has joined the school’s teaching staff.
Featured Student: 2006 graduate Aileen Beale
Since graduating from the Advanced Adult class in late 2006, Aileen has worked on a wide variety of film and television productions while performing alongside some of Australia’s best known faces.
Along with an impressive list of past credits, Aileen’s most recent credits include… 50 worder roles in Love Child and Pulse; the role of Lieutenant Crestalnin in Shame Abbess’s new feature film The Osiris Child; and then to cap it all off, Aileen is currently performing the role of Margaret Young in the new ABC TV production Friday on My Mind, which details the ups and downs of The Easybeats career in the late 1960’s. Margaret is the matriarch of the Young family, the family who produced two of Australia’s best loved and most influential rock bands, The Easybeats and AC/DC.
Aileen as you can see, is no slouch, and her proactive approach to her career has been paying serious dividends.
Well done Aileen – and keep up the great work!
Class Scene DVDs/USBs
If you would like an edited DVD or USB of your past term’s on-camera scenes then see me in class or email me and I will organize it for you.
Class scene DVDs or USBs are $50-00 per term’s scenes and are a highly beneficial means of improving your work via further home study.
