To open the October-November newsletter some words of advice from everyone’s favourite “American Psycho”, Christian Bale, and one of our most accomplished stage and screen stars, Cate Blanchett….
Children’s Film Acting Workshop
The October workshop is fully booked and I’m looking forward to working with the course participants on the 5th, 6th and 7th of October. The kids and I have a great script to work from and it should be a lot of fun for all involved.
The next children’s film acting workshop will take place in the January school holidays.
See the Kids Holiday Film Acting Workshops page in the Classes and Courses menu for further information on the January 2017 workshop.
Book the Role Master Class
At time of writing there is only one position still available in the Book the Role intensive with award-winning actor and director Peter Phelps. The course takes place over a full Sunday on 30 October and will teach you everything you need to know about how to successfully book roles in film and TV productions.

SF3 Smart Phone Film Festival
The dynamic duo of Ali Crew and Angela Blake – founders of SF3 – capitalized on last year’s inaugural festival, thereby making SF3 2016 a resounding success. This was due in no small part to Ali and Angela’s passion for filmmaking, and their dedication to promoting emerging talent – both in front of, and behind, the camera.

Winner of the Best Actor award at SF3 2016 was Surry Hills lad Liam J Phelan who joins the Thursday advanced adult class this coming term, along with last year’s 24/7 Youth Film Festival Best Actress award winner Laura Bradford. Well done to the both of you and I look forward to working with you this term.
The Screen Actors Workshop Christmas party will be held at the school’s studios on Saturday 26 November from 7-30 pm. All students, family, friends and associates are welcome, and we hope to see as many of you on the night as possible. It’s been a very productive year and we have many successes to celebrate! Be there or be square, as the saying goes.
