What a year it’s been!
Until the lock-down in April – with over 30 years of continuous classes under our belt – we’d never had to close the school before.
And during these fearful times I’m happy to report that there were no health problems during Term’s 1, 3 and 4 (Term 2 was the 14 week lock-down.)
A sign I hope for the rest of the city, which seems to be slowly recovering at the moment, along with a resurgence in the Arts.
Actors are storytellers – the oldest tradition passed from person to person – and the below quote should inspire us to keep moving forward creatively in these strange and puzzling times…
Term 4, 2020 completes Week Ending Saturday December 12.
Term 1, 2021 classes return from Week Commencing Tuesday 2nd through to Saturday 6th February, 2021.
Studio Christmas Party
We’ve had some good Christmas parties over the years, but the party on Saturday November 28 was right up there with the best of them.
Unfortunately Mork the cat couldn’t make it as she had a previous engagement, but thanks again to the students and friends who did attend on the night.
We partied from 7 pm until well after 1 am. A fun and lively party and the Bloopers Reel went down a treat. Couldn’t have asked for more.
2020 Wrap Up
Despite all of the challenges we faced this year, our students have managed to confront the obstacles and prevail.
During the very dry year of 2020 for the film and television industry, we’ve managed to have success with our past and present students performing leads in feature films, critically-acclaimed television series and numerous TVC’s. All of this despite the lock-down and serious downturn in the industry. Keep up the creative standard everyone, your attitude and application to the work is a credit to you.
For me personally, a high point last week in a low point year, was the approach from Sarah Liu, the office and program assistant for Australians in Film (an L.A. -based organisation located at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood) to submit my details and become a member. This will allow me to post blogs on their online portals and access their project pitching facility in Hollywood.
January Film Acting Master Class
The teen-adult film acting master class in January is booking steadily so don’t miss out if you’re keen to participate in a challenging course. You’ll also have a short film performance to shop around if you’re so inclined.
The dates are Tuesday 12 January 7 to 9 pm (pre-production/casting/logistics) and Saturday and Sunday 16 and 17 January 10 am to 6 pm (production)
Class Scene DVDs/USBs
If you would like an edited DVD or USB of your term’s scenes then see me in class and I’ll arrange it for you. The editing fee is $50.00 for USB copies or $55.00 for a DVD (including case and 5 star logo)
Further study of your work at home quickly leads to more confident and truthful performances.
