Acting course with Film Director

acting course with film directorAfter a successful weekend acting course with film director, Ana Kokkinos, acting students all agree that acting training is everything. Highly skilled actors came together over the weekend to get the rare opportunity to be guided through Ana Kokkinos’s unique and insightful technique. Ana has nothing but respect for actors and what they do. Actors were reminded how crucial it is to stay in training and to work with other actors on scenes to be absolutely ready for when the next job comes in. Ana’s natural ability to find a way into each individual actors truth and capability is both inspiring and exciting. Having the chance to work with one of Australia’s leading director’s, has left all actors involved in the workshop wanting more and inspired to continue their training. Acting training is paramount to the actor who is constantly wanting to challenge themselves further and beyond to give themselves more accessibility and versatility in their work. In Australia, it is rare to get opportunities to work with industry professionals like Director Ana Kokkinos. Brave Studios has created a safe and creative Acting Studio environment for the more advanced actor to practice their craft with such industry professionals. We believe there is an abundance of talent in Australia and want to provide actors with many opportunities to work with industry Directors, voice coaches, movement trainers, casting consultants and acting teachers to keep their acting skills in practice and continue to move forward in their body of work. Keep Acting – Train constantly.
