Ana Kokkinos (Director) Masterclass

Masterclass 2 days

This workshop gives you the unique and exclusive opportunity to work with Ana Kokkinos, one of Australia’s most acclaimed Film Directors, Ana Kokkinos.

Over the last twenty years Ana has firmly established herself as one of our most innovative and creative filmmakers. With titles such as ‘Only the Brave’, ‘Head On’  and ‘Blessed’ to her name, Ana has firmly stamped her mark on the Australian filmmaking landscape. Her television credits have garnered her widespread acclaim from actors for her process and eye for detail, something which is sadly lacking in today’s industry.

Ana as an incredibly in-demand director due to her attention to detail and her own specific method of working with actors. She is working constantly, most recently working on The Hunting with Asher Keddie, Pamela Rabe and Richard Roxburgh among others.

With so many actors wanting to work with Ana Kokkinos, Brave Studios has created an opportunity for Professional actors to experience Ana’s methods and process.

We are pleased to offer this unique and exclusive opportunity for professional actors to be guided by Ana and learn her unique process for bringing a script to life; a process which can be transferred and used with any script from audition through to performance. With a maximum of only twelve participants, this is an acting masterclass not to be missed.

DAY 1 will be focused on script analysis and scene work using Ana’s unique process.
DAY 2 will be focused on applying Ana’s process to further scene work and filming your allocated scene in the studio. All participants will receive a course breakdown once confirmed in the workshop.

Ana Kokkinos is all for bringing out the writers intention. Over the 2 days, students are reminded of how important script analysis is in order to embrace the story and character fully.

What previous participants are saying:

“I loved Ana’s practical guidance on script analysis. The scene choices were all challenging and very engaging. Nothing was rushed. There was a lot of attention paid to each and every student. The opportunity to film scenes 3 or 4 times under Ana’s direction was wonderful. Everyone was given honest feedback in a very nurturing environment.” ~ Marg Downey, Actor
