Advanced acting student Alex Cooke has landed his first acting role in a US feature film. Alex has been one of our most committed acting students training consistently for the last two and a half years. By doing so he has not only been represented by one of Australia’s top agencies but also being put forward to audition for many exciting new roles. Alex is a great example and inspiration to many aspiring actors displaying that when you put in the hard work it will eventually come back to you. Alex started training at Brave Studios as a beginner acting student showing strong signs of talent very early in his training. He came to us at age 19 and we were all very inspired and impressed with his dedication and commitment to the craft of acting. He was an acting student with a plan. An acting plan that is now only 2.5 years later coming into a reality. What were you doing at age 19? Alex was working as a tradesman and basically funding his tuition to become the fine solid and extremely talented actor he is today. Watch this space everyone. We think Alex Cooke is on his way to becoming a fine professional actor. Alex just finished the Advanced training program at Brave Studios where he performed 2 wonderful scenes to industry professionals including agents and casting directors. Here at Brave Studios we are all very proud of Alex and look forward to seeing him and his acting talents on our screens more often in the near future.
There are very few classes available in Melbourne that allow semi-professional to advanced level actors to explore scenework in depth. The Advanced Actor Training ground allows actors to do this whilst in the company of other actors at the same level. As professional actors, we know that it is so important for actors maintain their skills through scene work and scene exploration with other actors, this helps the actor to touch on aspects of the scenes that they may not have considered and to integrate and process direction. This is one of the best ways that an actor can train in preparation for acting work in their professional life.
To make sure that all actors are of similar standard, students who wish to join the class for an 8 week term of scene work are asked to contact us to audition for a place in the course. Auditions are open to those who have had previous training and/ or experience equivalent to competency in the Beginner Acting Training ground and who understand the fundamental acting concepts of scene work.
