Nicholas Hope, who played the lead role in cult Australian classic Bad Boy Bubby, is among the talent available to students at a new acting academy launching in Sydney.
Hope will be joined by Kevin Jackson (The American Conservatory), Bill Pepper (dialogue coach to four Oscar winners) and choreographer Julia Cotton at the International Screen Academy based in Sydney’s Waterloo.
The course will include training in screen and broadcast media – including acting for TV, film, animation, voice-over, gaming, high-end effects, 3D and green screen. The syllabus will also include visits from industry figures in health, law, business, finance, technology, marketing and PR.
The school’s creative director Tony Barclay said in a press release: “Achieving cut-through in such a competitive industry cannot be left to luck. ISA’s main goal is to produce great screen actors who are ready to work from day one across all media.”
“To ensure this, we look outside of the traditional acting syllabus. By exposing our students to world class technology and the best talent and advice Australia has to offer – ISA students will graduate with a thorough, intimate and above all, well-rounded understanding of the commercial industry,” he said.
The closing date for applications to ISA is Friday 23 November.
