Top Australian acting school Sydney Actors Collective now in Los Angeles and bringing it’s amazing non beginner acting course to LA. Aussie and British actors are killing it in LA and here is a chance to work with one of the best in Australia.


SAC is a school about acting. That’s it! We are about empowering actors to become better actors through an understanding of craft and also a deeper understanding of the blocks that stop actors from truly diving into a scene or character.

Sydney Actors Collective encourages actors to:

Strive for excellence but not perfection (trying for perfection just causes stress)
Play for organic in the moment experiences but not try and be right.
Experiment to find a performance that feels good and connected but not hope to impress.

Students will be given a scene prior to class from a TV show, film or stage production. They will perform the scene in class, in front of a camera for the class and tutor.  Guidance, direction and notes will be given by the tutor to help actors discover the full potential of the scene and of themselves as actors. How far can the actors go with the scene? Is there full actor commitment? Is the performance organic? What blocks are there? how intensive was the scene analysis…the list goes on. There is so much to discover in a scene that it is basically endless.

The rest of the class will watch the performance on a screen and be part of the process. Not only do students get acting training by  getting in front of the camera but also by watching their peers on a screen.

At the end of the class, students will be given a new scene to prepare for the following week or if there is still room for exploration and discovery, they will bring back the scene next week. If students have a particular scene they would like to work on they are welcome to bring it into class. Students are welcome to bring in an audition scene to class to work on. Each student will then be given a copy of their work on USB to take home on the night and watch their work. They can monitor their progress and see how far their acting training is taking them. THIS CLASS IS AIMED AT NON BEGINNER ACTORS.

Sydney Actors Collective adopts a freedom to fail approach. Failure is not a dirty word here. It is encouraged. As the Australian’s say “just have a go mate!”. Failure is a necessary word for success. Without the fear of failure actors are free to let their own instants drive the performance and deliver truly unique, uninhibited, freeing performances.
