James Scheepers – Showreel Course Graduate Testimonial:

It’s been almost 5 months now since my last day of the Showreel Course.

It’s given me quite a lot of time to reflect on my journey at Screenwise. I was blessed enough to meet some wonderful people; learn from amazing tutors; and take away memories and friendships that will last forever.

Rhonda Fiddleton – Thank you for challenging me throughout the course. To push myself, to trust myself, and to believe in what I was capable of doing on screen. Thank you for directing my scene with Alex in the kids pool; for making it lots of fun to do, and for being so easy to work with!

Peter Mochrie – Thank you for providing me with a safe environment where I could really be vulnerable in front of the camera. Thank you for inspiring me. The five weeks in your class really helped me learn a lot about myself as an aspiring actor. I hope to work with you and learn from you again in the future.

Natasha McNamara – Thank you for being so encouraging as you helped us learn about the American accent and figure out our own. My five weeks in your class was a lot of fun!

Scott Patterson – Thank you for directing my showreel scene with Michael. I learnt a lot both in the moment of filming and upon watching the final cut of the scene. I had a really fun day filming with you and the team!

Production Crew – Thank you for making my first experience on set fun, comfortable, and memorable. You were all a pleasure to work and create with. Your knowledge and experience really shows in the final cuts of the showreel scenes; they look fantastic!

Denise – Thank you for accepting me into your school. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn about acting and being on screen. Thank you for giving my dream a chance and a kickstart. Thank you for your encouragement, guidance, and knowledge of the industry. Thank you for helping me find scenes that challenge me but also were able to show me what I was capable of producing.

Thank you all so much! I can’t wait to return in the future to continue learning the craft! I hope you all like the flowers!
