Working with Screenwise

Benchmark Creative Management

The instructors at Screenwise are not just teachers; they are seasoned professionals who are deeply passionate about nurturing talent. Their dedication to helping students grow as actors is truly commendable. I would recommend the school to any actor wanting to gain industry knowledge and training for their future artistic endeavours.

It is always a pleasure and a privilege to work with graduates from Screenwise. Denise has crafted an exceptional, intensive training programme that embraces all aspects of the work, along with intelligent and well rounded understanding of how the business of being an Actor is managed.

I have Screenwise graduates currently working both domestically and overseas, and it is a testament to the training that they have undertaken that puts them head and shoulders above many other Actors from other established vocational courses.

Screenwise provides a high calibre of actors to Maura Fay Casting. The school has a plethora of talented directors and industry teachers who are up to the minute in being able to focus on what needs to be transported to the big and small screen.

Their knowledge and understanding of the industry has successfully opened up an avenue for actors to understand the ‘real’ way to approach their craft. I congratulate Denise on her brilliant concept of aiming for the ‘best’ industry people to impart their valuable experience. You can’t ask more of an acting school. The success of many of the graduates speaks for itself.

On behalf of Kim Ledger, AIF President Simonne Overend, Treasurer Paul Thomas, and the Board of Directors, I wanted to thank you sincerely for your support of the event last week and the 2014 Heath Ledger Scholarship.

The dinner is continuing to grow as a standalone fundraising event that supports emerging Australian actors. Your involvement is vital for building on the scholarship – both as a fitting tribute to Heath – and supporting those that follow in his footsteps.

I know Kim Ledger was particularly pleased to have Screenwise involved this year and looks forward to a continued partnership.

David Smith – Smith & Jones Management

“I’ve been working with graduates of Screenwise since I relocated to Sydney from Los Angeles in 2006. Since that time, I’ve seen the program grow from strength-to-strength to become, in my opinion, one of Australia’s top graduate programs.

I highly recommend Screenwise to any actor that is looking to obtain commercially viable skills with a practical and realistic approach to a career in the entertainment industry.”
