Our 'Studio'

Graduate actors Mark Lang & Stephanie Allsopp.jpg

Our vision for every actor who studies and trains with us, is to provide them with not only world class technique, but also real opportunities to be involved in high quality production.

Studying under and with legendary Australian actors such as double AFI winner Luke Ford, the Hobbit's Stephen Hunter, and many more, Kelly knows his craft as a way of life and is also the winner of three 'Best Film' and two 'Best Director' awards amongst many international nominations for his short film 'KURZEME FORTRESS'.

In 2021 Kelly partnered up with one of Australia's very few advanced Meisner technique teachers Mathew Costin whose knowledge and insight create a tremendous opportunity for actors to work alongside.

2022 is an exciting year that will see five advanced graduates complete their extensive training, notable since this is the most Sanford Meisner graduates in Australia since 2014. 

Our 2022 Alumni


We believe that being a career actor presents real challenges that are very unique, and so require a unique solution that can increase their opportunities whilst encouraging them personally.
