These are exciting times at Screenwise with Screenwise Grads, Christian Clark (Home & Away) and Ed Kavalee (Thank God You're Here), seeing the feature film they produced and starred in, Scumbus being aired on Channel 10 last week. Scumbus has also won the Best Ensemble Film at the LA Comedy Festival. Todd Lasance (Spartacus, Vengeance) has just completed an 'In The Tub' photo shoot, a coffee table book in aid of breast cancer research.
Robbie Milloy has just appeared in the new Sony TVC, Arianne Putnam and Taylor Thomson has had guest roles on Dance Academy and Home & Away and current Diploma student Rachel Wah Day's new Vodaphone commercial has just gone to air.
Screenwise CEO Denise Roberts, who starred in Cliffy and Mrs Biggs for the ABC, is about to commence shooting the feature film Nerve over the Christmas break with another Screenwise tutor, Gary Sweet. Ken Wallace is the grand prize winner of the New York Screenplay Competition, Terry Serio is in rehearsals for the play Hollywood Ending, Alan Flower has just finished Boxing Day and Di Smith has recently appeared in Puberty Blues and Rake.
Screenwise employs tutors of the highest professional standards who are regularly employed in the film & television industry giving Screenwise the edge over other drama schools. They are well aware how hard the film industry can be for actors and know it's getting harder all the time. Work is scarce and highly competitive. Budgets are low, schedules are tight and producers not only need talented actors, they also need technically efficient ones. The industry saw an urgent necessity for acting schools to look beyond just the creative side to the actor's craft and see the big picture, and Screenwise has successfully filled that need for over twelve years.
