Film Acting Academy

International Guest Coach - Matthew Harrison
  • In my two years at ACT I experienced so much growth and gained a better understanding, not only regarding my acting or on camera technique, but also my emotional and inner truth. ACT has opened my eyes to so many things and helped me grow as a professional individual. I thank ACT for helping me with my first crucial steps and for their on-going support as I further my career.

  • ACT gave me a real chance of having a successful career in the entertainment industry. With industry professional lecturers, hands on approach to training and family like atmosphere; there is no better place to hone your skills.

  • My time at ACT was one of the most influential chapters of my life. Learning the tricks of the trade and trying to master the craft was one thing, but learning new and often scary truths about yourself was testing. ACT was my springboard into the acting community. I'm blessed to be involved in a theatre production at the moment called "Agterplaas". Without the guidance and teaching that I received from all the amazing coaches at ACT, none of it would've been a possibility. Thank you ACT!
