Film Actor Academy Member Review

Serious about acting? Want to master your craft and become truly remarkable? These are some of the questions I have asked myself in the past and now I have found the answers as to ‘how’. The Film Actors Academy has changed my life and enhanced my journey bringing me confidence and success. A simple start up notion which lays the foundations of a significant approach – knowledge, strategy and skill. At the Academy we learn through the 30 principles which explore acting in intricate detail – learning the mechanics of life, human behaviours and celebrating it’s EVERYTHING through the art of acting. I have never been so full up of knowledge and feel reassured that I can walk into an audition or on set being totally prepared. Thank you Paul J Lane for being an amazing teacher and an inspiring human being. Take it from me; I won the Best Actress Award at the Film Actors Academy voted by members – So Why not? Why not me? Why not me now? So what about you? Is it your turn to shine?! This is where the magic is...own the miraculous. Joanna Rose Barton
