Ten weeks of intense training in film, television and commercials, Confidence on Camera is the best practical film & tv training around. With two instructors and a maximum class size of ten, Biz Studio has the highest instrtuctor-to-student ratio of any acting school in Vancouver. Classes are based around scene study using real audition scripts, so actors can apply 100% of what they learn in class to help them get work in the industry. Classes are typically a mix of working actors and new actors. The quality of our training is widely recognized by local talent agencies, many of whom are invited to our Talent Showcase on December 2nd. At the spring showcase an astounding 70% of our new actors found representation with a local talent agency!

“I must say it was the best showcase I have been to as of yet. I cannot wait for the next one!!!” -Brigitte Siebert, Act Talent

“You rock!” -Brenda Wong, Talent Co.

“I tell them ‘He’s a local, and he knows exactly what he’s doing.'” -Aaron, Hobbs Talent

The Fall Session of the Confidence on Camera class is only $295. To reserve your space call (604) 801-7050, classes are limited to ten participants. More details at valerien@canadafilm.com with a resume and current picture (either a professional headshot or a clean picture of just you lookin’ good). Heads up, she said “I’m looking for kids and parents who are serious about getting work, about getting auditions… not just weekends.” Valerie’s good people. Like any agent, it’s best to meet with them before you agree to anything – actors work very closely with their agents, so it’s important to have a good relationship.
