Biebie productions acting courses

  1. 1. Welcome to Biebie Productions My specialization lies in offering you high quality, custom designed courses to meet your needs. Many of my clients don’t have years to study; they only have a few weeks or 3 months to develop their skills under the umbrella of Speech, Acting and/or Personal Development. I can help you achieve your goal! I am a specialist in elocution and speech therapy. My speech therapy sessions can correct any speech impediment and/or help recover vocal communication abilities as in the case of stroke patients. Whether you are a member of the general public who wants to improve their communication skills in the workplace and/or in general; an actor who needs to master an American accent for an international production in film, television and theatre industries; or simply want to achieve your personal goals in life...My courses are a valuable stepping stone for anyone who wishes to achieve their goals.

  2. 2. ACTING: WHAT MAKES OUR ACTING COURSES SO DIFFERENT? My main reason for devising these two courses is that I wanted to refine and highlight what actors today are utilizing most when acting, both for film, television and theatre. From all my years of study and working in the field I have found that with careful observation a pattern emerge and these are the skills which I focus on. This process has been feasible, because my students are being featured in local/overseas films, television soaps, and commercials; presenting on television and radio. I also offer onset coaching. Two acting courses on offer: BASIC ACTING = 7lessons X 1.1/2 HRS P/W ADVANCED ACTING = 11lessons X 1.1/2 HRS P/W This course is presented by Biebie Productions Tel: +27 084 625 4104 Fax: 086 665 2227 Website:
  3. 3. BASIC ACTING This course focuses directly on what directors look for in actors. It helps everybody; an amateur actor wanting to develop their skills OR an accomplished actor who wants to brush up on their skills. It teaches you the tools needed, which all international and local actors are required to use and know. It allows the student to learn about acting in a realistic way which is similar to everyday life – since acting is about portraying an everyday slice of life in a realistic and naturalistic manner. I offer a version of this course for kids too. Benefits: An intense learning experience of new techniques in front of like-minded people. Total immersion in the craft of acting and going to auditions. On-camera training within the first few days. Personal strengths and weaknesses will be revealed for character development.
