Recommended by Amanda Joy, Second Jen (City/OMNI) Co-creator and Lead Actor, Son of a Critch Season 2 (CBC) Co-executive producer, 2022 WGC Screenwriting Award Winner. "I've attended many acting schools throughout my life, and it's always a mixed bag when you try a new place-- is it going to be a great place to learn? Will I take away real practical skills? Will the environment be safe and respectful? I found Milne Studios through Google, and had all of these questions before I attended. I can confidently say that all of the criteria I look for in a solid studio are here. Those newer to acting will appreciate the gentle but informed guidance of teachers who do not shy away from technique based exercises too often ignored by film and television schools. Those who have been in the game longer will appreciate the reconnection with fundamentals we so often forget, in addition to the kind of screen training we're used to. Advanced classes are an opportunity to keep your camera skills sharp, and make new discoveries. So far I have trained with Brad and Jason, and both have been knowledgable, and respectful of actors' creative choices, while still supporting them through direction and adjustment. I've seen them work with different people, and am always aware of how safe the students feel with them, and what an opportunity that gives the artists to make bold choices and take risks. This place is *not* about inducing anxiety to keep you coming back for more classes, it's not about the ego of the teacher (both of which are huge red flags). It's somewhere that's truly all about the students and helping them grow into the best artist they can be. In many ways it's ahead of its time, and part of the newer, more respectful industry we are thankfully moving toward. If you're already a professional, then this is a great place to keep active. If, like me, your life is a bit too busy at the moment for regular classes, then the private coaching option is a wonderful opportunity to explore your craft and keep sharp. They have different self taping options (virtual and in-person) available as well. I genuinely enjoy doing my self tapes here; rather than "just" an audition, they are an opportunity to explore a character alongside a knowledgable peer who can weigh in and discuss. Very much like when you work with a director on a gig. The coaches encourage you to actually have fun and stretch your creativity while performing and telling stories. Which is really the point, isn't it? TLDR: Check it out, no matter your level. It is a fun and practical place to study. Virtual or in person. Self tape and private coaching available. Classes for different levels." Amanda Joy
"Milne Studio has been such an integral part of helping to shape these early stages of my acting journey. From the very first phone call I had with Brad to learn more about the studio, I could sense his genuine energy and passion for the craft of acting as well as its pedagogy. I can attest from first-hand experience that Brad is 100% committed to his students' development both in and outside of class. His coaching style is thoughtful, nuanced, and encouraging. He has a special knack for identifying and building on the unique strengths of each individual student, and he gracefully and safely facilitates the exploration of the depths of the human condition to help students achieve their highest potential in any given circumstance. He is extremely generous with the amount of camera time that he gives each student/scene, allowing for the space necessary to fully explore the dynamics and intricacies of each scene. I walk away from each class with numerous pieces of wisdom and insight, feeling confident with the knowledge gained - as well as new material for my demo reel! I have grown so much within the past 10 months of taking classes at Milne Studio, and I feel truly supported in my progress as an actor. In a short span of time, I've managed to book 7 principal roles in films and series, and Brad has been a true source of guidance and mentorship every step of the way. Brad's sincere commitment to and investment in his students is unparalleled. I would (and absolutely do) vouch for Milne Studio - for anybody in any stage of their acting journey - in a heartbeat!' Erica Wang, Canadian Actress
"From the moment I first reached out to Brad about classes, it was clear that he is not only hugely passionate and knowledgeable about acting, but that he is also conscious of making new students feel comfortable, while also ensuring they get maximum value from the course. His constructive feedback is always delivered in a supportive way but it personally helped me to challenge myself and to better apply myself to the art of acting. The classes never feel rushed and everyone gets their dedicated time to rehearse scenes and monologues in a safe and supportive space. I feel like after a few months, I already understand far more about what work is expected of a great actor and the tools which can be used to get you there. I am already looking forward to my next classes at the studio and would recommend that anyone looking for classes as a seasoned performer, or a first-timer, gets in touch with Brad!" Aisling Carty, Canadian Actress
"In my opinion, Milne Studio provides not only quality training to actors of all levels of experience, but also shares with each actor the important details of what’s required to sign with a busy agency and have a successful career as a professional actor. As an agent, I always look forward to getting referrals from Milne Studio as they always present a professional package of materials that helps me to decide immediately if they would be a good match with the agency and if I should take a meeting. Highly recommend!" Teri Ritter, Ritter Talent Agency.
"Brad just doesn’t give up. He doesn’t care if we go past time, he genuinely cares and ensures you get the best performance you could possibly give for a self tape. He uses words like “I’m not giving up on you martina, let’s go again, I know your potential.” His classes are wonderful too, you’re put in groups with actors that are on the same level as you and all grow together as a class. There’s always an insane energy in the room when people are performing at the studio. I’ve never felt the work to be taken more sacredly than I do at Milne. The studio really nurtures your craft and you feel safe to make big choices. Brad has coached me for several leading role auditions and each tape my agent falls in love with. I’m excited to keep growing as an artist with Brads help. I never felt more like myself and confident in the work. I sincerely appreciate what the studio does for my craft." Martina Biskupovic, Canadian Actress.
Brad Milne is an extraordinary acting coach who works with each individual actor, finding their strengths and their weaknesses, and guiding them towards becoming a working actor. I can highly recommend the talent that train at Milne Studios as actors who are ready to enter the world of auditioning, and ultimately booking roles. I can also highly recommend Milne Studios as a studio that actors should add to their resume." Kate Kellner, The George Agency.
"As a commercial actor, I enrolled at Milne Studio’s Level I Monologue online acting classes to develop my memorization, delivery and character skills. During the course, I progressed from performing 30-second to two-minute scenes. Acting coach, Brad Milne pushed me out of my comfort zone on more than one occasion but I can now confidently memorize copy/sides in quick time and change up my delivery to provide variety during takes."
