BTA STUDENTS STORIES

 ''Being a BTA student has definitely increased my confidence as well as my passion to pursue acting.''- Amber Lowe

Amber Lowe

'I first met the Bazan team in October 2019, and decided I needed to start investing in my acting. I felt slightly lost around this time, having left university with no clear pathway, so when Nathalie mentioned the BTA classes to me, I knew it was something I wanted and needed to do. Having done a theatre degree, I started with the screen acting and self taping course to begin with. The self tape course taught me the essential do's and don'ts as well as giving me the opportunity to explore different characters, methods and scripts. Nathalie and Idriss were so welcoming and supportive and they has so much knowledge and tips to share with the class. I left feeling very confident on how to self tape professionally! I then started the screen acting course which was a breath of fresh air! After feeling demotivated  and uninspired for a few months, being able to connect with like minded actors and creators was amazing! Being a BTA student has definitely increased my confidence, as well as my determination to pursue acting. Since I first met Nathalie she has been provided guidance and feedback with my acting journey, she has been so helpful and reassuring. I would recommend the BTA classes to anyone who would benefit from guidance, or for anyone who wants to do something creative! I was thrilled when I was offered representation by the agency, and I look forward to coming back to class this spring term!'

''BTA classes are a safe environment for any actor. You can totally be yourself and be open and you will never feel you are being judged instead you are understood''-Fattah Ahmed

''BTA classes are fun, educational and have helped me to develop into a confident and capable actor.''

-Alexander Wolverson

Fattah Ahmed 

'I discovered about Bazan Talent Agency and the courses through a friend and after finding out that they accept anyone from any background ( I had no professional acting experience) , and anyone was welcome to class. I booked myself on to the self tape course and remember feeling very nervous on my first day of class not knowing what to expect. I also remember feeling intimated by the other actors who had much more experience than me but this quickly became feeling inspired as everyone was so friendly and helpful and so eager to learn. During the self tape course I was amazed to see how much goes into self taping. Nathalie even bought a friend from the BBC to our final class so that we could perform our duologues to them. Nathalie always provides me with honest feedback, and told me that I had potential but  that work still had to be done! I took her advice and attended the Uta Hagen course, where I learnt many acting techniques and Uta Hagens 9 questions which is a technique I use to this day. The class was again filled with actors who bought so much passion and eagerness and Nathalie always creates a safe environment for any actor. You can totally be yourself and be open and you will never feel like you are being judged instead you are understood. Every time a BTA course ends I feel more confident as an actor. I genuinely believe that had I had not found out about the agency or its classes I believe I would not be pursuing my dreams and passion to be an actor.  am now signed with Bazan Talent Agency as an official client and I am proud of my journey so far, and the journey continues...' 

Alexander Wolverson 

'I first met Nathalie at an Uta Hangen workshop. I remember sitting at the back of the room crippled with anxiety and insecurity. These emotions were quickly remedied by the group’s friendly, inclusive and supportive nature. I left that short first session with a newly discovered confidence, and eagerness to return. I have since attended many of Nathalie’s workshops and classes, each time learning invaluable skills and building my confidence. Each class teaches theoretical knowledge with its practical application.  It is often the highlight of my week attending Nathalie’s classes. I am able to work with new and familiar faces, where I have learned from professional actors and made friends. These experiences have really changed me. Nathalie’s classes are fun, educational and have helped me to develop into a confident and capable actor. I did not follow the traditional route of attending drama school/university and have often thought that it would be impossible to become a professional actor at my age. I have a passion for acting, which Nathalie has fostered and developed. These classes really do give actors the skills and knowledge to succeed. With hard work, dedication and a little talent, these classes will help you to realise your potential and flourish.'
