This course is open to anyone aged 5 years and older.  You don't have to be registered with Blaze Models to attend this course. This course prepares models to deliver believable performances in front of the camera at castings/ auditions. We will focus on building fundamental acting skills like creativity and imagination, voice, body language, gesture and facial expression.  Participants are given the opportunity to develop the confidence to express themselves in front of the camera, therefore improving their chances of booking jobs.


The course will cover:

  • TV and Film Industry Theory
  • Creating different characters using actions.
  • Portraying different emotional states.
  • The accurate portrayal of physical states.
  • Short dialogue scenes based on the age of the model.


This course will be presented by acting coach Stanimir Stoykov.  He has a Master’s degree in Film and TV. He is currently employed as the Drama and Digital Literacy teacher at Crawford Italia school.


Stanimir lectured in Film Theory, History and Directing for two years. He has been involved in the Film and TV industry for the past twenty years in various capacities like performing, producing and directing; but his primary focus has been on his work as a Casting Director for countless commercials, feature films and TV series - including the Netflix production Blood and Water.  His independent theatre and film work has gathered somewhat of a cult status. Over the past twenty years Stanimir has collaborated with some of South Africa’s finest award-winning talents like Robert Whitehead, Grethe Fox, Nomsa Buthelezi, Tamara Dey, Amra Faye Wright and Sibusiso Radebe.


There are only 10 seats available per class/ age group for this course as we would like to pay individual attention to each student and we will have to practise social distancing.
