The 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp is for Actors that want a deeply immersive acting experience and a powerful scene for your demo reel at a reasonable price. Learn empowering techniques to help you create rich, compelling and memorable characters from Brad Milne, veteran coach and a co-star of the upcoming Lifetime MOW “I’m Coming For You” as the ignominious Casey Flay. This two-day intensive workshop and comprehensive course provides mission critical knowledge for all levels of actors.
Milne began coaching actors in 1999 with the opening of his first studio and continues to successfully train actors in Canada and the USA. Brad’s approach helps actors create compelling memorable characters and book roles in studio and indie films, TV-series, MOW’s, and stage. As a Film, TV, and Stage Actor he extensively studied with top coaches in Los Angeles and Toronto. Born from a relentless work ethic over 25+ years Milne arrived at PERGE a powerful script interpretation and character creation technique that is quickly digested and compellingly applied by actors at all levels.
“I absolutely love it. Brad’s such a passionate person about the art. That’s what I love; it’s about the art, perfecting it, the excellence of it and understanding more of it. Always searching for a better way of learning and even he admits he’s always learning and sharing those experiences. When you come to this class you are yourself and he pulls out the strengths that you have and works on the weaknesses, but always you use the best of your skill sets. I love the environment, it’s intimate and I like it because the classes are a little bit smaller, you get to know everyone. ” Elvis Stojko – Ice Girls Star, Actor, World Champion Figure Skater
“Milne Studio Classes and 48 Hr Bootcamp: Brad is an inspiring acting teacher. I love how he passionately challenges and supports his students; this fact alone won my attention. My background as a coach/counsellor, and my own personal approach, gives me an awareness of how much energy, care and effort it takes. Most people simply wouldn’t do it to the extent that Brad does – he doesn’t give up on his students! It takes courage and leadership to inspire others to believe in themselves. What I find most impressive in his teaching is that he continues to be a student on an ongoing basis, constantly adding value to others. In addition, his refined intuition helps him to keenly tune into his students’ work process making his individual attention, in my humble opinion, unmatched. I highly recommend him as an acting coach and definitely will continue to learn more from him.” Elaine Ma, Toronto Actress & Certified Life Coach
“I had the privilege to work with Brad Milne for about eight months, Brad is extremely committed to help you achieve your goals, he genuinely cares and really puts in all his effort. He makes every moment enjoyable. He coached and prepped me for a leading role in a movie and before then I had no experience in acting, other than the odd school play. After only a few months of his amazing coaching I got a call confirming I had the role. He really broke down my character and I felt fully prepared once shooting started. I will continue to work with Brad in the future and I hope other actors and actresses will have the privilege to work with Brad and get to experience his amazing knowledge of the art. His classes are truly something special. I can never say thank you enough! All the best Brad, Michaela.” Michaela du Toit / Ice Girls Star, Toronto Actress
“I just completed Brad’s 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp. It was a tremendous experience with a great group of people and an excellent instructor. Brad reached down inside of me and drew out a performance that I never would have believed I could deliver. He did the same with the others in the group. I highly recommend the Bootcamp.” Jack Langhorn, Toronto Actor
“Just finished 3 Day Bootcamp! Intense three days full of discovery, more discovery, inspiration, (from Brad and fellow actors) and a new found confidence that “I am enough”. Many thanks to Brad for his patience, wisdom and dedication to not just myself, but to ALL the actors in guiding us to new discoveries and challenging us! Shout out also to the fabulous fellow actors who I met! What a beautiful and talented group of people.” Bernadette Medhurst, Toronto Actress
“Signed up for the boot camp and it was an absolute excellent experience. Brad Milne gets you to dive into your role no matter how timid you are and guides you to be a better actor. He gives great advice and direction. I definitely picked up a lot of new skills from him. I 100% recommend his classes.
Also, he has great hair ” Angeli Ang, Toronto Actress
“I’ve had the pleasure of participating in Brad’s Ongoing Actor Intensives as well as the 48-hour Acting Bootcamp and would highly recommend both! Brad’s wonderful PERGE technique provides a thoughtful method to deconstruct and interpret the material. He then combines bodywork/character improv/scene study to help you find a unique and honest voice/POV for that character. It’s an amazing journey and I am grateful to have found such an inspiring and caring coach in Brad!” Aliya Kanani, Toronto Actress
I took Brad’s 48 hour Acting boot camp a few weeks ago and I highly recommend it. The preparation, coaching, direction, and shooting of a monologue helped me book the lead roll on a pilot. Brad takes actors to places they had no idea they could reach. Well done! I especially recommend his training for actors who take their careers seriously.” David Flannigan, U.S. Actor
“Brad thank you for your energetic style challenging us to honour the script, to find the truth in every scene, provoking us to make strong choices, to take risks and huge leaps of faith. To feel all the dark things in life that we most times deny, to unlock our subconscious, get out of our head and step into our heart. To break those personal glass walls, to cry and become more vulnerable, to listen to each other, their story, a compassionate insight into the human experience. To confront our fears and hurl ourselves wholeheartedly into the scene which translated into empowered work. You are an incredibly passionate, enthusiastic and focused Coach and we are grateful for your dedication. Milne Acting Studio is a nurturing place for Actors to grow in their craft. Cheers!!!” Coral Johnson – 48 Hour Acting Bootcamp & Classes
“This was my first acting class, and I am glad my first was with Brad. I was a bit apprehensive when I enrolled but knew it was the perfect fit the moment I walked in the door. Brad presents a down to earth and professional demeanor in his classes, and his PERGE method is a fantastic building block approach to character and script breakdown in creating an authentic performance. As a retired military officer/pilot and 3 time combat veteran with over 27 years of service I am a no-nonsense, get to the point sort of person and not a big fan of the touchy-feely – Brad had the perfect blend of both! I want my daughters to attend his class even if it’s just for the life experience! Forget the five– Make it 6 STARS!” Robert T. Yarborough, U.S. Actor
“It’s been awhile since I’d done any acting and having a full-time job on second shift doesn’t make it possible for me to really be involved in performing anymore. I saw the info for the 48 hour bootcamp here and thought it would be perfect to help me get back into performing. I was more than impressed with the structure and professionalism level of the course as well as Brad’s ability and the desire he has to push people to their performing limits to make them better actors and actresses. 5/5, I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about performing, in any manner, and to those who are trying to improve their ability to open up and communicate better with people.” Richard Campa, Texas Actor
