Private & On-Set Coaching | Self Tapes

For Beginner | Intermediate | Advanced | Working Professionals

"Brad is amazing, he got me a rushed spot right away to run over my scenes and monologues for a College audition. I first met Brad maybe a year before and was in the group classes. I was so stressed out but he managed to get me to focus on the material and even added a few brilliant ideas. A few days later, I was accepted into George Brown! Truly couldn't have done it without his expertise. Thank you so much, Brad! Would 100% recommend this studio to anyone." Savannah Weeks, Canadian Actress.

"Booked a self tape with Brad. He’s great. He went above and beyond to help with my audition. Booked the feature supporting role." Elie Gemael, Canadian Actor

"Toronto Acting Coach, Brad Milne gets you, as an actor, to the core of a character in a flash and has given me the courage and confidence to venture into molding my own interpretation of a character. This is acting coaching on an other level." ~ Bryan Ratushniak, Canadian Producer / Actor

Brad Milne

Head Coach & Founder

BIO - Basically, I was doing Stand-up and Sketch comedy for about 4 years, and realized that I really wanted to be Actor. So I auditioned for and got into the American Repertory Theatre’s Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard, also known as A.R.T. I got a Master’s degree, which is great but it’s funny when you leave when you feel like you’re just starting to learn. Then it was on to New York for 10 years to learn more. Got an agent, and did a bunch of great plays, TV, and Film with all kinds of Directors, and parts of all sizes. All the while I tried to keep growing by taking classes from the best  On Camera teachers I could find.

Training Day

Saturday – 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM

A comprehensive and in-depth investigation into Milne’s technique, PERGE; helping you effectively breakdown scripts, giving you stronger role prep and improved audition skills. We'll apply precise interpretive steps adding dimension to your roles.


You’ll engage in breathing, energy, voice, movement, interpersonal connection, improvisation, storytelling, monologues, scene study and performance exercises. By the end of the day you’ll be immersed in character and ready to play the role, with residue of the day’s work present until the next morning. Applying best practices greatly improves both acting and performance ability.

Shooting Day

Sunday – 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM

The Set – The day starts with a brief warm up (foundation and interpretation exercises) and discussion about pacing through a shoot day. Learning to connect and reconnect with your role is essential. In character and ready to play the role you’ll move into our on-camera environment. While directors love it when actors hit it on the first take, we’re often called upon to repeat a scene or parts of a scene several times for coverage. Actors have to be ready.

The Performance – Time to step into the ring. Like any sport or engagement, proper preparation is critical to your success. The same applies in acting: we must precisely prepare for the part, make the focus of the work the back, front, top, bottom and all the sides of the role, then trust that we can let the prep go and live in the present, breathing quietly in our bodies on screen. Your performance will be professionally shot then mastered and delivered to you via Vimeo.

All of the criteria I look for in a solid studio.

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. There are options for in-person and online classes so students are able to learn in the most comfortable way possible for them. 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. 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.
