ECP students as film stars

Congratulations to Yelisey Kazakevich, Selma Kaymakci, Priya Ghotane, Anise Napoleao dos Reis , Lily Huong Mac and Sam Talcko on wrapping White Bird: A Wonder Story starring Gillian Anderson and Helen Mirren, directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Monster’s Ball).  Additionally, Matyáš Hronek, while not appearing in the film, was Bryce Gheisar’s double and got a chance to meet Helen Mirren!  Check out our students’ profiles on IMDB and boost their star rating!

Theatre teaching at ECP

Theatre teaching at the English College adapted during lockdown restrictions. The new focus was on increasing the quality of our student’s acting for the camera.  Casting for Hollywood productions such as these happened remotely or in the brief window the campus was open at the end of 2020.  A huge thanks to Myrnyx Tyrnyx Casting. The agency afforded us these wonderful opportunities and worked with us to develop our skills.  We are immensely proud of how our students adjusted to these changes in the curriculum. It is great to see how many of them achieved the most impressive outcome of all: starring in a movie.
