The Toronto Academy Of Acting For Film & Television Announces Its New Private Career College Status And New Program

TORONTO, ON, CANADA (RPRN) 08/25/12 — - Find Out If You Have What It Takes To Succeed In The Film & Television Industry With Toronto Academy Of Acting Four Month Full- Time Intensive Program -

Film Acting program to begin on October 1, 2012

Toronto Academy of Acting for Film & Television (TAAFT), a private career college registered with the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 is turning the film industry on its head with the launch of its new film and television acting full time program. It will offer a cost saving, condensed 360 hours of training within a four month frame.

Toronto Academy of Acting for Film & Television’s Curriculum has been developed by international award-winning film director Andrej Acin and the Academy team of teachers, guided by Founder and Director Susan Burych’s vision.

Students who complete this intensive Curriculum will graduate with the Film Acting diploma in “ESSENTIALS FOR FILM AND TELEVISION ACTING”, which will provide them with all the necessary skills to “make it” in the industry. However, the support and training will not end upon graduation.  Fortunately, the Acting Academy will offer its mentoring program  to all students  who display the drive and capability to go further. Within its program, the Academy will introduce students to recognized principal talent agents, directors, filmmakers and producers in the film industry.All graduating students will have the opportunity to showcase their talent with their own professionally edited and produced demo reel, featuring two acting scenes. A “demo reel", or "show reel" is the equivalent of an artist's portfolio and a must-have for any aspiring actor.

Susan J. Burych’s vision for the TORONTO ACADEMY OF ACTING FOR FILM & TELEVISION has always been to offer a full time condensed film-acting program to benefit all aspiring actors. Along with her team of actively involved film industry professionals who have worked with such names as James Cameron, Paul W.S. Anderson, Renée Zellweger, Atom Egoyan, Michael Kennedy, Miranda Richardson and many more, the Film Academy’s program has been designed to support that vision.

Burych said, “It’s not enough to offer acting classes anymore. I wanted to develop a program that will enlighten students whether they have or don’t  have the right stuff to make it in this highly competitive business without breaking the bank.” Burych adds,” I believe that we have succeeded and are offering this program not only at the right time but also at the right place. Let’s not forget that Toronto employs 25,000 workers in the film industry alone. “Total Recall” starring Colin Farrell just wrapped its shoot, securing this city as a destination for the film industry. It’s promising.”

Supporting Burych’s optimism about the shape of the industry,
