What our students are saying
iampro has allowed me to connect and network with like-minded people and industry professionals, which isn't an opportunity you would normally get very easily. I really think it's all about who knows you and I have had personal feedback and connected with loads of people working in the industry which has really helped me. I have also loved staying active as a performer in their community and doing the creative challenges each week!
When lockdown began my 6th form closed, I had no acting classes or workshops to attend. I wasn't using or building my creativity until I found iampro, with weekly challenges I could build my craft and discover new ones such as writing my own material! I got regular feedback from the team and really look forward to their weekly Q&A's with industry professionals.
I discovered IAMPRO during lockdown at a time when I felt completely uninspired and lacked any creative drive. Seeing the enthusiasm from Charlie and Matt as they announced weekly challenges on the community page really helped motivate me to start working on my craft and push my creative blocks and boundaries. iampro is a place that I feel completely supported by both the leaders and my fellow peers; it’s a platform where, immediately, you are comfortable enough to be vulnerable without fear of failure and know you are going to get expert advice and guidance to help navigate you forward as a professional artist.
I have found the live talks and coaching very helpful with excellent tips, tricks, advice & guidance, not only for the challenges they set out weekly but also for future projects. iampro has help me build on my authentic confidence and my acting 'tool kit'.
