Private Self Tape Auditions by Stan Wong
A writer/ director, Stan Wong found his passion for film while living in the West Village, New York. He wrote his first short film, “Lonely,” after contemplating long and hard on his successful but unfulfilling business career. In 2010 Stan and Brad Milne meet for the first time in the audition for “Lonely,” where Brad was cast as the lead. They have become close friends ever since, learning much from each other. Stan is currently developing his first feature film “Departure.”
Before you land a role, you have to deliver a winning performance. Have an award winning director work with you for your, private, one on one, self tape submissions. Audition sides that are sent to actors usually leave a lot up to the imagination. Work with Stan to develop the most creative and proficient interpretation of the script. In this new environment, self taped auditions have become the norm. Production value of those tapes are more important than ever. Let us help you be confident that you delivered the best performance with the maximum production value for your submissions.
ADVANCED ACTING INSTRUCTION
Taught by Brad Milne
Actor, entrepreneur, producer, director and coach with 250+ Acting assignments in the past 25 years coupled with 17 successful years experience as an acting coach. Brad 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.
Taught by Jason Weinberg
After doing Stand-up and Sketch comedy for 4 years, Jason became an Actor back in 1993. Quickly realizing the need for professional training, he auditioned for, and earned a master’s degree from the American Repertory Theatre’s Institute of Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard, also known as A.R.T. He then continued to study On Camera Acting for the next 25 years from some of the best teachers in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto.
Jason is very lucky to have worked on numerous plays by great authors, with great directors, primarily in New York, Boston, and here in Toronto. He is also equally grateful to have been the lead in Television series and had important recurring roles in others. He has worked on over 100 other television and film projects. He currently has a recurring role in the upcoming Netflix Series “Grand Army”. He just finished shooting the miniseries “The Green Room” with Jeff Daniels. Hopefully, when we return to normal life, he can continue his work on the movie Flint Strong by Barry Jenkins (Moonlight). He is truly honored to be part of Milne Acting Studios, and the special atmosphere of respect and growth created by Brad Milne.
Taught by Raechel Fisher

After graduation, she launched into her first professional performance in Canadian Stage’s Shakespeare in High Park in their productions of Hamlet (directed by Birgit Schreyer Duarte) and All’s Well That End’s Well (directed by Ted Witzel).

She also extends her passion to chaperoning young actors’ onset and in theatre. Raechel looks forward to getting back to work and adjusting to the new challenges coming our way! She hopes that through her classes, she can provide a space where young actors can find their strength and engage with their sense of play—even if that means falling on their faces a few times! She feels so excited and lucky to be able to join such an incredibly driven group of actors at Milne’s Studio.
