"I love that VAS has a bit of everything and the students get a taste of the multifacets of the industry which I believe better guides them to their niches and inspires the desire to learn and uncover knowledge, which is so important because acting school serves many more purposes than just learning how to perform. It is the catalyst for so many individuals to discover themselves on a deeper level due to the creativity that this career encourages. I see students come through and complete these courses and go on to do fantastic things outside the film industry, I watch students from day one who were shy, introverted and unsure of themselves, collect their certificate on graduation day with the confidence and ambition of someone much older than their years. That's the true graduation, it's of the mind."
