We can’t quite believe that BRAVA is two years old this month - and what a journey it’s been! So we thought we’d reflect on the last 24 months and what it’s meant to us.
What started out as a small commitment to provide high quality 1:1 training in voice acting, business, marketing and more, has become a fully operational business. We’re now a team of 6 core staff, along with a host of visiting master coaches from across the globe.
Celebrating our community
We’ve created a strong cohort of artists and established firm partnerships with industry experts, to create an environment where we believe growth and creativity can flourish. Fostering generous, inspiring conversations to support each other is what we really believe in.
Supporting professional talent
Most importantly, we’ve helped so many performers take their career to the next level. Our aim is always to provide bespoke, individualised training and opportunities to working actors and performers, as well as put Bristol and the South West on the map.
Some of our highlights include:
Training over 150 individual actors to date
Launching our BRAVA Talent Database
Produced over 50 Talent Demos
Hosted 17 free Q&As with industry experts
Bringing Master VO Coaches from America to Bristol for in-person Masterclasses
Attending the Games Developers Conference as part of the UK Government’s Department of Business and Trade (DBT) Games Mission & meeting LucasFilm to showcase our Talent
Hosting our first Acting Retreat in the Devon Countryside
Trained at LIPA & Bristol Old Vic Theatre School
Added three Bristol-based female staff to our core team
Fostering industry partnerships & ongoing conversations to support our Talent long t
We have so much happening over the next year, with more announcements soon. But the most important thing is having had the privilege to work with all of you - there is so much genuine talent coming up through the ranks and the opportunities to create and support you is something we are really proud of. Helping you to master your craft, secure agents and book work is the best return we can get. Read our Talent Stories here.
