MMA and UFC Fighter, Soa Palelei, attends Perth Film School Workshop with Casting Director, Greg Apps.

 I recently attended the Greg Apps workshop hosted by Perth Film School.

Greg Apps is a man with so much knowledge and experience the things he shared with the class and taught us is invaluable. This is without a doubt the best money spent.

If you’re honestly wanting to get into acting and are actually serious about perfecting your craft, this is a workshop you MUST attend.
