“Pip has this… uncanny ability to make an actor feel relaxed in front of the camera. Fear disappears in her presence. I would not have been cast in a number of roles including“Truth”(Cate Blanchett/Robert Redford) or Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” if not for her.”
“So much valuable information and advice. My screen technique improved massively and she helped heaps with the practical technicalities of getting our screen tests together. Great personalised advice on individual goals, she has a lovely energy as a mentor. Would definitely recommend.”
“Pip showed me how the seemingly most simple and subtle things in acting can make the biggest difference. I was able to deliver an emotionally stronger performance after working with her for a few weeks.”
“Pip Edwards is a ‘no-bull-s***’ person, in the best possible way. She is intensely passionate about sharing knowledge, experience and skills. Her workshops are accessible and informative. Her honesty and passion is infectious. You can never have enough of her.”
