Bubblegum Academy is Finally Here!

You’ve heard the rumours and seen the Instagram posts about something new and exciting called Bubblegum Academy, and we’re delighted to announce that the doors are finally open!

Yes, that’s right,

Bubblegum Academy is now open and accepting students.

But, I guess we better tell you what it’s all about, right?

What is Bubblegum Academy?

In the last few years we’ve noticed that the child and teen acting industry is getting so much more competitive. In fact, it’s more competitive now than ever before with dozens of new and talented kids entering the industry each and every day.

What this means is that it’s even more difficult to stand out from the crowd

You see, a cute smile or a certain look will only get a child so far in the industry. What they really need are skills that will make a casting director sit up and take notice

But a term of acting classes can be expensive — like, super-expensive.

So we decided to shake things up a bit and create a platform that would give everyone access to professional training and guidance from industry experts.

And to make it even better, we decided to put it all online.

Yep, Bubblegum Academy is a completely digital development platform that gives children the opportunity to learn the skills they need for success at their own pace.

It’s a combination of pre recorded classes and live online lessons and workshops that your child can access any time, anywhere. All you’ll need is a good internet connection and a tablet or PC.

What classes will Bubblegum Academy have?

It would be easier to tell you what classes the academy won’t have, because we’ve covered the lot!

While the industry was going through a lockdown-enforced lull, we were hard at work creating pre recorded lessons and tutorials for the academy. We also mapped out and wrote lesson plans for months of live online lessons and workshops.

These cover topics such as auditioning skills, self tapes, and a whole range of acting skills that casting directors are often on the lookout for.

In a nutshell, it’s everything a child actor needs to kickstart a successful career.

Who will teach the classes?

Since we started working on Bubblegum Academy, the team has grown to include successful actors, acting coaches, and industry professionals both here in Australia and in LA.

These are the people who know exactly what it takes to succeed in the world of entertainment and the ones who will help your child develop their acting skills.

Trust us, we only work with the best of the best, but you already know that.

How does it work?

Bubblegum Academy is a membership platform. That means that for a monthly subscription fee, your child will have unlimited access to the academy and all its pre recorded and live classes.

After signing up, you’ll receive your child’s login details. This gives you access to the membership dashboard where you can find tabs for pre recorded lessons and live online classes.

All pre recorded lessons can be accessed at any time.

Live online classes are held on Zoom and scheduled at appropriate times for children in Australia (nothing after bedtime).

We even record each live class for anyone that misses it so you can rewatch at a later date. All live recordings are available on the platform forever.

Some live classes will involve smaller group numbers to give everyone a chance to get involved while all classes will have a dedicated question and answer time.

There’s even a membership forum where kids can attend Q&A sessions with their teachers and industry experts.

It’s really that simple. As we said, all you need is a good internet connection, a tablet or PC, and a membership to Bubblegum Academy.

How much does it cost?

That’s the million dollar question!

Well, not quite. You see, while we wanted to make Bubblegum Academy the most comprehensive online acting development platform in the world (yes, we dream big), we also wanted to make sure that it could be accessed by all.

So for that reason, we decided to set the monthly membership fee to around the same price as a single private acting lesson.

You read that right.

For the same cost as just one private acting lesson your child will have:

  • Unlimited access to our library of on-demand tutorials and guides
  • The chance to attend live interactive workshops and lessons
  • Access to a membership forum with Q&A sessions
  • Advice and guidance from successful actors and industry experts
  • Access to our live classes archive

To view our pricing, follow the link below to our website and follow the enrolment prompts.

We want Bubblegum Academy to be the best acting development platform in the world. That means that we’ll continue to work hard to make sure that our classes and workshops are the best lessons out there.

So if your child is serious about their acting career, and you want to give them the best shot at success, you know what to do!

We’ll see you in the Academy!

WANT TO BE A CHILD
ACTOR OR MODEL?

At Bubblegum, we represent some of Australia’s brightest young stars, but even so, we’re always on the lookout for fresh new faces and talent.

If your child is aged anywhere from 3 months to 18 years of age, and you think they might have what it takes to shine in front of a camera or on stage, then we want to hear from you.

We’ll set up a quick informal chat where we’ll get a feel for your child’s suitability for working in the industry.

The lucky kids that make it onto our books benefit from in-house workshops and coaching sessions to help them brush up on their skills. They’ll also get great advice and tips from the Bubblegum team, some of whom have worked as child models and actors themselves! We’ll even arrange a portfolio shoot with our in-house photographer.

We want all the kids on our books to have their chance to shine and if that means working twice as hard to make it happen, then that’s what we’ll do!
