This course focuses directly on what directors look for in actors. It helps everybody; an amateur actor wanting to develop their skills OR an accomplished actor who wants to brush up on their skills. It teaches you the tools needed, which all international and local actors are required to use and know. It allows the student to learn about acting in a realistic way which is similar to everyday life – since acting is about portraying an everyday slice of life in a realistic and naturalistic manner. I offer a version of this course for kids too. Benefits: • An intense learning experience of new techniques in front of like-minded people. • Total immersion in the craft of acting and going to auditions. • On-camera training within the first few days. • Personal strengths and weaknesses will be revealed for character development. • A professional working atmosphere. • You will become a better communicator and listener. • Viewing a role from a different perspective by encouraging you to think outside the box.

Directors look for specific aspects when directing actors. Throughout all my years being in the industry (27yrs) I have come up with a course which caters to those aspects directors are looking for. I have had numerous successes with this course and my students upon completion always go from strength to strength. Course Outline: Use of voice - warming up your voice; How to go to a casting - Preparation for a casting; Translate preparation into an on camera performance; Handling the call back and meeting the client. Tools of acting - business; status levels, listing skills, acting vs. Reacting, Character building - Different ways to approach characterization; Exercises aimed at physical and vocal transformation, including a detailed look at mannerisms, speech patterns, posture, gesture and clothing. Monologues/Duologues - How to analyze a scene using the following tools: Overall Objective; Scene Objective, Obstacles; Beats and Actions; Place and Fourth Wall; Inner Objects and Doings. Textual analysis - Modulation; Improvisation – Structured and Unstructured - as a vehicle for harnessing the power of the imagination, being spontaneous and collaborating with fellow actors. Memorizing of lines and blocking. The basics of acting technique, including finding motivation and uncovering subtext; Stanislavski techniques. One of my students after completing this course was featured on the Pharrell Williams "Happy" music video. He continues to get work and shine! Some of my other students have been featured on Ekasi, Sewende Laan just to name a few.

Formed in 1916 as The Rhodesia Native Regiment, its troops were blooded with honour in the East African campaign. Disbanded in 1919, the regiment was re-formed in 1940 during World War II as The Rhodesian African Rifles, seeing action in Burma. In the 1950s, the regiment distinguished itself further during the Malayan Emergency. During the 1960s and 1970s, the regiment was at the forefront of hostilities in the bloody Rhodesian bush war. Ironically, it was after Zimbabwean independence in 1980, that the RARs finest hour came, when, fighting for their erstwhile enemy, Mugabe, the soldiers of the RAR defeated Nkomos invading ZIPRA armies at the battles of Entumbane in Bulawayo. Masodja London launch address - Brigadier D. Heppenstall: 09/11/07 Lord Salisbury, our President, General Lord Michael Walker, the son of our battalion 2ic in Burma in World War 2, honoured guests, members of the Association, ladies and gentlemen. Like the Battle of Waterloo, this has been a close run thing. Yesterday morning I received four copies of Masodja from the printers in Durban, South Africa, by special delivery, and the main consignment only arrived at Heathrow yesterday evening. The main reason for the four by special delivery was so that we could present one of them to Prince Philip when he signed our Regimental Drumskin at lunchtime yesterday. He was most intrigued when Tobias Mutangadura pointed out to him his photograph taken at the Malayan Independence Merdeka celebrations fifty years ago in 1957. Anyway to get back to the main topic, the reasons why we almost didnt succeed in getting the books here for the launch were several. Firstly it was published and printed in South Africa on the one hand and the author and Regimental Association in the UK on the other. This of course prevented close liaison between the two sides although the use of email made things far easier than they used to be. Most of the text was completed by Alex Binda several years ago, although there were gaps in the records available, and more information was received right up to the last minute. Originally we had planned to have the Launch last April to coincide with our Regimental Day, Tanlwe Chaung Day. This was deemed too early, and it was put back to July, the month in which the Regiment was formed. In the meantime, however, in conjunction with Chris Cocks, Alex had written the History of the RLI, The Saints, which had a very impressive Launch last June. Chris Cocks, our publisher at 30 Degrees South, advised us that a July Launch would be too close to the Saints Launch and recommended that it be postponed to Remembrance Weekend which we agreed and set the wheels in motion to hire this hall and invite our VIP guests. Apart from the distance between publishers and originators, other mitigating factors included the sheer volume of photographs of which about 75% have been included. These were still being annotated about ten days before the book went to print! Another major factor which nearly caused a postponement was the bad reaction to a new course of medicine prescribed to Kerrin Cocks. This resulted in her being rushed into intensive care followed by a two week break to recuperate. Kerrin is a vital cog in the 30 Degrees South machine, but was soon back on line to rush things through. Pinetown Printers in Durban did a great job in completing those books which we have here today, and in fact they were working 24 hours over the whole of last weekend. We owe a debt of gratitude to all involved in the publication, to Chris and Kerrin Cocks for their expertise, to Pinetown Printers and to Bill Welsh for acting as our Marshal Blucher and arriving with the books in the nick of time. Apart, of course, from Alex Binda, I owe a special thank you to John Hopkins, Iain Harper, Bridget Wells-West and all those who supplied photographs and reminiscences of their time in the Regiment. I would now like to deal with our four members whom we invited over from Zimbabwe. This has been possible due to the magnificent support given by the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League who paid all their expenses. Our four who came over are: Captain Machakada Patrick Nelomwe: He attested in time to go to the Canal Zone, Egypt, with 1RAR in 1952, and has subsequently seen service in Malaya, the Nyasaland Emergency, the Congo border and the Rhodesian bush war. He rose from company clerk in A Company to ORQMS in the 1st Battalion in 1980. He was commissioned, subsequently in the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA). Major Tobias Chenharu Mutangadura DMM: A member of the Rhodesian Army Education Corps who served almost all his time with 1RAR. By 1980 he was a WO1 and had been awarded the Defence Forces Medal for Meritorious Service (DMM). He was commissioned in the ZNA, and retired as major. He was curator of the Gweru Military Museum for several years. RSM Gibson Zanago Mugadza BCR: A very talented half back in my battalion football team in his younger days. In the Rhodesian bush war he was awarded the Bronze Cross of Rhodesia (BCR) for outstanding leadership and bravery in action. He retired from the Army after 1980 as RSM at the School of Infantry, Gwelo. RSM Obert Veremu DMM: Obert was in my platoon in Malaya where he was a junior NCO, leading scout and tracker. That was exactly 50 years ago. He rose steadily through the ranks, was a champion 110 mile marcher and was awarded his DMM in 1972. He was RSM 1RAR from 1977 to 1978 and 3RAR from its formation in 1978 until after independence when he retired and went farming. The four are ideally situated throughout the country. Patrick is in Bulawayo, Tobias in Gweru, Gibson in Harare and Obert in the Vumba. They will be able to tell all our old comrades that the Regiment is still very much alive! I must now emphasise that the main reason that they arrived here at all is thanks to Lt-Col Malcolm Clewer, the Chairman of our Association in Zimbabwe and also the Chairman of the Harare Branch of the Legion
Hello parents! My name is Kathryn and I am currently living in Gent, Belgium as an Au Pair to two Flemish girls of 5 and 6 years old. I'm absolutely loving my experience here and will be au pairing in Munich, Germany from the end of July 2016. My own parents live in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. I will be home from 15 June-23 July 2016 and I am looking for an au pairing/babysitting job for that time. English is my home language. I can also speak conversational Dutch, German and French. I have a Master of Arts degree (specialising in Linguistics) from the University of Cape Town and I recently finished a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course. Before I began au pairing in Belgium, I was working as the communications and events coordinator at a law firm in Westlake. I have a passion for learning and teaching. I have tutored two 9 year old girls - helped them with their homework for all subjects, practised English and Afrikaans reading with them and helped them prepare for tests and oral presentations. I have also assisted in a high school drama department for 5 years as an acting coach and I have done drama classes and choreography at a preparatory school. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, acting and directing, listening to music, crafts, hiking, cycling, travelling, baking and learning new skills. I love animals and discovering new places. I am a creative, caring, independent and reliable young woman with a passion for meeting people. I am outgoing, gentle and vigilant with a good sense of humour. I am 26 years old. I have a valid South African driver's license (I've been driving for over 5 years) but I will not have my own car while I am in South Africa. I am available full-time/part-time, live-in/live-out or as an occasional babysitter. My hourly rate is negotiable.

Effectively acting as Star Wars: Episode III and a half, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed puts players in the role of Darth Vader’s Secret Apprentice in and all new adventure that bridges the gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Armed with an over-the-top arsenal of Force powers, players follow the Apprentice through his journey of vengeance and redemption, villainy and heroism, as he travels the galaxy with the crew of his starship, the Rogue Shadow. Taken by Vader at a young age, the Secret Apprentice is raised as a slave of the Dark Side, but as he hurtles towards his destiny that will have far reaching implications for Star Wars continuity, he will discover much about his past and his future. In the course of the game, the player will travel from planet to planet hunting down all remaining Jedi for Darth Vader. Each location (the junk planet Raxus Prime, densely forested Kashyyyk, organic fungal Felucia, and other surprise areas) has new enemies that require different Force powers to defeat, and so the player gains access to them at the start of each new level. For example, most enemies on Raxus are mechanical, so the player learns Force Lightning at the start of the level to exploit this. In addition to the Force Powers, players can use the customization screen to purchase different Force Combos, which combine lightsaber moves with Force Powers and even include several grapple moves. All of these abilities can be powered up in the customization screen, which also has options for tweaking the lightsaber and choosing among several different costumes. The game rewards players for defeating enemies in flashy ways, using Force powers and the environment instead of simply hacking with the lightsaber. Different “bonuses” are awarded to the player based on how enemies were defeated – for example, a “Crush Bonus” for slamming an enemy into (and subsequently destroying) a piece of the environment, or a “Long Way Down Bonus” for sending an enemy flying off a cliff. These bonuses increase the player’s Force Points, which work like experience points to level up; then once Level Up is achieved, the player receives Combo, Talent, and Ability spheres which can be spent on the aforementioned customization screen in order to gain new abilities and boost attack/defense-related stats. Additionally, the game makes use of an “Action camera” whenever enemies are defeated in particularly brutal ways, which briefly pauses the action to show an enemy hurtling to his death. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the Force Unleashed are the first games to use LucasArts’ Ronin engine, which combines theHavokphysics engine, Natural Motion’sEuphoriaAI, and Pixelux’s Digital Molecular Matter (DMM), which allows enemies to react with fluid animation and self-preserving AI (such as grabbing on to ledges and dodging projectiles), and objects in the environment to bend, stretch and shatter based on their material properties. The versions for other versions simulate the effects, but do not actually include the modules.
