QUOTES FROM TELEVISION PRODUCERS
Kylie Washington- BBC Studios Director of Production Aust
‘Sancia is a total talent. Her ability to spot talent, and develop clear communication and trust is second to none. A true professional, always over delivering.’
Susie Jones – Commissioning Editor SBS documentaries
Sancia has a very grounded and deep understanding of the entertainment business; this is a unique position for someone moving in the teaching as her experience isn’t based on supposition but actuality. She has a wide lens when it comes to finding talents for shows and can see outside the “usual suspects”. This has helped give a vast array of people opportunities who sit outside the mainstream a place on Australian TV. I imagine she will bring the same create vision to her students which will ensure those from diverse backgrounds learn to see this as a strength is not something to be modified. She is extremely emotionally intelligent and empathetic both skills that her brilliant at recognising talent and potential in other people. She backs talent completely and will invest a huge amount of her energy to sure they have everything they need to convert their opportunities. She has courage and kindness in her and understands the business of television extremely well. I cannot speak highly enough of Sancia’s professionalism, passion and work ethic etc.
Anthony Watt- Executive Producer CHANNEL NINE - (The Footy Show) ABC TV (Spicks and Specks)
Sancia is always the first person I ask to be my casting director. Her instincts in providing a great mix or people that work well together on a panel is second to none. Her passion in finding new talent as well as people from diverse backgrounds is vital. And her ability in keeping talent happy through long and often tedious days is essential.
Todd Abbott- Director of Programs and Development Guesswork Television-

“Sancia is an alchemist who can take the most surprising mix of raw elements and turn them into gold. She has an innate ability to identify, inspire and empower talent, to make people feel comfortable and to fill them with confidence. She is all about trust and honesty – actors, comedians, musicians and presenters trust her to help them sculpt amazing performances, and to be honest about working with their strengths and their weaknesses. She has a rare mix of skills – actor, teacher, producer, director and top quality human – which means that she is always the first person you call when you’re building a TV show.” —

COMMENTS FROM PARENTS AND STUDENTS
“Just wanted to offer some feedback regarding this term. Ed absolutely loved working with Sancia and has been returning home each week buzzing and excited to tell us what they got up to and what he learned. He's a happy chap and whatever she was doing seemed to really fit with his personality and bring out the best in him. Congratulations to Sancia for being so intuitive and wonderful.”
“I just wanted to thank you. You have had an amazing impact on Samantha and she’s learnt soooo much from her time with you. She has absolutely loved every minute of your classes. You’ve lit an acting passion within her and she’s so determined and focused on learning. She really wanted to tell you that but she couldn’t get the words out!! I really hope she gets the opportunity to learn from you again.”
“If you get the chance to work with Sancia Robinson you simply MUST! Sancia is a world class teacher and communicator who celebrates you as an individual and just encourages you more and more that you are enough. Her knowledge of BTS in the film/tv industry is second to none and it is vital education for anyone wanting to work. Aside from technique classes Sancia is also fantastic for goal setting and taking active steps to get to where you want to be. Sancia provides a complete package with her training, and makes everything seem accessible, manageable and enjoyable. I recommend Sancia to anyone that wants to enjoy the craft and challenge themselves."
“Sancia is truly an amazing acting teaching. Through her engagement of the class she motivates and encourages all students including myself to step out of our comfort zone and act roles that we aren't used to. Sancia herself has also provided a lot of support in helping me get out and break my shell of repetitiveness in humour and expand to a more serious form of acting rather than always satirical. Sancia's ability to demonstrate and always assist any student after class in need is also very inspiring due to her warm nature further motivating and inspiring students to pursue and break their comfort zones.”
“Sancia Robinson taught me so much in a really little amount of time, I can’t imagine what kind of actor I would be if she taught me for the whole year!! She helped me get out of my comfort zone while teaching the class so many amazing skills and life lessons. I would be lucky to have her as a teacher and I feel so honoured to have been one of her students. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and I really do hope that I will see her in the future!!”
"Given Sancia's vast experience in the industry, Sancia is a real actor's coach. She has an incredible eye when working with actors in shaping their character work and finding the layers of truth behind it. Sancia was an instrumental coach and mentor at the start of my film and TV career in Melbourne in encouraging me to take creative risks, in finding the layers of depth in my work and given her infectious energy, inspiring me to work with lightness."
