Marbella Film School is a sister company of Perth Film School which was founded in 2012 after Nicole Moerland journeyed to Perth, Australia following a screen acting career in Europe and in the United States of America.
As Nicole began developing her acting career in Australia, she was approached by a number of key industry people requesting that she teach her unique acting skills to students in Western Australia.
A handful of students quickly grew into a number of regular and fully booked classes. After 5 years of running Perth Film School, Nicole decided it was time to return to the place she was raised, Marbella in SPAIN, to share her passion for Screen Acting. Hence, Marbella Film School was born.
NICOLE MOERLAND (FOUNDER)
Nicole Moerland is intensely passionate about film and acting, since first getting involved in drama as a teenager.
In 2004, at the young age of 20, Nicole was accepted as a student at the prestigious Stella Adler Academy of Acting in Los Angeles. She graduated from Stella Adler Academy of Acting in 2007.
Following graduation, Nicole was fortunate to work with some of the world’s most talented actors including Rutger Hauer, Mark Ruffalo as well as director Peter Yates.
She has worked and lived in Holland, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States of America, gaining valuable experience from a range of talented actors and directors. Nicole is also a talented writer and is currently working on a feature film and a short film script to be shot in Australia.
THE STELLA ADLER TECHNIQUE
Marbella Film School is proud to bring the world renowned ‘Stella Adler Technique’ to Perth Students.
Stella Adler believed that an actor’s talent lies with his/her imagination and visualization. The theatre and film actress turned teacher, trained with Stanislavsky and studied the method, but didn’t believe that an actor needed to relive past experiences to connect with the script.
Her technique style has been studied by many renowned actors including as:
Robert De Niro, Elaine Stritch, Martin Sheen, Diana Muldaur, Dolores del Rio, Roy Scheider, Vincent D’Onofrio, Mark Ruffalo, Warren Beatty , Michael Imperioli, Salma Hayek, Sean Astin, Barbara Stuart, Joyce Meadows, Stephen Bauer and Benicio del Toro, in addition to Marlon Brando, who served as the New York studio’s Honorary Chairman until his death, and was replaced by another pupil, Warren Beatty.
The acting schools which Adler founded still operate today in New York City and Los Angeles.
