Benalla's Rhiannon Langeberg could be gracing the big screen in future after securing a place with the Vancouver Film School.ANGELA TOWNSEND May 13, 2013 4:59am
Rhiannon Langeberg may be gracing our screens in the next few years, after securing the rare opportunity of 12 months with the Vancouver Film School in Canada.
Ms Langeberg has recently completed four years with Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE, moving to Benalla from Maryborough in Queensland to do so. She has since completed Certificate 4 in Theatre Arts, followed by a three-year Advanced Diploma Arts (Acting).
Late last year she applied to Vancouver Film School and was told she was ‘more than qualified’ for the program to which she had applied. She then applied for the more advanced course, which involved a video audition, a monologue for camera and answering questions on how she got into acting, and who inspires her.
‘‘It was a huge surprise to find out I was accepted — I’m still in shock,’’ she said.
Ms Langeberg said the main attraction of the Vancouver school was that it was a ‘central hub’ for aspiring actors.
‘‘It’s where a lot of big budget movies are made, such as Twilight,’’ she said.
‘‘Vancouver is basically the Hollywood of Canada.’’
Ms Langeberg is currently working two jobs to save enough money to move to Vancouver by the end of August, while her partner Charlie Williams, who has his own business, is working a second job in the hopes he can join her.
