Blaze Models hosts Self-Tape and Commercial Modelling Workshops for Teens and Adults at our office in Randburg.  These workshops are open to anyone 13 years and older.  You don't have to be a model with Blaze Models to attend these workshops.


These workshops are presented by acting coach Stanimir Stoykov.  He has a Master’s degree in Film and TV. He is currently employed as the Drama and Digital Literacy teacher at the Crawford Italia school.


Stanimir lectured in Film Theory, History and Directing for two years. He has been involved in the Film and TV industry for the past twenty years in various capacities like performing, producing and directing; but his primary focus has been on his work as a Casting Director for countless commercials, feature films and TV series - including the Netflix production Blood and Water.  His independent theatre and film work has gathered somewhat of a cult status. Over the past twenty years Stanimir has collaborated with some of South Africa’s finest award-winning talents like Robert Whitehead, Grethe Fox, Nomsa Buthelezi, Tamara Dey, Amra Faye Wright and Sibusiso Radebe.


These workshops include theory and practical exercises. 

Remarks from some of our attendees:

"The workshop really helped me understand where I need to improve and how I should be applying myself better. It gave me the tools necessary to enable me to be better at castings." Candice

"I would highly recommend this workshop to any novice in the film and modeling industry."  Farzana
