The accomplishments of the NIC Acting alumni speak for themselves. This award-winning student body will continue to shine. We challenge you to join the next generation.


“This program meant everything to me, they welcomed me with open arms and taught me how to know who I am as a person. I wouldn’t be where I am today without New Image. I was taught by teachers that work in the Industry themselves this is priceless. NIC got me an agent and I booked a TV series lead 4 months after finishing school. DREAM’s really do come true, always follow your dream and don’t be afraid to go for it.”

“To reach a dream it takes hard work, dedication and a fearlessness to undertake a path that everyone else finds too difficult. Once you get there you will be sore, battered and bruised. However, you’ll be among the few that can say they truly do something they love.”
