MISKAR CHOMSE’S BODY AND MIND SCORES FESTIVAL WINS
Masker Chomse’s career features his collaborations in the television series, ’Binnelanders’ –and this year Chomse wrote, produced and directed the festival winning film, ‘Body & Mind’.
Born in South Africa, Miskar Chomse was inspired to pursue the craft of acting and filmmaking by the productions of Guy Ritchie’s ‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ and ‘Snatch’, Luc Besson’s ‘The Fifth Element’ and ‘Leon’, and Martin Scorsese’s ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Casino’, and the acting performances of Tom Hanks. Chomse is classically and professionally trained, studying at Trinity College London earning the levels of Associate, and Licentiate in Speech and Drama, and a Masters in Acting for Film. Chomse is recognized for his excellence in movement, mime, voice, Shakespeare, improv, Stanislavski technique and Meisner Technique, voice over, and stand up.
“I am a very technical actor. And I only have my training to thank for that. Years and years of hard work, warm-ups, and improvisation have taught me a lot of the ins and outs of acting technique.”
The highlights of Chomse’s career include when he starred in the acclaimed South African television series, ‘Binnelanders’. He is also the driving force behind the successful film, ‘Body & Mind’, as the writer, producer, director and the star of the film –which most recently won Bronze Medals at the Independent Shorts Awards in LA for Best Original Story and Best Sci-Fi Short, as well as being nominated for Best Original Story at the Indie Short Fest in LA. It doesn’t get any bigger than this!
Chomse’s advice to fellow actors and artists is, “Never stop learning. This world, this life is so full of diverse and unique experiences. Do that thing that you’re afraid to do.”
