ABOUT SEBASTIAN ANGBORN
Based in Sydney, I am a Swedish born Australian who eats, lives and breathes story. Having started acting at the age of 8 as a way to learn English, I was fortunate enough to be granted a full scholarship at the Australian Acting Academy before progressing to further study at Young Actors Studio NIDA and the Atlantic Theatre Company (NYC).
Further to my acting studies, I completed my Bachelor of Film and Television Production at Bond University, specializing in Cinematography and Screenwriting. I then went on to a year-long screenwriting mentorship with Ph.D. candidate on Gnostic Philosophy in Western Cinema, and current Associate Chair of Film at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Mr Shawn Kasinger.
To date, I have appeared in Television and Film Production which have screened in over 50 countries, provided script consultation services to short films which have won dozens of awards, as well as optioned my first feature script.
Alongside my creative career, I have served as the Senior Academic Manager for the New York Film Academy in Australia, developing and coordinating some of the intense hands-on acting and film curricula in Australia.I have additionally taught acting and content structure at the National Theatre Academy of Romania and at various institutions in the United Kingdom.
I bring care, energy and creativity to every project I attach myself to, and I am always up for a new creative challenge.
