Panorama Academy has long been the vision of Panorama CEO, Lene Seested. For over 10 years, as a leading casting director, Lene saw firsthand the challenges of many emerging young talents having landed film and television roles only to find themselves facing difficulties breaking into the industry and finding their opportunity. Lene saw opportunity and realised that she could bridge the gap for these young actors to find their path into the industry.
From this realization, and her many successes in creating breakthroughs opportunities for both child and young talent, Lene launched ‘New Generation’. New Generation soon became the go-to place where international casting directors scouted for new, young talents to receive fill leading roles for their film and TV series. New Generation began to receive more applications than we could have ever been imagined, and soon, we were developing more classes to meet the demand. This was the genesis of Panorama Academy… and now the dream of mentoring these young actors at an academy has become reality.
With over 25 years as a leading agent, manager and industry pioneer, Lene has built a unique set of skills, knowledge and intuition which allows Panorama Academy to create a program specifically tailored to your prior experience and former studio training ranging from level I to level II.
Common to all levels and the style of teaching is our company philosophy:
We guide and work with the wholesome person; it is paramount that individuals pay attention to their inner self – that they are healthy human beings who are aware of their own bodies and minds, and that they pay attention to the artist they are – and more importantly, the professional business they embody. Therefore a significant part of the program is applied to learning and understanding the business elements such as contracts, salary levels, taxes, etc.
Panorama Academy has created an environment in which actors can thrive, test themselves – and dream. Dreams do come true.
Here at Panorama Academy, the sky is the limit. We will guide you in planning how to reach your dreams, and assist you in creating an individualized strategy – this will be your personal recipe to follow and adjust on your path to success.

Participate routinely, and generously show courage and emotions in your scene-work – collaboration implies that you don’t just raise your own bar, but also that of your fellow class actors. We expect all Academy actors to participate in creating a positive atmosphere in the individual classes where there is room for diversity. Show up on time and give it your all. Embrace and be ready to grasp the chance – should it be right in front of you.
