Biography

From a young age, Woodman loved performance art in many forms. She started drama classes while still in primary school and continued as a part of many performance schools either in or outside of school. At the end of 2010, Woodman moved up to Johannesburg from Durban to attend the National School of the Arts in Braamfontein and completed 3 years of performance training there.

In her gap year, Woodman participated in several projects namely working with The Rocky Horror Show and Call me Lee in the Pieter Torien Theatre; as well as working from pre-production to performance for I Have Life at the Theatre on the Square in Nelson Mandela Square.

In 2015, Woodman began her studies at AFDA Johannesburg specialising in writing and, ultimately, sound design. Woodman recently graduated with honours cum laude . In her time there, Woodman worked on many short films both within and above her year group. She was also consulted on costume and character design during her time there as she takes a large interest in construction and creation of characters, especially in terms of makeup.

Woodman discovered cosplay when she was rather young as well and, as a child who loved dressing up, immersed herself in the world. Woodman has always had a fascination with the art form and has gathered a large amount of knowledge and understanding of the culture. Combined with an intense interest and love of anime and manga, Woodman is perfectly placed to assess the costumes and stage performances of our WCS teams.
