A HOME FOR THE ACTOR.  
A RESOURCE TO THE FILM INDUSTRY FOR READY TO WORK ACTORS
 

SO YOU CAN ACT, BUT CAN YOU GET A JOB?

We provide real world situational training. 

The Actors Academy is a uniquely customized program where you learn the techniques of camera competence, set training, and industry savvy. You will be taught to become master story-tellers.

 

Students work every week from day one. All students are filmed and receive their work to study at home.

 

Classes include a professionally lit studio (we make you look great on camera!) We have top of the line high-def cameras. A boom for sound and a smart tv monitor to see everything that is being taped. (Sometimes you will learn more from just watching!)

     Classes will work on:

  • Props and Marks 

  • On Set Training 

  • Auditioning

  • Camera Techniques

  • The 7 essential skills and fundamentals for scene preparation.

  • Exercises including- The Repeat Method, Paraphrasing, and Structured improv.

  • Chemistry Reads

  • Working actors come to work out, impart their knowledge, and learn how to carry a scene. There is no separation among levels, (like on set.)

  •  Members of the Academy are invited to participate in showcases for some of the industry's top casting directors- who use the Academy as a resource for their projects. 

CLASS SCHEDULE:  Every Monday from 2pm to 8pm
