This class meets once a week. Each week we will focus on a different element of the acting process from script analysis to shooting the final product. All assignments are projects that are recently or currently casting so that you are focusing on the industry TODAY.
Week One: Auditions and Text Analysis – You have the script, now WHAT DO YOU DO? Without a deep understanding of text analysis, you are ignoring the careful cues provided to us by brilliant (and very well paid) writers. This week we focus on how to use this knowledge to craft our performance.
Week Two: Connecting, or the Art of Being a Human – Traditional acting training HAS IT’S PLACE in Hollywood. The search for “Truth” is just as valid in LA as it was for Stanislavski and Meisner and all those who came after. This week, we connect to the material, we find the character in ourselves, gain access to our emotional core, and do it FAST.
Week Three: The Camera is my Friend – So few actors love this insanely valuable tool. Many shy away from it because they don’t understand how it works and how it can make us look brilliant. This week we tape, we work, we watch, WE LEARN TO LOVE!
Week Four: One on Ones – The fourth week is a one on one guided half hour meeting with your teacher to GET DEEP INTO YOUR NEEDS. This is your time to talk about an agent meeting, go over an audition, or conquer that Shakespeare monologue! This class is all about taking a direct approach to making you a stronger, more confident actor.
To Sign Up: PURCHASE THE ALL INCLUSIVE!
In traditional classes we study movement, voice, our relationship to space. As Film and Television actors, we need to learn to use these skills in conjunction with our most valuable tool, the Camera.
This class meets once a week for the first three weeks. Throughout the month, we work on, audition technique, general camera technique, and full scene work, ENTIRELY ON CAMERA! You will watch your first take in class and perform the scenes a second time. You will have access to your second take after the class to review your improvement.
Our fourth week, as in our All Inclusive classes, is a 30 minute guided meeting with your teacher. This is your time to get deep into your needs, ask the burning questions, and get what you need to make you a stronger, more confident performer.
We tape, we work, we watch!

NEW TO THE HOUSE?!
Following the same structure as our signature class, The All Inclusive (see above), this class delves into the way we work and the vocabulary we use here at Actors House.
This class makes sure we are all on the same page, speaking the same language, and reminds us to be passionate about our art AND diligent about the business of acting. We pride ourselves on helping the actor craft the approach that works best for them, using everything from elements of Stanislavsky to delving into the fundamentals of text analysis and the building blocks of comedy.
We will also focus on the business of the business and give you a crash course to set you up for success.
