General Information

Auditioning for TV, Film and Commercials in Hollywood is an essential skill for any aspiring actor to develop. Simply being a good actor is not enough to book the job. A successful working actor must master the auditioning portion of their craft. They must have a solid understanding on how to perform for the camera to maximize communicating their interpretation of the role through to casting, producers and directors who are sitting on the other side watching. Eye lines, micro-expressions, body positions, thoughts are all essential parts of this equation. Any student who wishes to pursue a career in acting must train in their audition skills as well as their acting techniques.

Our TV/Film/Commercial Acting class welcomes students of all levels. Students with previous acting training in theater will learn how to adjust their existing techniques for camera.
