"Something clicks in every class. It’s an amazing feeling - knowing that you are going to learn something profound but you are yet to have any idea of what that is until it happens. I return each week excited knowing that I am about to experience this."
Once you are ready, this course will instruct you on how to approach an agent in a professional manner and how to look good in the audition room once you start getting auditions.
These modern acting techniques have actors looking highly professional in the fast moving world of TV and film production. Older approaches, originally designed for actors who worked in the theatre, aren't easily adaptable to modern schedules. These skills will have you working quickly and effectively - essential for the modern screen actor.
Both Actor's Agents and Casting Directors have commented that after extensive training actors often can't take direction and make changes. Actors who train at The Rehearsal Room always stand out because of their ability to take direction. These are proven professional skills that work.
Knowing what to expect on a professional set means you won't make obvious mistakes on your first jobs. Understanding what a director requires and how to deliver that is the key. Protocols, etiquette and interpersonal skills are all part of a professional actors skill set.
Once you are a trained actor you are a business commodity. You need to know what you are selling and how to sell it. Understanding how show business works and how you will fit into it is the key to being both happy and successful. This course will set you on the right footing to achieving those goals.
Once actors are ready we will shoot one showreel scene to give you the best chance of displaying your skills to a potential agent. An agent generally won't consider signing an actor unless they can see their work in a showreel scene. It is essential to have at least one showreel scene of good quality. For $460 we will shoot and edit a scene for you of professional standard (costs are often around $999 for such a service).

Actors who have studied at other institutions are constantly commenting how clear and practical this approach to acting is. It gives actors the ability to make highly professional and very effective choices quickly. Actors often believe that a director will tell them how to play the scene. This is rarely true. Mostly directors are waiting to see what the actor has to offer. Being able to make great choices and change them quickly is what this approach trains actors to do.
