Always a crowd pleaser. Eric will deliver a two week commercial intensive starting May 9, 2016, reserve your seat now!
Our Friday Night Salons are routinely remarkable and inspire others to come perform. Witness one artist who upon viewing our last salon decided to perform in this salon delighting us with his singing and piano prowess. Come and get inspired…what will you do?
If Bob Dylan was right when he said “The highest purpose of art is to inspire,” then you’ve come to the right place. Salons inspire, they inspire artists to do more art. When you perform at a salon you may be inspiring someone and not even know it…stealth inspiration! Come join us!
Part of our ongoing Inside the Industry Pro Series, Seth Green graciously gave his time to give us insight into the industry. Oh and it was hilarious! It’s hard to describe how much Seth wants to help other actors, truly a humanitarian. Look for the video on indi.com coming soon.
Another successful Salon at The Acting Center! The amount of talent and inspiration makes one wonder…maybe they’ve got something there at The Acting Center!
The first performance from our new Production Class was as it’s name implies an evening of monologues. The tongue-in-cheek name, inspired by the popular “Vagina Monologues” brought performances from all genres. These monologues were performed the traditional minimalist sense where the stage is mostly bare and the focus is completely on the actor. Live audience members as well as our Periscope viewers felt the impact. Look forward to upcoming performances from our Production Class!
Our July Salon did not disappoint, in fact it inspired and enlivened our live audience as well as our Periscope viewers! A packed show showcasing all genres from funny to gritty. Be a part of our next Salon as they are a great place for anyone to come and perform whether students or not.
As part of our ongoing Inside the Industry Pro Series, Juliette Lewis graciously gave her time to talk with us. Sharing valuable insight into her start and upward progression up the Hollywood ladder she also recounted humorous but insightful “unfortunate” events as well
The Inside the Industry Pro Series is an ongoing series of lectures free to the general public which spotlights an actor with an indelible career giving great insight into what it takes to stay the course and maintain an acting career with longevity.
Our June Salon brought young and old to the stage and hence to the audience! Music, monologues, scenes, stand-up comedy and improv from those just starting out to seasoned veterans. Salons are a great place for anyone to come and perform whether students or not. Our Periscope viewing audience also enjoyed the evening.
In our most recent Inside the Industry Seminar on Saturday, April 11th we really went inside the industry!
The co-founders of Casting About (which is now part of Breakdown Services), Brian Wold and Blair Hickey took us behind the casting curtain to see what the Casting Directors see when they get an actor’s submission on Breakdowns Services.
It was surprising how many submissions casting can receive for a single role and learning about how fast the process goes. They also had some amazing marketing tips on branding yourself and creating relationships in the industry.
We all work together in this industry and getting to know the people you work with is really a good idea. It was truly a pleasure to have Brian and Blair present this information at The Acting Center. We will have them back again later in the year if you missed this one.
