Scene Study for Actors

Scene study, revolutionized

In the fast-paced, competitive world of Hollywood, actors are asked to not only be remarkably skilled, but to prepare roles for auditions or performances quickly —sometimes the same day.

For television, you are often given new script pages the morning of the shoot. Sitcoms often rewrite lines and jokes in front of the live studio audience. You don’t have time for coaches, days of memorization or endless scene rehearsal—you have to be prepared to deliver a great performance—now.

When you have mastered our revolutionary scene study technique, you will not only be able to deliver a great performance, you’ll be able to change direction at a moment’s notice.

With this acting technique, a casting director’s request for you to audition for a different character than the one you prepared, an unexpected script change or a director asking you to switch gears in front of the camera becomes something you’ll easily handle.

And last-minute auditions with no time to prepare will become something you can handle with ease.

Knowing our fundamentals, you’ll also experience new confidence. Instead of questioning your choices or wondering if you could have “done more,” you’ll know how to approach a role with tools you can rely on during auditions, performances and on set.
