Everyone wants to get it done quickly. And perhaps the term Actors’ Boot Camp® suggests that you come here, put in your four weeks, and voila, you’re an actor.
Not so fast - yes, you get basic acting technique and scene study, but it’s only the beginning of your acting career.
Having said that, there have been those who go on to book acting jobs after The Actors’ Boot Camp®. But in order to keep getting the jobs, all of these actors also keep training. Think of it like a sport, you can learn the fundamentals of basketball in a few weeks, but to say you’ll get to the NBA without ever practicing again or learning more about the sport is just not how it goes.
Learn MoreYet you have to start somewhere, so you might as well start with the strongest, most concentrated and serious four weeks of acting training anywhere.
Don’t you wish sometimes you had all the time in the world to do what you were meant to do? Well, for those fortunate to have that luxury, the Professional Program combines all of the courses at The Acting Corps.
It’s Boot Camp® I, Boot Camp® II, and 6 months of The Advanced Program. In short, it’s everything we do, meaning 22 hours a week of training, plus rehearsals and shows, for 9 months.
Learn More It’s not for everyone, but it is for those who have dedicated themselves to acting. So make sure your commitment is firm and you know what you want – you are in for the most exhilarating ride of your life.
And yes, for those who come from other countries, we offer a student Visa.
After The Actors Boot Camp®, now that you’ve got the basics, what’s next? You keep repeating the basics until they become you, and you challenge yourself (this time for 8 weeks) with on camera work, advanced technique, scene study, cold reading, mock auditions, and agent interviews.
As you do this you also prepare to go out in the world and book an acting job. That’s right, at the end of The Actors’ Boot Camp® and Boot Camp® II - 12 weeks altogether, you should have all of the acting skills you need to get some kind of acting work. It may not be a lead in a movie with Jennifer Lawrence, but most people do book something.
Learn MoreTo this end Boot Camp II® gives you invaluable business skills, including a unique process of branding yourself. After all, how can you sell yourself to Hollywood if you don’t really know the product?
There are those who come to Hollywood, manage to get an audition, go in hoping for the best, and fail miserably. While there is something to be said for that kind of moxie, there's also something to be said for not burning bridges. Meaning you only get one shot at a relationship with a casting director, director, or producer. So give it your best.
Learn MoreThe Working Actor Package, Boot Camp I and II back to back, giving you everything you need to book the part, including a personalized way to market yourself. It will leave you with one thing: NO EXCUSES. So what are you waiting for?
The Advanced Program is the best training and networking opportunity in Los Angeles for working actors or those just beginning to look for work. How come?
In the first place, all the instructors are working actors. You get to learn practical tools and develop a strong acting technique, which applies to working in film and TV today. Then, you study with teachers whose work you can see on television or at the movies.
Learn MoreOur acting school also provide plenty of opportunities to showcase your talent in front of agents and managers. As a matter of fact, when the Acting Corps has its showcase, it’s the hottest ticket in town. Forty to fifty agents and managers usually attend, and after the last showcase, agents and managers brought in 13 out of our the 15 actors in our show. We challenge anyone to beat those numbers.
Everyone says, is this an exercise class? Yes and no. No, in that it’s not like pumping iron at the gym, but it is exercise in the sense that you work all of the tools you've learned in our acting classes for an entire hour, on your feet.
That’s right, if you haven’t noticed by now, people who are good at anything are good because they’ve done something many times over and over.
Introducing the Talk Like An American class, where instead of losing your accent, you learn a true Standard American accent. By gaining a basic understanding of all accents, how they pertain to communication, and how accent work must be built into your repertory of effective performance skills, this class will help you incorporate accents into your life and acting work.
Learn MoreAll class participants will learn the essential sounds of Standard American English speech, how to listen for and use speech sounds, how to master the physical actions of speech, and most importantly, how to speak like an American.
