The Origin of the Actors’ Boot Camp®
In 1999 I invited a handful of students, that I was teaching one night a week, to a park (more like a patch of grass) in Burbank and told them it would be free to attend, but they would have to come every day. I explained to them about The Actors’ Boot Camp and that our purpose would be to see how far we would go as actors both creatively and professionally if we committed to working on our acting every day, made it the most important thing in our lives, and helped and supported one another along the way.
As it turns out, today, the Actors’ Boot Camp has trained over three thousand actors, guided, nurtured, and supported many acting careers, and over one thousand of our actors have booked professional film and television work after attending The Actor’s Boot Camp – now they are all prominently listed on imdb.com.
We have also left the park (we actually have some pretty fancy digs – three theaters, and so on), and we have assembled what is widely regarded as the best acting company in Los Angeles as we enjoy the highest honor of all – we are imitated by everyone. We thank you for your continuing support and dedication.
