The Acting Corps Reviews

Rainn Wilson

“The Acting Corps and the Actors’ Boot Camp challenges actors to reach deeper and deeper and develop a reliable technique that immediately translates to working on a film or TV show. Artistic Director Eugene Buica is the best acting teacher I know of in Los Angeles, and he has put together a remarkable acting school. Go there.”

"I support The Acting Corps and the kind of acting classes you teach. It’s true, you don’t need to go to acting school forever in order to learn the craft.”

"Eugene Buica is a great teacher who truly wants his students out of the classroom and onto the set. The master class is about mastering the enjoyment of what we do as actors. Eugene wants you to have fun… wants you to remember the reason we got into this biz and acting school isn’t a place to hide.  Yes, it’s hard work, yes you have to persist, and yes, you have to love it, but please remember to have fun. Thanks, Eugene."

"It has been a privilege for me to take classes at The Acting Corps. It is a safe place, an acting school where your creative mind and body are both nourished and challenged. After just 3 months in The Advanced Program, I booked my dream job – a lead in a major motion picture. I would literally not be where I am today if it hadn’t been for the help of the school, teachers, and Eugene Buica. Eugene is on a mission to explore and encourage the journey of an actor’s development. Here is a chance to overcome the fears every actor faces, and replace them with the invaluable tools needed to conquer the acting world."

“The Acting Corps is a unique and serious school. It has taught me the fundamentals of acting and continues to teach and nurture me as an actress. This a school for people serious about their craft and willing to put in the time and effort to realize their goals. Everyone involved is dedicated and excited. It’s wonderful to have teachers that really care since it impacts the students so much. I have studied at various schools in L.A., but have come to feel at home here. The Daily Acting Workout keeps me sharp as an actress and the Boot Camps are really well structured programs.

All I can say is, the style of this school, the serious approach, professionalism, respect and love of true acting has inspired me as a person, making me a much better actress.”

“The Acting Corps is one of the best acting schools in the country for the simple reason that its teachers never lose sight of the bigger picture – placing integrity of craft and true growth over quick shortcuts and cheap gimmicks. Wherever you are as an actor, or think you are, this is the place to explore and be challenged to find that magic you seek.”

“Before The Acting Corps, I felt something was missing in my work. I wasn’t having any more fun with it nor getting any better at it. The Acting Corps classes allowed me to play again and remember why I got into acting in the first place. I started booking jobs every single month because I was able to immediately use what I learned in the classes in my auditions. I love The Acting Corps for that instant gratification!”

“Finally! I found a strong, solid acting class in LA. Eugene Buica is one of the best acting teachers I’ve had so far as an artist. He has structured The Acting Corps to cover almost every aspect of the actor’s career, from technique and scene study to the business of acting, in the most nurturing environment I’ve ever experienced. Eugene and his staff of teachers are amazing, encouraging and completely tuned in to the specific needs of each actor, what a prize this school is for any actor at any level!”

“The Acting Corps gave me a safe environment to play fearlessly, discover new continents within and fly with mad abandon. At the same time it is a place grounded in reality, where you get the truth about the industry from people who are out there doing it right now and tell it like it is.”

“I came from Ireland to be in Boot Camp and had such an amazing time at The Acting Corps. Before beginning the program, I had very little confidence in myself and my technique. I was working on and off as an actress but never really committed. Thanks to the wonderful facilitators, especially Diana, I found the passion within myself that drives my addiction to “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”

I also met some extraordinary people there with whom I made very strong connections.

On returning to Dublin, I was cast in the Irish prime time TV show, “Fair City“. I got five weeks of work and am enjoying every minute of it, even the hanging around! I hope to return to Los Angeles and continue with Boot Camp II.”
