Any Actor who's been in the business for an amount of years, knows that the most important resource an Actor has next to his/her pictures is his/her training.
Shoddy training can make you a shoddy actor, while excellent training (and working on your craft) can make you an excellent Actor.
This is why I recommend ActOne Studios to everyone I talk to in the Business. All the teachers there are WORKING Actors & Directors themselves, and the quality of their classes are exemplary.
In my case, the tools I developed and techniques I learned there, gave me a feeling of ease and a look of the true professional when I walked into my first Industrial, and commercial auditions.
I truly believe that many of the roles I am getting now, are due to the training I received at ActOne (and my own talent of course!) A year after taking classes at ActOne, I now average 2 well paid gigs per month.
One of the greatest memories I have is at the end of the shooting of my 1st Industrial Film, where I was featured, The director turned to me and said, "It's really nice to work with a true professional actor, who knows what he's doing." I didn't tell him, but I knew what i was doing because of my training at ActOne.
So Thanks Steve, Anne, Connie, Joanne, & Tim. Your instruction have helped make me the WORKING actor I am today.
