The Screen Acting Studio was created with the sole purpose of teaching acting for the camera. We don’t teach theatre, we’re not doing stand-up or hosting. Other studios do that. This is a place for screen acting — and learning what is necessary to get the job on TV or in a film, no matter the genre, budget, or setting.
Aaron Speiser has been teaching thousands of actors for over 35 years. He has mentored some of the biggest names in the business, and his wisdom from years of work on set and in the studio are unparalleled. His partner and protegé Kay Aston has decades of experience as an actor and acting coach, and has helped many clients book professional work.
For the advanced, professional actor, by application only. This is a deep dive into script, character, human behavior, and psychology. Actors prepare scenes from television and film scripts as if they are preparing to shoot them on set. Similar to a professional shoot, no advance rehearsal is allowed, although students may run lines. Our goal is to help you create a process that allows you to show up to work, fully prepared.
Scene Study applies the techniques of screen acting to scene work. Advanced Technique is a pre-requisite, unless previous training is sufficient. This class is a bridge from technique into practical application. Students will learn and practice a regular process to break down scripts, work on character, and create truthful behavior in the imaginary circumstances.
This class is foundational, teaching the vital elements of screen acting. The perfect class for actors who are talented but still developing their skills, who may not have many credits or experience, but are ready to deepen their work. Specifically for screen acting.
This class will give you the fundamental knowledge to understand the business side of acting: marketing, headshots, reels, casting directors, agents/managers, and relationships. We will practice auditioning and discuss the casting process.
