Join the Academy


JOIN YOUR CASTING ACADEMY’S PART TIME SCREEN ACTING PROGRAM

The more you train, the more skills you will acquire. The larger scope of skills you have, the more diverse you will be.

By joining our Academy part time, we will make you into a diverse actor capable of booking every job offered in film, television, commercials, and animation, including voice work in video games and radio. We will make you into an actor who has the skill set to book jobs offered in these platforms which will give you greater chances of sustaining an acting career.

We feel that many acting schools offer an insufficient, ineffective curriculum by teaching classes that just don’t apply to the actor’s job market, wasting the actor’s time.

We cut to the chase by providing the actor with targeted training that focuses only the skills needed for jobs that are primarily hot and current in the market.

We keep it simple and in only 2 semesters, 28 weeks, you will get:

  • The skill set to work as a professional actor in film and television
  • The skill set to work as a professional actor in voice work: video games, animation, and radio/podcasts
  • The skill set to perform stunts
  • The skill set to perform motion capture work in the video game industry
  • The skill set to win and book auditions
  • The skill set to market yourself, get an agent, become unionized and to keep those relationships strong and healthy
  • The skill set to write creatively and promote independent film making including how to produce your own film and bring it forward to festivals
  • The skill set to produce theatre shows

So if you want to become a working actor, then you came to the right place.
