If you are trying to get a agent and audition for Television and Film roles don't waste your time at this place. They try to hype you up with there celebrity photos trying to take credit for the fame and fortune the actors have gained. I went there for six months and all I learned is scene study and character developement. That is part of acting but it is not everything. The classes are $25 a session. The class has no structure and the classes can last up to 6 hours. You end up going up once. The teachers encourage you to really slap each other and every student seems to think that doing a curse scene makes them a better actor. The actors learn to develope a huge ego and are taught to believe they own the role. It is the silliest thing.
There Showcase events on Thursday are a joke and are used to keep you going. They claim the guest watching the showcase are in need of hiring actors. If they were they would go through a casting service. They would call me every week to let me know of who was the so call guest at there showcase. They used this tactic to keep the money coming in. It came to a point were the calls became annoying.
I have had interviews with different agents and most of them have frowned on there methods. They have said that the studio does not teach the actors about the business.
