In The Moment Acting Studio is a complete SCAM! The guy who runs In The Moment Acting Studio, come from JRP (John Robert Powers) and does the exact same thing JRP does, but only on a smaller scale. The person who runs the studio, just so happens to provide actors with acting classes, headshots, shooting reels for actors, managment representation and agent representation. For one, one person cannot be an Agent and a Manager , THAT IS ILLEGAL! It is written in the law that an agent is not suppossed to be a manager as well. And for one person to be an acting coach, headshot photographer, and everything else under the sun is also illegal and unheard of. This person knows only a small amount about acting, and will let his students know that LA is not the place to be, which is false, if you are serious about your career, then LA is the place you want to be, not Ontario. And on top of that this person is claiming to be SAG franchised, when this person is not affiliated with SAG. On his Agent contract he has a SAG logo on it, which is illegal for him to do because he has nothing to do with SAG. There have also been reports of this person verbally abusing former students. He installs fear in his students about the business and LA, so his students will feel like he is the only option. He is not known in LA and has a bad wrap, due to his illegal business. The only reason this person is still able to do what he is doing, is because his business is independent and very small...but this place must be SHUT DOWN!

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

ITM Studio REBUTTAL

AUTHOR: Cocerned parent - ()

This company has been at at the same location for over 10 years. They have had the same phone number for over 10 years. This should show the general public that they are a very established company. They do accept credit cards through the website. Having a credit card machine in a business is not always needed when you offer paying credit card on website. If you go to website you will see that you can pay online. The instructors bio has always been on the homepage of the website. With additional links so that you can research him. The instructor has many years of experience and is very knowledgeable in all areas. We ask that you as the consumer do your own reserch on ITM Studio and the instructor and make your own conclusion. We do apologize for not being perfect in grammar and spelling. We will try to be perfect in all areas and not have any typos. Is typos even a word? Let me ask Google. Yes Google said it is a word YAY !!! Thank God for GOOGLE !!! We will also try to provide a great experience at ITM Studio and try really hard at keeping everyone happy. YA!! GOOD LUCK !!! WITH THAT !!!!!

This is ITM Studio signing off.

Please Forgive This " COMPLAINER " For There Hardden Heart

AUTHOR: In The Moment Acting Studio - (United States of America)

" A message from the Owner of ITM Studio "
ITM Studio offers acting classes for kids, teens, adults. We have been in the same location for over 6 years. We offer a very inexpensive acting program for the kids in which they can sign up through the Ontario Community Center. We have been working with the City of Ontario for  6 years providing the kids acting program. We have had positive newspaper articles written about us and the wonderful service we offer. Some people come to the studio to take classes for fun, to work on shyness, and some are interested in pursuing acting at a professional level. What ever the reason we welcome everyone.

At ITM Studio we offer a very pleasant, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere. We do not tolerate rude or disrespectful behavior of any kind toward staff or fellow students. Once in a while we have to exercise our policies and ask that a certain individual not return because of there behavior. unfortunately this can be the end result.

We have also had appear in court because our policies were challenged by individuals. Of course the truth of right and wrong is decided by a court of law. We are happy to say that the allegations held against us were determined to be false and held no merit in a court of law. We would like to thank the community, and our talented actors for believing in our innocents. 

" THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE !! Amen "


We will continue to provide Inland Empire actors with OPPORTUNITIES, TRAINING, and a place to NETWORK. If you would like to know more about our studio you can call direct at (909) 800-9998 or visit us at www.itmactingstudio.net
( MANY OF OUR ACTORS HAVE BOOKED ROLES FOR MAJOR TELEVISION SHOWS, COMMERCIALS, AND FEATURE FILMS.) The Actors booked through our contacts and opportunities and of course the actors hard work and dedication to the acting craft.

ITM STUDIO IS " A GREAT PLACE "

AUTHOR: Bobby - (United States of America)

Victim of a consumer Rip-off? Want justice?



Ripoff Report is a worldwide consumer reporting Web site and publication, by consumers, for consumers, to file and document complaints about companies or individuals. While we encourage and even require authors to only file truthful reports, Ripoff Report does not guarantee that all reports are authentic or accurate. Be an educated consumer. Read what you can and make your decision based upon an examination of all available information.

THIS REPORT WAS DONE BY A VERY UNHAPPY AND " MISINFORMED " PERSON. AS YOU CAN SEE RIP- OFF REPORT CAN BE USED TO TRY AND HURT BUSINESS OWNERS AND INDIVIDUALS. THIS IS WHY RIP-OFF REPORT HAS THE ABOVE DISCLAIMER ON THERE HOME PAGE. THEY ARE AWARE OF THE ABUSE AND FALSE INFORMATION THAT CORRUPTS AND DISTORTS THE SITE AND IN ORDER TO AVOID ANY POTENTIAL LAWSUITS THE DISCLAIMER ABOVE MUST BE IN PLAIN VIEW ON THERE SITE.

I AM PRESENTLY A STUDENT WITH ITM STUDIO AND CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT THE ABOVE CLAIM WAS DONE BY A FORMER CLASS MATE WHO WAS ASKED NOT TO COME BACK TO THE STUDIO FOR DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR AND VERBALLY ABUSING OTHER FEMALE STUDENTS.

THROUGH ITM STUDIO I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO AUDITION FOR MAJOR ACTING ROLES IN TELEVISION, FILM, COMMERCIALS, AND HAVE LANDED SOME ROLES AS WELL. THEY PUT ON PLAYS AT THE STUDIO, FILM SOME OF THERE OWN PROJECTS, BRING DOWN GUEST FROM THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. ALL THESE EXTRA SERVICES ARE PART OF THE CLASS AND ARE FREE. SOME PEOPLE COME TO THE STUDIO FOR FUN AND TO BE A PART OF A ACTING GROUP. OTHERS ARE THERE TO PURSUE ACTING PROFESSIONALLY. THEY DO OFFER OTHER SERVICES AT THE STUDIO LIKE HEADSHOTS, AND FILMING REELS IF A STUDENT REQUEST THE SERVICE. 

THEY HAVE HAD MANY PRESS WRITE UPS IN THE NEWSPAPERS, AND HAVE A BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CITY OF ONTARIO COMMUNITY CENTER. THEY PROVIDE AFFORDABLE ACTING CLASS PROGRAMS FOR THE KIDS. YOU CAN GO TO THE CITY COMMUNITY CENTER AND SIGN YOUR KIDS UP. 

THE INSTRUCTOR THERE REALLY ENJOYS TEACHING AND HELPING OTHERS. HE IS FIRST AND FOREMOST AND ACTING COACH BUT HAS BEEN BLESSED WITH BEING IN A POSITION TO HELP OTHERS PURSUE ACTING AT A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL. LIKE RIP-OFF REPORT STATES " DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND COME TO YOUR OWN CONCLUSION. I ASK THAT YOU VISIT THERE WEBSITE AT http://itmactingstudio.net/   that is www.itmactingstudio.net 

"come to your own conclusion"

THANK YOU & GOD BLESS
