Teens Film + TV Acting Classes | Age 12-17

The Biz Difference: Biz Studio students have about twice the one-on-one time with faculty as students at other schools (max of 6 students per class). We have a legacy of training young actors who go on to work in the industry, *outstanding* instructors, and a beautiful downtown campus inside a working film & tv casting studio… Read More
 

 
Class Structure: Students are assigned a new on-camera scene each class, and expected to prepare like they would for a professional audition. Video from each class is posted online.
 
Teachers: Michael Bean, Laura Bertram, Stephanie Halber, Leanne Lapp and Alison Araya are all working actors, so they understand what it takes to audition and book work.
 
Prerequisites: No experience is necessary to take the Confidence on Camera classes or Intensives. Students in the Intermediate/Advanced classes are expected to have a strong foundation in camera and acting technique (i.e. the ability to do confident, realistic, emotionally available on-camera work with a multi-page scene with less than a week’s prep time).

Spring Break Intensives Mar'19

Spring Break Intensives are a chance for students to see the kind of progress they can make when they are able to devote 100% to acting. Students can expect to have fun, learn about themselves, open up, build confidence, make new friends, and prepare for professional work in a supportive learning environment. Whenever possible each week features a workshop with a local casting director (TBA; because of their busy schedules we confirm week-of). Past intensives have featured Edward Rae, Tiffany Mak, Judy Lee, Kris Woznesensky, Kara Eide, Michelle Allen, Candice Elzinga and Jackie Lind.

TESTIMONIALS

 

Stuart Aikins
Stuart Aikins Casting Director: 'Twilight', 'Mr. Young', 'Level Up'
Biz Studio is like an acting boot camp for kids. They are energized with acting work, professionals from the business and the results are staggering. I often come away from working with a class having seen new and wonderful talent I bring into my audition room immediately. Michael Bean is brilliant.

Kids who study with Biz Studio all seem to book more work, and isn’t that the goal!”
January Wolodarsky
January Wolodarsky Mom to Tuedon, Age 15
Tuedon is loving the class and has oodles of new tips to tell me about everyday. It seems that you are having a lot of fun too. That’s great! it wears off on the kids. Her agent Dyan has been watching the videos and is impressed with Tuedon’s improvement. Thank you, you’re doing a fabulous job.”
