Question by Country Girl: What is the best actor / film school in La ? not colleges plz?
I’m attending to move to LOS ANGELES to study acting (for tv not for theatre) and in my researches I found some very reputable and impressive schools….I do understand that the acting technique demand time to learn, but I already study it for quite a good time and I do prefer short time workshops and trainning, such as few months program (coz they’re usually 3 levels) and not 2 years or long…
the schools I’ m considering are:
Does anyone know about any of those schools?
The Acting Corps
Acting Without Agony Academy
TVI Actors Studio
Thanks for your time and help!
Answer by TruthTeller59
Lee Strasberg and TVI Studios are lousy schools.
Here are some of the best schools in LA:
Cold Reading/Auditioning (Ranked from Top to Bottom)
-Hey, I Saw Your Commercial!
-Stuart K. Robinson
Improv (All four are great)
-Upright Citizens Brigade
Scene Study/Acting (It varies. Some schools are not for everyone. Chubbuck, Eric Morris, and Howard Fine are not for people who aren’t fans of Strasberg or Uta Hagen (ie. affective memory and substitution.) Playhouse West, Joanne Baron/DW Brown, and Acting Corps are more Meisner oriented. Try to audit these places and make sure if they’re for you or not.
-Beverly Hills Playhouse
-Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown
