About Ace Studios
We have one simple goal: to provide an Actors Creative Environment (ACE). In this environment, actors will learn from industry professionals and gain the necessary tools to enrich their acting career. Ace Studios features numerous casting director workshops, specialized classes and intensives, and free events. There are many great workshop studios in town, but we have taken steps to make your experience a bit different. We encourage your feedback to our approach.
1. The performance list is determined when you register for the workshop. Plain and simple- if you register EARLY, you will be able to select an earlier performance slot time (if you so desire). Our goal is to have the best learning experience and for your time to be spent most efficiently. Bear in mind that workshop formats will vary - many classes will use full group, small group, paired reads, etc. ALWAYS read a class description before registering!
2. Each industry professional will determine their style of teaching and how they run their class. We want to make each actors experience personal and private or semi-private. In order to achieve this, our workshops will feature a brief intro section, and then jump right into the work. Once in the room, feel free to ask a question or two...it’s your time!!
Our Workshop Formats
We feature three distinct, unique workshop formats. Please note: You will be able to select your performance slot on line!
A- One on One performance with the industry professional; you chose and prepare a scene that highlights your abilities, then perform with a reader for the industry professional. You sign up for the performance slot you desire. Some guests will use a hybrid of this and the class room setting: 3-5 actors will go into the room at once. They will perform one at a time and receive feedback; once each actor in the group has worked, they will exit and the next group will enter the room.
B- Class room settings; please read the description of the class to see if the instructor will assign scenes in advance or provide them in class for cold reading.
C- Multi week classes, these special events will take place once or twice a month, see the class description for the individual formats.
*Evaluation and feedback forms will be at the discretion of each industry professional.
Please click on our “Policies and FAQs" page for further info on all of our formats.
Also, please remember that workshops are designed as a learning experience, and Ace Studios wants to make yours a truly pleasant one!
Casting director workshops are not auditions or a guarantee of employment. They are however the most powerful tool for helping you learn about this wonderful industry. What we want is simple: dedicated artists that have the desire to succeed and grow! Hope to see you soon!
