If you’d like to get started with The Screen Acting Studio, your first step is signing up for the Orientation Intensive.

How it Works

All new students must take this one-time class. It will be taught once a month with Aaron Speiser and Kay Aston and will be four hours long with a 20-minute break. If you cannot attend the Orientation date, a private session can be arranged if necessary.

In this special, limited capacity class (14 students), we introduce you to the way we work, teach the philosophy of Screen Acting, assess your skills with in-class exercises, and place you in the appropriate class for you. 

If you have a reel, resume, and headshot, we will also review all of your materials. At the end of class, you will have one-on-one time to speak with us privately. At that time we will lay out a program for you, based on your goals and our assessment.

You will also gain access to our large script library, audition sides library, and be able to sign up for our upcoming special classes, such as “Script Breakdown for Actors,” “Audition Technique,” “Improv for Screen Acting,” and “The Business of Acting.”

Once you have taken the Orientation Intensive, you may be placed in one of our on-going classes, which include Technique, Scene Study with Kay Aston, and Aaron Speiser’s Masterclasses.

We are an invite/referral only program. We limit our class sizes to 16 students per class. Because we have limited time and space, we only want to work with clients who are serious about being professional screen actors. We have worked very hard for decades to establish this reputation and foundation. We are one of the best in the business at what we do. We love to teach and this is why we are here.

    Strength: Very Weak
