Acting Class

The day will be lead by Mark Oliver, an International working actor with over 100 on screen credits. Mark has appeared in major television productions such as “The Resident” and “Necessary Roughness”, as well as alongside Matthew McConaughey in the hit film, “We Are Marshall”.


Every attendee will receive a professional Hair and Makeup session, followed by headshots taken by our veteran photographers. Your printed headshot and electronic files will be ready for you at the end of the day for immediate integration into your portfolio.

Clip For Your Reel

After the catered lunch, we will begin shooting your personal commercial demo available to use in your reel, or to begin building one. This high concept spot will be professionally filmed in studio with Mark Oliver directing.

Executive Producer, TDN

I’ve seen too many creative workshops that over promised and under delivered. I decided to partner with respected and committed professionals to deliver the right information and instruction and create portfolio pieces that actors can show potential agencies to land work.

Mike Noa

Executive Producer TDN

I needed this class. I thought I knew a lot but I learned there is still a lot I need to know to be considered as a serious, professional actor. I will absolutely attend again.

Filming in front of a green screen was fun. I appreciated Mark’s direction and could understand why he was coaching and directing us the way he was. If nothing else, I feel more confident and prepared for my next audition.
