On-Camera Class Starts April 3rd!

In case you haven’t heard, my on-camera acting class at Studio 105 begins this April on Wednesday the 3rd.

I’m very excited about this class. For a long time now (about a decade) I’ve been working with actors young and old to build up their skills and help get them started. Steven’s studio gives me the opportunity to explore that with a whole new group of people. We’ve done some really good work in the studio already and students are already booking work – that’s always my favorite part.

For April we’ll be focusing on improvisation and getting comfortable on the camera. This is a great way to start whether you’re fresh off the bus or a seasoned pro. You’ll get to know your group, make some new friends and on day one do some on-camera work. The nice thing about this month of study is that it isn’t just for actors. The skills we’ll be building are good for students, real estate professionals, sales people and just about anyone who has to deal with the public.

Also, the blog deal is still in effect until the first class! Say “super blog” when you sign up to get your first month for only $175 (normally $250)!

There are still some slots available so check out Studio 105 and secure your spot today!

See you next time.

Studio 105 Commercial!

Steven from Studio 105 and I put together a quick commercial about the studio, and here it is:

We have on-camera acting classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 7-9pm in the Studio 105 space in downtown Long Beach. Steven teaches Tuesdays and Thursdays and I teach Wednesdays.

In fact, because my class is just starting, we’ve got a deal going on!

Normally you’re first month of class is $250 – but if you sing up for my class and give the code “Super Blog” you’ll get 30% off! So your first month is only $175, and then each month there after is only $150!

Amazing, right?

Remember this offer is only valid for your initial sign-up for my new Wednesday night class and expires May 1, 2013. You must use the code  “super blog” when signing up.

You can go to the Studio 105 website or call this number: 323-898-3567 to sign up. Space is limited to get your spot soon.

Curtis Andersen at Studio 105 in Long Beach

I have been teaching people acting techniques and how to perform for about a decade. For the last six years I’ve been teaching at Kids Acting School in Lake Forest and, while I’ll still be there on the weekends for the foreseeable future, I’ll actually be teaching on camera classes at Studio 105 in Long Beach!

Studio 105 was opened last year by my friend Steven Nelson. He’s a working actor that you’ve probably seen in a few things and I know you’ve seen the commercials he’s been in. He’s also a talented screen writer and excellent instructor. Follow the upper link to see his school bio and check out his career HERE.

My classes start THIS APRIL! Wednesday April 3rd to be exact. Would you like to sign up? Well here’s how you do that!
