As Actors, we carry so much doubt about ourselves and our work, the lives we chose (or that chose us!).
At Q Acting Studios, our main goal is to demystify the creative process for our students. It is your creative home, a place where you can learn and grow your art through being a student of the art itself. There is no room for doubt in an environment of growth.
We teach a repeatable process that will continue to feed your work. A process that works with you and for you. A process that evolves with you as an artist and the entertainment industry as it is in a constant state of change.
Wether you are a beginning actor or a veteran, there is a home for you in our community at Q!
Acting is one of the few careers where you really learn by doing. Experience is essential in our industry and we are here to offer multiple ways to get what you want and most importantly, what you NEED for your career goals: EXPERIENCE!
Self-Taping is quickly becoming not only the main, but the only way that casting directors will call in their first round of auditions. Even Producer sessions have moved into the virtual realm!
So how do you nail that audition without any direction? It feels really taxing, like you're expected to be the Director and Cinematographer, like you're sending work into the ether, talking to no one...
That's where Q Studios comes in!
We have a high rate of successful bookings from our Self-Tape direction. We know the technical expectations so you don't have to worry about it, all you have to do is be you!
Have your Self-Tape tech down but need a little direction? Or maybe just want a personalized acting class where you can laser-focus your acting goals with seasoned coaching? We offer a free consultation and work with your budget for audition or on-going coaching! Shoot us an email for more information or click the button below if you're ready to book your first session!
This one hour intensive 1-on -1 Career Coaching covers everything from discovering and honing your brand, material consultation (reels, headshots, resumes, assets, etc.), self-taping, self-promoting, putting your networking to work for you, callbacks and what happens in the room, producer sessions and so much more! We will record virtual sessions for you to refer back to when you need it-we know it's a lot of information!
The state of the Voiceover industry has changed drastically over the past few years. Prior to the pandemic, we were already seeing more home studio capabilities and a stronger demand for working from home.
Now more than ever, it is extremely rare to go in for a session, and auditions are pretty much done entirely from your in-home setup.
Is yours up to par? Or maybe thinking of joining the great resignation and doing what you LOVE with YOUR Voice? At Q Studios we'll guide you through starting your own business as a true contender in the voice world. With the right tools and the right set up, you'll be well on your way to jumpstarting your voiceover career!
Book your One-on-One consult below!
We'll discuss building your professional at-home studio, updating or putting your reel together, animation, video games, commercials, ADR, creating characters, and so much more! Wether you're just starting out or looking to step up your competitive edge, we're here to help!
WORKSHOPS COMING SOON!!
This class is an all-encompassing, muscle-building approach to acting. While we don't ascribe to any particular school-of-thought or technique, (and we've studied them all!) we will focus on what works best for YOU. After all, there is only one YOU in this world! No one, not even your teachers think like you, so we work with wherever YOU are! Wether you've completed Conservatory Training, taken a few Improv classes, or are just starting out, we will meet you there and work together to let the real you shine through your work--THAT is what casting directors want to see!
Our sessions will focus on audition techniques, the new and ever-evolving world of self-taping (and learning to love it because it's not going anywhere soon!), breaking down an audition, scene study, making strong choices and so much more! All of your work will be taped for you, so that you can go back and reference as you move forward and grow in your career.
This class takes you above and beyond the script breakdown. We believe that you cannot possibly create a full character from beginning to end and all of the character arcs in between without understanding your role in the whole story. This goes for movies, television, stage, commercials, really everything! This class will give you the tools to focus on the context and clues from the writing so that you can extrapolate all those character pieces you need to create a whole, realized, grounded character. Wether you are a one day Co-Star, Series Regular, or looking to nail that Commercial Audition, this class is offers a unique tool in creating whole, confident characters.
This class is not only geared toward technique AFTER you book, but also zeros-in on delivering a unique take on a role in an audition that will book the job!
Q-Kids / Q-Tweens/Q-Teens
Is your child clamoring for an opportunity to explore the performing arts on screen? This is the place to come learn and play!
We have a curriculum specifically tailored to young actors of all ages. Kids and Teens will face different challenges in this industry, and we believe that teaching them to love what they do while still understanding that this is a profession is vital to their success and continued love of the arts. With our extensive background and success in Children's training for the stage and screen, we understand both facets of the unique world this presents for minors: the fun and the business.
This class will prepare our Q-kids and Q-Teens for the expectations and demands of the Entertainment Industry while keeping it light and fun, maintaining that passion as they grow into whoever they decide to become!
Teens (Ages 13+): Saturdays 3p-5p
Tweens (Ages 9-12): Saturdays 12:45p-2:45p
Kids (Ages 4-8): Saturdays 10:30a-12:30p
So you're taking the classes, you're doing the work, and you've booked the job--now what?
It's called "Show Business" for a reason: it is a business, first and foremost. Unfortunately we are mostly left to figure that part out after the Conservatory and Improv troupes have come and gone.
Technique and training will only go so far if you don't know how to parlay that into a lifelong career-which is what we all aspire to achieve! This class covers everything from discovering and honing your brand, material consultation, self-taping, self-promoting, putting your networking to work for you, callbacks and what happens in the room, producer sessions and so much more!
This is definitely a class we wish we had in our training , and a class we've never seen at any other studio!
WORKSHOPS COMING SOON!!
Our Casting and Voiceover workshops will be helmed by some very special guests that are masters of their crafts and in high-demand. We'll post updates when these workshops become available on our socials and will add bookings directly through this website--stay tuned!
