For intermediate to experienced actors
The Australian’s are kicking ass in LA, why not come and check out how they do it?
Los Angeles is the mecca for actors, and as such there are as many acting schools as probably McDonalds!
SAC has a very small (only 7/8) actor class running Wednesdays with SAC founder Chum Ehelepola. Chum is working in LA and has opened a small group workshop. The classes follow the SAC philosophy of truth and failure. As the class is so small, a lot of work is spent directly with the actor. Looking at the various blocks, area’s of growth, area’s of weakness, styles of each actor. The class is NOT a curriculum class, it is a fluid, work out specifically focused on the actor and their needs. It is very different to the normal LA class model. It is more about experimentation, discoveries and pushing the limits.
The class celebrates the art of failure. If you do not push yourself to failure, how will you know where your limit is? Failure is such a taboo word, that schools and the like make sure their actors do not encounter, but that is setting them up for failure in their career! We encourage failure in the room, for success in your career. The assumption is that every actor knows how to act but is looking for something new or a chance to push themselves into new territory.
With the luxury of a small class we can maintain a safe environment. An environment free of competition, free of perfection, free of “getting it right” and ultimately free of that horrible mind chatter that keeps actors in their head. SAC works on getting you listening to your intuition and acting from your instincts. And just to HAVE FUN AND PLAY!!! Acting is meant to be enjoyable, not hard work!
SAC LA actors have gone on to shows such as SUPERNATURAL, X-FILES, MULAN, and many more.
