From Our Editors
From acting alongside Al Pacino to working with the casting directors of Boardwalk Empire and Argo, Joshua Nelson knows firsthand the hurdles actors must face, both in front of and behind the camera. As the head instructor at LaGuardia Acting Studio, he draws on his 20-plus years of experience to train actors of all ages and skill levels. Instead of emphasizing specific methods, Joshua weaves elements of Stanislavski, Strasberg, and other techniques into lessons tailored to each individual student. With these foundations of craft intact, pupils strengthen their chops for film, television, and commercials through scene studies and character development exercises. Joshua also emphasizes the business side of the industry by training his students in audition etiquette and resume writing.
