The camera may add ten pounds, but an adoring fan on your back adds more than a hundred. Keep the fourth wall firmly reinforced with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one introductory acting class at The Acting School for Film and Television (a $150 value).

Calling upon decades of big and small screen success, school head Mark Stolzenberg infuses his students with the specialized savvy to act before the camera. In his two-hour lesson, Stolzenberg tackles all of the basics of on-screen performance, preparing students for the shock of seeing every pore and twitch magnified on a 50 foot projection. Stage-eschewing thespians will also be schooled in the vital steps of properly hitting marks, displaying the proper profile, and executing precise volume and movement. Students of all levels can unleash their inner Uta Hagens in emotional exercises designed to coat the lens in raw authenticity. Graduates of the introductory acting class leave prepared to strut their stuff in on-camera screen tests. After Stolzenberg’s invaluable tutelage, actors will feel as bulletproof as the lens that shoots a Western shootout, with the newfound confidence to tackle auditions, callbacks, and paparazzi.

New York Acting School for Film and Television

Drawing on big- and small-screen success, such as appearances in Tom Selleck's Her Alibi and on Late Show with David Letterman, as well as more than 25 national commercials, acting guru Mark Stolzenberg transforms amateurs into screen-savvy performers at the New York Acting School for Film and Television. Thespians hone their acting chops through monologues, improvisations, and cold readings in Mark's classes, preparing for time spent on television or the big screen. Essentials classes introduce neophyte film actors to the intricacies of playing to the camera, whereas advanced pupils refine their techniques by co-starring in a two-person short film directed by Stolzenberg, learning to handle more difficult scene work and larger crowds of crazed fans. For more targeted practice, Mark hosts one-on-one, on-camera coaching sessions to prep audition material or monologues for upcoming performances.
