A Chat with South Bay Acting Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Each class is 2 hours long and limited to 8 students. This allows the maximum amount of personal attention to each student in a group class setting. Acting class is almost like therapy and requires an environment that fosters mutual trust.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students are provided with scenes from projects that are currently casting. No Shakespeare or musicals here. Everything we work on is from a television show or feature film. Therefore, all material we work on is relevant to the current marketplace.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Chris started off as a manager and producer, grooming developmental talent. After writing and directing a feature film for Lionsgate, he decided to focus his efforts on coaching actors, specifically kids ages 6-18.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with kids. They have no bad habits and I feel they have a lot to gain from my classes. Not only is this great for the working actor, but many of my students are in my class for other reasons such as improving self confidence, public speaking, social skills amongst others.
