GET IN THE KNOW WITH JUST BE ACTING STUDIO

We answer the questions actors may not even know to ask, teachers may not know to tell,
and things we wish we'd known sooner:

"How do I act on a wide shot ​versus a close up? What are the do’s and don’t of a closeup? How do I get auditions? What's the difference between an agent and manager? What is a screen test?What is a screen test like? How do I stand out in an audition? How do I go from getting auditions to getting callbacks and booking? Am I good at taking redirections from casting directors, directors, etc.? How do I get rid of nerves? I don’t cry in my daily life, so I have trouble when it’s called for in a scene—what do I do? What is set like?  What makes a good headshot? What are tricks to a GREAT close up? What makes a self tape great? What happens with self tapes once I send them? WHAT?! You’re telling me casting directors usually makeup their minds about your self tape audition that fast?! Wait. You can do that in an audition? Wait. You shouldn’t do that in an audition? Oops! "

 

... Just to name a few.

Every one of our instructors are current and working actors. We know first-hand what it's like to audition and work on set in today's world. This business is ever changing, and it's important to have acting mentors who are up-to-date on the industry. At Just Be Acting Studio, we can teach you what casting directors respond to, give you the tools you need to stand out amongst the crowd, and empower you to be the best actor you can be.

Students see growth in their acting very quickly, as we cater our approach to individual students. Everybody is unique, and getting to the root of honest emotions is not a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. Our instructors have an abundance of tools to help you thrive in your career, and give you the individual attention you need.

We share our knowledge and experiences with you so YOU can book TV and movie roles, too! When you land auditions or step on set, you will be far more prepared than the average actor. Let's get everyone wanting saying "I want to hire them again!"
