The YOU Project
...Take just 6 months to change your career...
The Original Project started out as an experiment to see if we could take a group of actors and really make a huge difference in their careers in 6 months.
They became a group of actors, writers, producers and directors determined to make their voices heard.
They developed their own projects.
They got Agents and Managers.
The got work: Feature Films, Plays, TV Series, Web series, Commercials.
They grew as actors, as business people and as humans.
As we grew, so did the types of classes we teach, but The YOU Project is our

WARNING: This program is not for the faint-of-heart! This is the class that must be taken to get in the Filmmakers group.
The YOU Project is a six-month program to put your acting journey on a new path and take your career to the next level. But, just like anything worthwhile, it takes work! Students are asked to commit to six months to fully complete all the steps in the program.
The first 3 months are dedicated to acting techniques and audition skills as well as business development. Second 3 months creates The YOU Project performance, which is an award-winning theater piece that we have come to call simply: The You Project. It is part of the annual Hollywood Fringe Festival.
"Originally, I thought six months, I can't possibly do six months and now I think,
how did I learn and do all that in just 6 months?
Years later, I am still here, still learning and still creating"
We understand it seems like a long commitment,
but there is a lot do to change or create a career.
Isn’t six months worth it to get the career you want?
Aren't you worth it?
We think so.
And so have our students.
If you’re serious about your career, a six-month investment should be do-able. As a serious actor, you should always be in on-going training anyway. And if you’re not, perhaps you should ask yourself how badly you really want a career as an actor.
