WELL ROUNDED CUSTOMIZED ACTING PROGRAMS
Study film acting & work in Hollywood’s film industry

The Michelle Danner Acting Studio’s philosophy is that artists can draw upon all different acting techniques and form an individual toolbox, their own Golden Box. We will help you to develop your own “Golden Box” of techniques and tools that you can use when approaching a role or a scene, whether it be for film, television, or theater. The Acting School’s acting techniques are based on Meisner, Strasberg, Adler, Hagen, Chekhov & the Stanislavsky Technique.
Students may select from our course offerings and customize their own programs for a well-rounded training.
The following are examples of classes that can be selected:
Danner Acting Studio
The Actor’s “Golden Box”: Two-Day Acting Technique seminar with Michelle Danner
You will accumulate a comprehensive set of “acting tools” to use when approaching a role or a scene, whether it be for film, television, or theater. Discover the answers to the following questions: Why are some choices more powerful than others? How does one deliver a raw unforgettable performance? What specific tools can be applied to film, television, and stage work? How does one develop a personal story from scratch?
Michelle Danner’s experience in the industry as an actor and coach of Oscar nominated actors gives her a unique insight into the world of acting!

Breaking into Hollywood: The business of acting
The must know business aspects of launching your acting career and marketing yourself.
A scene study class is offered to beginners, intermediates & advanced students.
Actors are taught the foundations of technique through opening emotional exercises which are used to warm up the actor’s instrument and teach the tools that will be applied to their scene work. Students explore how to apply their back story to the characters they are creating by working on contemporary and classical scenes and monologues. Emphasis is placed on learning how to make the best physical, emotional, and vocal choices.
Get out of your own head through fun improvisational games and exercises. Discover characters you never knew you could play by being thrown into situations where you don’t have time to think. Become more confident in you as a performer by taking chances in a non-judgmental environment.
Voice and Speech Intensive
Have you experienced one or more of the following? People can’t hear you on stage- your voice has no power. You get emotional and your voice closes or pitches up. You have trouble connecting emotionally to material. Your stomach tightens right before you perform and you can’t breathe. Your voice is breathy-throaty-weak or high pitched. An intensive course for foreign-accented actors who need or want to sound American.
Film Script Analysis:
Analyze film scripts and work on scenes from different genres of screenplays, television, and plays. Students will learn and work through a thorough comprehension of breaking down story, characters, conflicts, and language from dramatic and comedic scripts. There will be in depth discussion of all the tools an actor applies to create their performance. The class will help to acquire the discipline to make powerful choices whether you are auditioning for a project or have booked the part.

Need a Demo Reel or want to add to your existing Demo Reel?
Demo Reel Intensive
What is your demo reel doing for you?
Do you have a Demo Reel that represents you at your best? Let’s be honest, as actor’s we work in an industry where the people that need to know who we are, are often too busy for us to make a personal introduction. First impressions are everything, and it is important to have a Demo Reel that a CD, Agent or Manager can look at in 90 seconds and say, “I need to meet this actor!”
Your demo reel should showcase your work and presence on camera, but it is equally important that your Demo Reel looks professional and that it represents your best work to date. This part of putting together your Reel can be challenging if you do not have a lot of credits on your resume.
We want to help you produce the most professional Demo Reel possible, whether you are a beginner or seasoned professional!
Our 3-week intensive will give you 2 fully produced, “episodic quality” 30 second scenes to add to your Demo Reel. Over these 3-weeks we will help you choose and prepare the right material that will showcase your acting strengths and uniqueness. If you can’t find the right material, we will custom write a scene specifically for you! Once your material is chosen, you will spend the second class on-camera, preparing and refining your scenes. Your final class will be spent on location shooting your scenes in high-quality digital HD!
DEMO REEL SERVICE INCLUDES:
READER – We provide a reader for your scene HAIR & MAKE-UP – Our hair and make-up artist will make sure you look great before you shoot. POST PRODUCE– We will color correct & post produce your scene giving it that finished look. UPLOAD – We will send or upload your demo to wherever you need it EDITING – Our editor can add your new footage to your existing reel for an additional charge.
