Free Acting Class
We offer a free 90-minute workshop on varying Mondays every month from 1:30pm-3:00pm. This workshop is designed for new students to get a feel for who Annie is, how she teaches and what her classes consist of. The workshop is not mandatory to enter the studio, but if you have questions or are not sure, this is a great way to get to know Annie.
 

Taped Auditions

Need to Tape Your Audition?
Submit the Best Possible Taped Audition

Taped Auditions are only available in conjunction with a private coaching session.

  1. Most of the time the coach and actor can tell when a taped scene will not work or be used therefore eliminating the need to watch all the takes. This allows more time to work on the craft. However, if you would like to watch every take, you must schedule enough time to do so.
  2. Editing of your video is done on behalf of the studio by Jo-Ann Pantoja.
  3. Payment is by cash or check made out to “Jo-Ann Pantoja”.
  4. There is a $30 fee for 15-30 minutes of editing and uploading. Editing is done on Final Cut Pro.
  5. If needed, minor color and audio adjustments are included in the edit.
  6. There is an additional fee (per format) if your video needs to be reformatted for submission to various websites.
  7. An Editing Form will be sent to you by the coach that booked your appointment with. We also ask that you leave a copy of your sides for the editor.
