The Actors Alliance Hollywood

The Actors Alliance Hollywood Acting & Comedy Classes, Mentorship and Professional Training.

The Actors Alliance Hollywood teaches you the skills and gives you the confidence you need to become a sincere actor and land paying jobs. The Alliance was founded in 2010 by Taylor Brooks, an actor and director who wanted to create more professional, effective and valuable resources for actors. Our live and virtual events teach acting method, memorization, emotional work, audition prep and professionalism. We are passionate about helping actors navigate the industry to avoid common mistakes and money-traps so that they can quickly move into a long and successful career. We focus on three areas: Skill: Can you memorize lines? Are you believable? Can you express true emotion? Can you express joy, fear, sadness and sensuality on the spot and with ease? Can you impress a casting director and stand out from the sometimes thousands of other submissions? Professionalism: Are your headshots professional? Are they sending the right image and message to casting directors? Do you have enough headshot looks so that you can submit the right look for each role type? Do you have a demo reel? Have you ever been taught how to prepare and perform an audition correctly? Career Advancement: If you feel stuck, or like you need more personalized support with getting your career going, you may want private mentorship. Our director, Taylor Brooks, will guide you through submitting for auditions, audition prep, role prep and memorization. We can also produce celebrity-quality headshots and demo reels. The best place to start with us is by trying a class. Our class schedule can be found on this page: http://actorsalliancehollywood.weebly.com/class-schedule.html

Mission: The Actors Alliance Hollywood teaches you how to be an incredible actor and gives you the skills and confidence to land paying jobs. We were founded in 2010 by Taylor Brooks, an actor and director who wanted to create more professional, effective and valuable resources for actors. Our live and virtual events teach acting method, emotional work, career skills and professionalism. We are also passionate about guiding actors through the beginning of their careers to avoid common mistakes and money-traps. Join us for an event soon!

Five things that if casting directors detect, you will not get the job. ( They are already expecting the majority of you will do these things anyway.)
1. Star before your star syndrome.
2. Crazy Actor person.
3. Just no damn good and never will be. Even with simple redirect.
4. Someone or something in their way ...drugs, upsupportive family member(s) or lover etc. ( Don't smell like weed)
5. Dumb or unprepared . Line changers. Know every line.

3 Reasons Auditioning Is an Art in Itself

"Auditioning is often seen as the poor uncreative cousin to acting; a necessary evil, the thing you have to learn so that you can get the job and really act.

This losing attitude is just plain wrong.

Auditioning is a dynamic creative process that can shine a light on your soul and test your skills and bravery like few other artistic disciplines can. It is an art form unto itself." http://www.backstage.com/advice-for-actors/backstage-experts/3-reasons-auditioning-art-itself/

Auditioning is not a step towards acting, but rather an art in itself.

Emotional Workout Class this Saturday 12pm @ ACME Studios in NOHO!

ABOUT THE CLASS

If you want to practice your emotional expression, learn to cry on cue, and become a more believable actor, this is the class for you.

You'll spend your time during this group session going through emotional replacement exercises that award-winning actors are using today.

During the class, you'll practice techniques that expand your emotional range to get you crying, laughing, roaring, screaming and more. It sounds intense, but you'll leave as a more relaxed, confident and believable actor.

FREEBIE POLICY

The first class with Actors Alliance Hollywood is always on us, but a $10 donation is appreciated to chip in for the theater rental.

One day each month Taylor Brooks Studios in North Hollywood opens its doors at a discount to Actors Alliance Hollywood.

Taylor takes the time to look at your current headshots, evaluate your "look" and analyze how a director would cast you. He considers all the roles you would be good for and creates your headshot looks based on the analysis. He'll combine your wardrobe with his to make you into 2-6 different character types for your headshots. This is so valuable because it enables you to submit for many different roles.

Taylor Brooks is a highly praised, professional fashion and glamour photographer. View his online portfolio here: www.taylorbrooksstudios.com
