LA's Foremost On Camera Acting Studio

Need or want professional demo reel footage?​​

​​Our 4 week On Camera, On Set workshop is with award winning filmmaker and director David Rountree.  David is set to direct the $6.1 million dollar thriller Descention in the summer of 2018 and uses his acting workshop in the meantime to work with actors. Some of the studio sessions are used to actually showcase parts of the actual scripts from upcoming feature films. The classes are kept to a small number to ensure everyone has extensive on camera acting time. This is an on camera, on set experience and is exciting, fun and incredibly beneficial. Every class is filmed and you are acting in fully filmed and professionally directed scenes with multiple moving cameras. All in a very positive and helpful manner. 


LA Acting Studios is run by award-winning director David Rountree. David was recently listed in the Hollywood Reporter and IMDb as one of the Top 10 Hollywood directors under 40 and is known to cast members from his classes into his films and commercials. Learn how to, not only get the job with insider tips, but how to develop memorable characters with multi layered performances that captivate audiences. The workshop is on-camera and actors can download their footage after each class.

Week 1:   Is treated exactly like an audition. You show up and  sign in and he calls you in one by one with a reader and you audition for the part. You are emailed sides for the audition a day in advance and can pick from different genres. Producers and writers of the films set to be filmed actually review your audition film footage. The rest of the session are mostly fun and exciting improv acting exercises with David.  

Week 2: You are given a scene a few days ahead of time with the character you auditioned for and will be performing scenes in the 2nd session on camera directed by David. You will be given adjustments and perform a 2nd take. Special industry guests will be on hand as well to watch all actors perform. Past guests have included casting directors, agents, writers, producers, well known actors and other industry guests. You are able to bring a Headshot and resume and exchange information.

Week 3: You will perform the same scene and or additional scenes in the same film and same character using the choices you have made and worked on from the week before. Everything is filmed and available after class. David will be working with you one on one and helping you to make the strongest possible choices. He will focus on technical aspects as well as acting in front of the camera. He will also emphasize physical movements that fill up the screen. 

Week 4: You will perform your scene exactly as if you arrived on a feature film set. It will be professionally directed and filmed. You will perform with a master shot, close ups and insert shots professionaly directed by David with lights, a sound person and small crew. This is the most real On Set acting experience you will have in an LA Acting class! 

Week 3 and 4 are run with multiple moving cameras fed into two large overhead television screens. Actors can watch the other actors perform from both angles on screen while they are performing live. This gives incredible insight. The scenes are professionally lit and directed by David. You will have opportunities for multiple takes during the full scenes as well. 

You will learn more technical aspects of acting and how to create and make the strongest possible choices in front of the camera. This is truly a very special  workshop that will help you grow tremendously as an actor. LA Acting Studios believes in providing incredible value at affordable prices for working actors. 

The goal of the workshop is to experience a film from audition, rehearsing, all the way to fully filmed scenes as if on set. You will be working with a professional director and meet and network with industry professionals along the way. (Casting directors, agents, self marketing experts for actors, etc.). RSVP NOW!

David cares about helping actors with their careers. Rountree’s MO is to cast actors from his workshops for his commercials and many of his films! He submits footage filmed in class to other producers and casting agents who are actively casting films. Some of the submitted footage of our actors has led to auditions, call backs and principal roles for many of the actors in other projects! In addition LA Acting Studios recently produced a film  and 70 actors were cast in the film from LA Acting Studios. The film was a massive success!  It premiered at LA Live Regal Cinemas and has now been accepted to the Cannes Film Festival in France later this year! The film will go on to be screened in other film festivals around the world. Every actor in the film received an IMDb credit and our actors were amazing! All thanks to director David Rountree’s positive instruction in his workshops.  David cares about the success of actors and he is working hard to help his actors achieve real opportunities in the industry.
