"David is a wonderfully innovative director with a great sense of humor and I look forward to working with him again. And he will keep a film on schedule.”
Bruce Davis
​(X-Men) - Golden Globe Winner, Oscar Nominated
"David Rountree is an attentive and energetic film maker who recognized our choices as actors and helped us to make the most out of them. Whether we were on a fully scripted scene or improving one that he wanted to get, we had the freedom and environment to create and that's what it's all about."
Larry Thomas
​(Seinfeld, 108 Stitches) - Emmy Nominated
"I have had the joy of knowing David Rountree for over a decade. I got the pleasure of working with him as the female lead in one of his movies. David Rountree is one of the most talented, fun, & thoughtful directors I have ever had the privilege of working with. Being a talented actor himself, he knows how to draw out the best performances from people. His energy and charisma on set, keeps it a fun, alive, and inspiring place to work. He is a gift to any set he is on."
Erin Cahill
​(Red Widow, How I Met Your Mother, Power Rangers)
"David as a friend, writer and director has one of the hardest working minds and bodies that I know…those qualities teaching an acting class make one kick ass combination! That coupled with working on scenes from upcoming projects really is a no-brainer. Now go get it!"
Kiko Ellsworth
(Bad Boys 2, Heroes, Dexter) - Emmy Award Winning Artist, Author & Creator

“David has a tremendous vision and capacity for helping the actor get the most out of each moment. He really helps define each and every role, no matter what size and sincerely cares about his actors.”
Rosie Garcia
​(Jane the Virgin, CUT!)
“David Rountree is a very talented actor and even more accomplished as a director. David has an incredible work ethic and knows how to bridge the gap between the artist and director to get the best performance out of the talent. Actors will benefit immensely from David's tutelage. And he's a GREAT guy. Actors should do themselves a favor and take his class."
Anthony Montgomery
​(Series Regular - Star Trek Enterprise, General Hospital)
"David directed as well acted opposite me in his indie feature thriller CUT! Having worked with various TV/Film directors and actors throughout my career, David stands out as one of the best in the business. The craft of acting can be challenging, and David provides a
safe space where one can thrive and explore their inner work. His knowledge and experience as an actor and director will help actors of every level reach their full potential and realize their talents. David's enthusiasm for the work is infectious and will motivate and inspire actors of all ages."
Dahlia Salem
​(ER, General Hospital)
"When an actor is able to work with a director on more than one occasion, it's such a gift, but when that director is as giving as they come, like Rountree, it’s even more of a blessing."
David Banks
​(Best Leading Actor CUT!  [2014 Independent Film and Television Festival], over 200 National Commercials)
"I would think that being in a class with David Rountree would be as rewarding as being on set with him.  He was an absolute joy to work with in his film "CUT!", and his astute instincts as a director made developing my character a truly artistic experience as an actor.  His patience and attention to detail are right on.  I highly recommend him as an acting coach because of his incredible talent and knowledge he can share from being both behind and in front of the camera."
Suze Lanier-Bramlett
(The Hills Have Eyes 1 & 2)
"David is the greatest human being I have ever had the honor of working with. Not only is he the most talanted, creative, patient and passionate director I have ever worked with. I believe he will win multiple oscars someday. He is the best in the business overall, from talent to personally. He treats ALL actors on set with the same level of professionalism and respect, wether they are background, have just a few lines, or a Golden Globe winner, everyone is shown their importance in acheiving the end product. It is always an honor to work with David Rountree and I look forward to many decades of working with him! "
Brian Perras
(108 Stitches)
"Director/Actor/Producer David Rountree is a gift to any actor who has established themselves in the industry with workable credits and is ready to take their training to another level. He exudes the confidence and energy of someone who is active in his trade. I experienced first hand his dedication to instruction, and his sharing of knowledge, both practical and technical, in a safe intimate setting, and state of the art facility. It is rare to get this interaction and insight from a Director.  As a Casting Director, I found his style ideal for being able to assess an actor's personality, range and strengths.   For an actor, they will be able to chart and see via video of their evolution of a scene performance.  I will definitely recommend his class as often as I can".  ~Pamela Staton Casting

"Anyone contemplating attending David Rountree’s Workshop, think no more! I have taken many of his workshops over the years and each one is not only educational, it is fun, fulfilling, entertaining, and inspiring. David teaches from real world experiences, because he really works in the field! Not only that but I know first hand that David uses students from his classes on films he is currently working on! (Bonus!)​​

 He understands actors fears, and helps prepare each actor for REAL LIFE, whether it be auditions, meetings or being on set.  I was lucky enough to meet David years ago, and he has continued to be not only a teacher, but a mentor and a friend. His classes are interactive and challenging for actors of all levels. He respects everyone and has a great way of teaching by letting each actor be involved. You can expect to get up and work for the majority of the class! Woo Hoo! Also, you can’t beat the price. He is a solid guy in knowing that actors want to learn and progress but can’t always afford the big bucks certain “classes” demand. Sign up for his class and you will leave there a more relaxed, focused and committed actor". - Kristin Vahl

"I am really thrilled over this class and just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to be part of it.  It is only the second week and I've already learned so many invaluable things about my trade; my passion.  You and David have been super awesome, so thank you for being so real with everyone.  The industry needs more people like you."
